Desperate Working Mommas
Your one-stop site for fanatical television snarking, questionable political analysis, occasional attempts to address the parenting issues facing working mothers, and halfhearted promises to stop obsessing about the entertainment industry, already! Oh, not to mention the random bitching and moaning. There's always that.

The Great Cookie Caper! (well, that's what I would have called it, anyway...)

I'm not usually a Joiner, but for cookies? I'm totally willing to be flexible. Because it is cookies, you know what I'm saying? Oh, I think you do. COOKIES.

Anyhoos, in honor of Susie's Blog Cookie Exchange challenge, I am unveiling my mother's very own top-secret, scrumptiously-tasty, super-special Cuckoo Cookie recipe. (Shhh. Let's just keep this between you and me, shall we?)

Grandma Sue's Cuckoo Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup cocoa
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 pkg marshmallows

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream shortening and sugar, then beat in egg. Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl, then add to creamed mixture alternately with milk; beat well. Add vanilla and nuts. Drop onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Top each cookie with half a marshmallow, pressing gently. Bake 2 minutes more or until marshmallow melts. Cool. Spread with *Cocoa Glaze.

*Cocoa Glaze

1/2 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp hot water
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix together and spread immediately.

Then totally hide those suckers because they move speedy quick if you don't, and it is entirely likely that you will come home from work jonesing for a Cuckoo Cookie, only to be met with a cookie jar full of crumbs. You know why? Because your family members are freaking greedy and inconsiderate Cuckoo Cookie snatchers, that's why!

Oh, That Sounds GOOD. And I'm very glad I clicked over to your other post because I was DYING to know why they were called Cuckoo. I mean, given your personality it sorta made sense (just a joke - love you!) but the cocoa/cuckoo mistranslation is pure linguistic-detective genius.)
