I was attracted to the Holiday Half Marathon & Ugly Sweater 5k by its date and location but also by the prospect of a big, shiny, extra medal! I mean, it’s dang pretty! And I’d been wanting to try one of these back to back challenges for quite some time.
These are my FAVORITE gingersnap-esque cookies. I won’t call them gingersnaps ’cause they don’t snap. If you bake them right, they’re nice and soft and chewy and amazing. And they were the perfect “sweet appetizer” for Thanksgiving.
You’ve heard of things like triple chocolate cookies, I’m sure. But Triple Birthday Cookies?! What on earth are they? Well, they’re ridiculous, that’s what.
When my mom emailed me the recipe for this bar cookie topped with Peeps, I gagged a bit. Then I decided to make them just to experience the absurdity that is this explosion of sugar.
The jury is out on these cookies from Christina Tosi’s Milk Bar Life cookbook. My brother outright spat them in the sink, my mom who never throws anything away stuck the leftovers in the freezer, and (not to stereotype, these are the facts) my Jewish friends loved them.
