Homemade vegan mint oreos with Creme de Menthe frosting
You know, I’m really not as big as an “emotional baker” as I used to be. When I started this blog, I was always freaking out when things didn’t go my way in the kitchen (and otherwise, too.) There’s plenty of evidence of this from my first blog, megbakes. I think a combination of patience and just a teensy bit more experience, has helped me become a calmer baker.
For instance, I made a similar cookie as these for megbakes. The whole post I lamented about how much trouble I had with the cookies.
The dough kept falling apart and I was about to throw the whole batch of dough out the window.
The same can be said about this Leprechaun Cake. This entire cake was meant for the trash since it busted into a million pieces, but I managed to salvage it.
In comparison, these cookies were a breeze. The dough sliced perfectly, the cookies crisped while baking and the frosting melded with the cookies.
Even those these cookies were pretty stress free, don’t worry I’m still pretty emotional about other things and I’m sure I’ll have some more emotional kitchen messes in the near future – like yesterday 😉
