The Tipsiest of Kitchens

Everyone knows that the holiday season brings everyone together to celebrate health, happiness, and life. We find ourselves gathering with friends, dressing in our most festive fashions, and dancing to Bing Crosby Christmas classics. We fill our kitchens with nostalgic aromas and indulge in extra delectable fare, all the while sipping on bubbling champagne and cocktails.

This was NOT one of those times. Phewww!

True, I had an apartment full of friends, my kitchen smelled like warm cookies and there was something sparkling to drink…

Too bad it was Four Loko.

It has the caffeine!


All of these factors put together and all of the ingredients in the pantry led to the tipsiest of kitchens! Luckily, I had a great assistant and featured baker, Alex. As an apron wearing superforce we made sure to add all the precise ingredients, bake the cookies at the exact amounted time, and decorate with impeccable taste.

However, just like this photo, things did get a bit blurry.

Tipsiest

To be honest we kind of threw a bunch of ingredients into a bowl, adding anything we came across during the process, and put them into the oven until one of us remembered they were still in there. To our serious surprise, they were curiously commendable.

Maybe it just was the Four Loko.

Tipsiest Kitchen-Sink Cookies

2 Sticks Unsalted Butter (softened)

1 Cup Brown Sugar

1 Cup White Sugar

2 1/4 Cup AP Flour

1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder

1 Tsp. Baking Soda

1 Tsp. Salt

1 Tbsp. Vanilla

2 Large Eggs

WE ADDED (OPTIONAL):

Big handful of chopped chocolate, slivered almonds, crumbled bacon that was hanging around the stove.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium sized bowl beat together the butter and sugars with a mixer until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time to the mixture. Add the vanilla (we may have added a little extra.) Beat until combined.

In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, cocoa, and baking soda. Take this mixture and add in small batches to the wet ingredients. Beat just until dough has formed. With a wooden spoon stir in any ingredients you see lying in arms length of you. We had some great options. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

We even toasted some almonds to make this cookies even flashier.

But really, be careful when you drink and bake.
