if i could rule the world not much would change.
think of me as sort of like the english monarchy. really kind of useless but there as a figurehead/standard/upholding of our morals & greatness of our country type of deal. i also have a bridge in brooklyn i want to sell you...
i would be kind and benevolent. but i would issue some sort of decrees...
1. if you drive slow stick to the right lanes! the left lanes are for the fast cars. stay out of the way.
2. don't spit or hock loogies. it's nasty.
3. if you are famous please hire a NO person. a person who is on your payroll to tell you no.
no tiger, bad kitty.
no! you can not wear that to the oscars.
no! you can not go on another coke binge.
no! you can not drink and drive.
4. if you are famous and particularly if you are an athlete. in your off season please take some public speaking courses. ummm, uhhh, and you know what i'm sayin' are not answers to questions that reporters ask you. there is nothing wrong with sounding semi-intelligent.
5. there should be freshly baked cookies in the kitchen at all times.
the world would be a happier place.
chocolate peanut butter thumbprint cookies: sunset magazine dec. 2009
10 ounce bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup peanut butter ***nutella would be great instead of peanut butter***
Put chocolates and butter in a medium metal bowl and set bowl over a pan filled with 1 in. of simmering water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until melted, then remove from heat and let cool slightly. Whisk in eggs and sugar, mixing until combined. Then whisk in flour, baking powder, and salt. Chill dough, covered, until firm, about 2 hours.
Let dough sit at room temperature 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350° and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop 1 tbsp. portions of dough, rolling each into a ball, and put onto sheets 1 in. apart. Press your thumb into center of each cookie ball, making a small well. Fill a resealable plastic bag with about 1/2 cup peanut butter.
With scissors, snip off 1 corner of bag; squeeze about 1/2 tsp. peanut butter from bag into each well. Bake as directed. Makes 40.
Bake cookies until they no longer look wet on top, about 8 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets.
so... if you ruled the world, what would you decree?
