Hazelnut Cookies and a Double Century

So 200 runs later, you could say things are going pretty well. 😄

Before I go into the details about just how fantabulous this match has been, let’s talk about food.

No proper recipe for you guys today, just sharing a pickle I found myself in.

Yesterday I tried to make myself some good ol’ nutella. Now I could go into great detail documenting my tumultuous history with nutella, but I’ll save that for the day when I actually manage to get it right.

My main problem was with the nut part of the equation. While we did in fact possess hazelnuts, they were almost 2 months past the best before date… They seemed ok, and I wanted my nutella so I trimmed those nuts down to what seemed not foolish to consume and roasted and blended ’em for what turned out to be quite a gorgeous hazelnut paste. A little bit of coconut oil and cocoa powder and it looked like nutella. I then made the mistake of using honey instead of sugar. Not a great idea. Either way though, it seemed apparent at that point that the too-old-hazelnuts maybe weren’t going to taste wonderful in their roasted paste-y form regardless.

And so in a desperate attempt to not waste an entire cup of pretend nutella, I did what any reasonable person would do:

I made cookies.

At a 1:1 ratio with plain flour, an egg, vanilla and of course, half a cup of sugar to the rescue, my nutty situation was resolved.

More importantly though, this cookie production was concurrent with some stubborn tail-enders, a double century reached with a 6, and England dropping their 15th catch of the series.

It’s been a good day in the Fizzle HQ.

 

 

Question: Am I going to have to start explaining cricket terminology on here? I’m starting to realise just how weird it can be if you don’t understand…

    …was that an exaggeration, it did they really drop 15 catches? Also, are you saying you used nuts that had gone bad in the cookies and everything is OK?

    In my estimation AFizzle has gone nuts. I am not surprised Nutella has that effect and many other if I recall right. But looking at the bright side of things, thanks to good cricket results it was happy nutty!
