I garden in regular clothes. Not old, not new, but whatever I have on right then and there. By then, I mean when I feel like gardening. It’s usually in the evening. I don’t know why…
I’ve gardened in a dress and omg was it inconvenient… But I was too lazy to put on something else. It wasn’t a dressy dress, but just one that I never bothered to change out of because it was comfy. My hair was down and whipping around and I couldn’t see…
Convienently, the next time I gardened was with shorts, and a t-shirt. But I wore flip flops… Who cares?! As long as I get my weeding done!!! I spent forever outside that day, so nice with birds chirping and everything. There were so many weeds…
And a toad jumped out and hopped into a clear spot, next to a wall. I didn’t notice and piled a bunch of weeds on top of him. I shoved all the weeds into a bucket and suddenly a toad jumped out at me!!! GAAAAA!!!! Poor little toad… I think I foreclosed his house. In my defense, he did not pay rent!!!
What that has to do with these cookies is beyond me. But these cookies are delicious… And sooooooo soft and fluffy!!!!! I want to fall asleep on them.
Mallow Cookies (NO corn syrup!)
Whole Wheat Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 cup butter
- 3 eggs
- marshmallows recipe as follows
- chocolate glaze recipe as follows
Marshmallows (NO corn syrup)
- 2 tbsp water
- 2 tbsp honey
- 7 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp powdered gelatin
- 1 tbsp water
- 1 egg white
- 1 cup chocolate
- 3 tbsp vegetable oil
for the cookies (and assembly)
Blend the butter with the flour, sugar, salt, and baking soda until sandy. Add in the eggs and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out into a 1/8 inch rectangle and cut out 2 inch circles. I found that my 1/3 cup measuring cup was very useful for this.
Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
Let the cookies cool, then pipe on marshmallows and let that dry for 30 minutes.
Dip into the chocolate glaze and let that set.
for the marshmallows
Soften the gelatin in the cold water.
Meanwhile, combine water, honey, and sugar until soft ball stage, 235 F, or until it forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
Mix the gelatin into the syrup. Beat the egg white until nice and foamy. Keep beating it on medium speed and slowly drizzle in the syrup mixture. Let it beat until stiff peaks form.
Transfer into a plastic bag fitted with a pastry tip.
for the chocolate glaze
Melt the chocolate and then mix in the vegetable oil.
