This is what I did during Hurricane Sandy. Got some hunkering down supplies- practical stuff like non-perishables and wine but then I realized I didn't think about things like dessert. Luckily I had some ingredients that I was able to throw together to make a cookie I would have never made otherwise. It was kinda like a Chopped challenge.
I had some free samples of Dandies marshmallows that have been hanging out in the cupboard for a while, I had flour, sugar, coconut oil, some spices. So what I came up with was a sort of a Coconut Marshmallow Snickerdoodle, if you will. Marshmallows got me thinking about Ghostbusters so then I just threw some spirulina into the mix and I ended up with...
Ectoplasm Stay-Puft Cookies
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
about half tsp spirulina powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/4 + 2 TB vegan milk
vegan marshmallows (2-3 per cookie) 24 will work.
mix dry ingredients minus sugar and marshmallows, then mix wet in a separate bowl with sugar. Pour the wet into the dry and mix. fold in marshmallows at the end. make into about 12 balls including about 2 marshmallows per ball. flatten balls between you palms gently, then place on cookie sheets. bake for 12 minutes at 350.
Nerd Alert! The Ghostbusters car was in front of a movie theater one night when we lived in Los Angeles. As soon as Joe heard about it, we had to walk down there and get a picture.
