IMG_1036.JPG
IMG_1051.JPG
added cream cheese. meh.


that didn't look so hot, so i'm going to try a different way of baking these babies
IMG_1023.JPG
batch 2!

IMG_1026.JPG
IMG_1030.JPG
IMG_1044.JPG
this time i baked the noodle sin the cookie batter and added a kale leaf for some reason.

IMG_1070.JPG
they didn't turn out so well either...

THE NEXT DAY
IMG_1080.JPG
IMG_1083.JPG
IMG_1088.JPG
i added two new ingredients to the mix and used a can for molding the noodles and batter

IMG_1089.JPG
maybe i can do something with ginger, like chop and sprinkle on top of the cookie?

IMG_1095.JPG
here's the end result. the batter tasted better, but i used too much ginger, and the overall cleanliness of eating the cookie would be terrible, so i scrapped this idea and went to the next one.

new ingredient batch!

the base cookie ingredients were the same so i just introduced a few new things.

IMG_1104.JPG
IMG_1110.JPG
IMG_1107.JPG
IMG_1113.JPG
cream cheese, dried apricots mango sorbet, and apricot preserves. waay different direction here

IMG_1114.JPG
i also brought in some chili powder, cayenne pepper and vanille extract into this mix.

IMG_1120.JPG
IMG_1124.JPG
IMG_1123.JPG
i've heard adding rum helps with a lot of things...

IMG_1130.JPG
here's the new mix!

IMG_1145.JPG
IMG_1147.JPG
IMG_1148.JPG
well... i got a muffin

IMG_1153.JPG
lets change the size on that

IMG_1156.JPG
alright the taste isn't so bad, not bad at all.

IMG_1160.JPG
guess who's back??

IMG_1158.JPG
i baked some ramen crumbles to add texture.

i'll have to add some finishing touches with some icing and it should be set for tuesday.

meanwhile i was thinking of adding apricots and banana crisps to the top of the iced cookie

here is the icing i made with shortening, mango puree, salt, and powdered sugar

Hi,
The sideways photos are a bit off-putting, especially as the orientation is not constant. More captions would also help. Did you bring several kinds of cookies to class today? Caramelizing the bananas might have been a nice touch too. Also, was that a can as a mold?

Great job documenting your process of baking your cookies. I too ended up making a muffin on accident! I liked that you labeled most of the photos. I would rotate your images to make them easier to read. I also would also like to see or read about why and how you came up with your idea for the cookie.

Hi Kirubel,

I can see that your ideation process is very thorough and that you have explored many iterations with your cookies which is great! I enjoyed the humor in the blog. It added interest and kept me, as a reader, engaged throughout the blog. I think the pictures were useful in explaining your process, but I think they would be more viewer friendly if smaller and supplemented with more text. Overall, great job exploring cookie possibilities!
