Edible spoons with a dollop of something delicious. Lick the spoon and then devour the spoon as well! The perfect canape with no clean up.
Skimming through all the wonderful baking blogs out there, I found yet another gem in Sprinkle Bakes. The many clever cakes and cookies were already looking pretty good, and then I saw these:
But as these are tuile biscuits, that means they are spread with a spoon into a very expensive stencil that doesn’t seem to be available in the UK. Surely I can make something similar, with a different batter?
I tried this out on Friday with my favourite cut-out cookie recipe, and at first I thought I’d cracked it. Cute delicious spoons, perfect. But I forgot two important things – this recipe makes pretty fragile cookies and they soften up the next day, meaning they make pretty floppy spoons.
So the hunt is on.
After I told my mother about my dream of the perfect cookie spoon, she said, “They sound like a Martha thing.” Which is shorthand for they sound wonderful, but too fussy to bother making. Martha Stewart is awesome, but she’s a robot with an army of design and art school graduates churning out dream crafts. And funnily enough, after a little internet searching, the next recipe I find for cookie spoons is from Martha herself:
This is a much flatter cookie, but maybe more doable. For now. Until I give in and stump up the cash for the spoon stencil.
