Food is flexible. Not that it has flexibility per-se, but you have the freedom of doing whatever the f*ck you want with it. Following a recipe doesn't always mean following it exactly, as most people do. Shame on you! If you like your cookies sweeter, add more sugar, if you prefer them salty, add more salt. There are certain ingredients to work with and add or take away that will not ruin your recipe as expected. i know you're out there, guilty as charged for just following a recipe as is. Why not be creative though?
Take for instance the Friends episode where Rachel attempts to make a trifle, and merges two different (and oh-so-juxtaposing) recipes:
Ross: "It tastes like feet!"
Joey: "Well, I like it."
Ross: "Are you kidding?"
Joey: "...I mean, what's not to like? Custard, good. Jam, good. Meat, good!"
The point being, we can mix and match whatever our taste buds desire... albeit some things were probably never meant to be put together --like perhaps custard and meat-- but hey, whatever floats your boat!
Much like the trifle analogy, the recipes posted have been adapted to suit my personal tastes, (just go with it okay?!) BUT feel free to use the original* recipe or a mix between the two!... i mean,
how badly can you f*ck up something like cookies???... just be smart about it!
And i do promise the recipes will be better than most Friends humor. oh snap.
**bahahaha who are we kidding, there will almost always be an original... i'm not that talented..i'm actually quite the greenhorn***.BUT I'M STILL CONFIDENT IN WHAT I POST***i just googled the etymology of 'greenhorn', you'll be pleasantly surprised at how horrid it is: Middle English greene horn, horn of a newly slaughtered animal [originally an animal with green (that is, young) horns].
And now you know. You're f*cking welcome.
