Happy Birthday Carla!
I was trying to find the perfect time to make these for you. I’ve had them on the brain since Christmas.
Hope you love them!
And you have the best birthday ever!
You totally deserve it!
I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful bloggy friend in you. You rock!
Okay readers, today we are celebrating Carla’s Birthday with a surprise bloggy party for her. Jen of Juanita’s Cocina thought it would be fun to put together a group of Carla’s buddies and surprise Carla on her special day. I had been really chomping at the bit to make these cookies I found in a Martha Stewart Magazine. I mean they’re Moose Cookies for pete’s sake. Chocolate Moose Cookies to boot. So they were perfect for Carla as her blog name is Chocolate Moosey. Talk about kismet. Until they flopped.
Dang that Martha Stewart!
I’m not even sharing the recipe.
So take that Martha.
Okay it’s likely not Martha’s fault.
Or is it….
Carla is such a sweet gal. I’ve come to know her through blogging and she’s just so real and honest. I love that about her. She embraces who she is and doesn’t try to be anything but Carla, and that is just one of the many things I adore about her. She has a great sense of humour and fun, which I also dig about her. Add to that she’s a talented cook and amazing photographer. I’m lucky to count her among my friends and am ever grateful we found each other.
Please make sure you take a minute to leave a comment to say Happy Birthday to Carla. I’ll just let you know I am literally hurtling toward Florida in our car right now so it may take till late evening for me to approve comments. Birthday wishes are always so much fun. You can also head over to Carla’s blog and say Happy Birthday to her there.
Okay here’s the lowdown. This is the second time I’ve tried to make these moose cookies by Martha and this is the second time they have flopped. I tried everything I could think of today to firm them up and not have them turn into blobs in the oven. Carla I love you and I tried.
This is the cookies prior to the oven:
Super cute right…everything looking good.
Then I put them in the oven and….well… yah….
Seriously man. That’s just wrong on so many levels.
This is the moose blobs after cooking:
Luckily I had enough sense to just make some by rolling them in a ball and plopping them on the cookie sheets. They tasted great so there’s that I suppose.
Don’t forget to visit all the other Chocolate Moosey friends who participated in today’s Surprise Birthday Party for Carla. You will love them all.
