Yeah, yeah ---- I know, this tune has already played but I tell you what, once you see these fish in person they will put a "Stranglehold" on you too! Accept it and go with the flow!!! You'll probably buy Pete and me steaks.
( I would rather have a lobster,
Just do not, I repeat do not send us your first born son or anything like that.
You have to raise your own kids!!
Can you tell by now these are favorites of Ol'Lotsoffish ?
Oh, and here is another fav or Ol'Lotsoffish and Karen's too.
Not sure about Ol'Conrad?
Weird Ass Cookies
formulated by Karen
1 cup butter
"yes real butter do not substitute cause there is to much water in the artificial crap
and it will affect the texture."
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 to 3 Tablespoons hot sauce
according to taste.
is this getting weird enough yet?
2 cups all purpose white flour
2 1/2 cups oats
put half the amount of raw oats into a blender til a powder, or not.
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup dry cocoa powder
ya know like in a can that Hershey makes
It is optional to add
2 cup, nuts or chocolate chips or both
if ya want both I would cut it back to 1 cup each but,
that is what I would do.
Here we go, the fun part!.
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy, and I mean LIGHT AND FLUFFY!
To many folks do not cream these ingredients enough and then they
wonder why they have weirder cookies only the family
hog will eat.
Then beat in the hot sauce.
Add the eggs and continue beating until all is mixed up and even more light and fluffy.
Combine dry ingredients and mix together, dump in the chips or nuts or both
and stir all together. Coating these goodies with the flour mixture
protects the chips from melting into the batter during baking.
Finally stir wet and dry mixtures together until you get a soft but, firm dough.
Refrigerate for about an hour, so the dough will not stick to your hands.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees and pull out the cookie sheets.
NOW some more weird ass ingredients.
In a small bowl combine
1/4 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinammon
of one of the following
Cardamon, Chili Powder, or Finely ground Black Pepper
if you're weird like Ol'Lotsoffish you could use all three
and I repeat
bitch at me if you end up in the emergency room
with your belly on fire.
When the dough is chilled, roll about 1 tablespoon of it into a ball with your
hand and then roll the ball around in the granulated spicy sugar crap.
Place the coated raw dough balls onto the cookie sheet and gently
flatten with a fork.
HINT: slide the fork away from the dough do not lift the fork up.
Of course you can do that if you want to suck the dough
off the fork in between cookies.
or just put the ball of rolled dough onto the cookie sheet for a softer cookie.
Then of course shove the cookie sheet into the preheated oven.
Bake until the edges are firm and not soft.
a little over 10 minutes at sea level.
Transfer to racks for cooling. If you leave the cookies
on the cookie sheet a minute or so after taking from the
oven, they will lift off much better without crumbling.
This recipe makes 3 dozen nice sized cookies, they sure are not lady fingers!
PLUS any left over sugar and spices mixture is really good sprinkled over
