i smell cookies... cookie towels

this morning when i went to dry off with my towel, i noticed that it smelled like cookies.

more specifically, these cookies:

spiced snowballs. just take a snowball recipe and put a bunch of spices in it (here, i've experimented with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, ginger), then bake it an roll it in icing sugar. you can probably use whatever nuts you like (i used almonds; hazelnuts would probably be equally tasty and fattening) and adjust the flavours to your liking for these shortbread-like balls.

(unfortunately, the only thing remaining about them is this photo as the lot of them were gobbled up at the incubator's birthday get-together the night before.)

i guess i underestimated the power of cardamom and how it can permeate everything in your house.

i think i just came up with a product -- food-scented towels! i'm gonna be rich!!!111one

  1. these were good. and i heard a chorus of more than pleased palettes calling "snowballs, snowballs..." as you left, kind of like a throng in Rome hailing the mighty Ceasar as he paraded through the city. thanks.
