I'm really feeling it!

Cooking with TAY: E3 Hype Edition

NEW MASS EFFECT?!? NEW MASS EFFECT. Imma have to bake these feels out:


1 1/4 cup flour

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp cardamom

2 sticks butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3 cups “old fashioned” oats

1 package butterscotch chips

1+ bottles local shiraz

+1 E3 hype



1. Combine baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and cardamom in a bowl. Consume as much red wine as you like (whatever *feels* right).

2. Beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Gradually add dry mix.

3. Stir in oats and butterscotch chips.

4. Drop by rounded spoonful onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper; bake 9-10 minutes.


6. Realize that your definition of “rounded spoonfuls” is 100% TOO MUCH.

7. Chill. Take a hot second to watch “Beautiful Creatures” on SyFy. You’re tipsy and befuddled but whatever - WE SHALL PRESS ON.


8. Cool cookies on a cooling rack. Admire your work.

9. The SUGAR HIGH is not nearly as potent as the E3 HIGH of a new Mass Effect game, but we make do.


10. Cool and then display on a fancy crystal pedestal.


11. YOU DID IT!! Now just sit tight for the next 1.5 years - you can do that, right?
