Here we are getting ready to start the process of making “The Allee Willis Chocolate Chip Cookie Supreme”. Since I am completely helpless in cooking certain things, I had to enlist the help of Ernie. Just for the record I did make the meatloaf myself. When it comes to mixing more than 2 ingredients I get very lost. It’s an attention thing I suppose but Ernie did the first part of the cookie process and that was mixing all of the ingredients together with our vintage Kitchen Aide Mixer. Just so everyone knows, I retrieved the chocolate chip cookie recipe from the Toll House Chocolate Chip bag. There were a few things that I thought of that weren’t on the bag but those tips will pop up in this series.
I will never forget when I worked part time for a baker. He said one of the hardest things was working with icing. He was right. Anyway, I wasn’t sure what I was in for here so I went nuts and purchased all sorts of colors. Can you guess which color was used for Allee’s lips?
Some basic ingredients. Butter, baking soda, brown sugar, flour, and vanilla extract (not pictured here). I get nervous around brown sugar as I can literally eats spoonfuls of the stuff.
Mix it all together and let the baking begin. I must also give credit to Charles Phoenix for my curiosity in creating with food. I’m no Charles Phoenix that’s for sure, but it can be an adventure creating art with food.
Denny, I know that you meant to hold the reveal of the cookie until part 4 but I took the liberty of putting the finished product in here so people would see the import of learning how to make your most sensitive portraiture of me as a chocolate chip cookie. I love the suspense of publishing this in four parts so that no one even sees what you’re making for days, but I think it’s a better come-on to see the final result so folks can pay extra attention to the actual steps of making such a monument of batter. Of course, the fact that you already posted the finished product on the AWMOK Facebook page gave me a little extra impetus to do this.
I have a box of all different icing flavors. I rarely make cakes but when I do having these in every color is an absolute must!
The aforementioned AW meatloaf is here: https://www.alleewillis.com/awmok/kitschenette/2011/01/26/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-me-as-meatloaf/
I love the in-motion shot of the vintage KitchenAid mixer.
What are Spread Sticks?
Love the Arm & Hammer. Did you use it to clean the chips?
I’ve awarded the Camembert on behalf of the entire “The Allee Willis Double Chocolate Chip Cookie Supreme” four part series.
I absolutely understand what you did here. I’m glad you took the liberty of doing that.
I love that this massive “The Allee Willis Double Chocolate Chip Cookie” pops up first thing!
Spread sticks are butter. Instead of melting it or whatever, you pretty much use it like a pen and rub it on the pan or pot, whatever you are cooking in.
OMG. The Arm & Hammer was used in the batter, it’s baking soda.
Eating all this sugar had me jetting downstairs this morning and starting up some new paintings.
Can we say sugar rush? Weeeeeeeeeeee….
Arm & Hammer…. That’s how much I know about cooking!!
hahahah awesome…it’s used for cleaning too though, so you weren’t entirely off!!
Me too. We walked into the market and I just went for the icing and chips and was ready to leave when I was told I needed other ingredients.
I want one of those cookies!!! he sez, eating a chocolate chip cookie(at work but don’t tell anybody and when work’s over it’s off to see the Mardi Gras, more on that later)…..seems the (chocolate chip)cookie monster calls my name way too frequently…even tho i’ve got four boxes(two of which will be used for “bargaining” at Mardi Gras) Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies at the house…
I’m so glad your jealous Bill! We are hopefully going to be cutting into Allee’s head and face this evening.
Allee is going to taste super with a nice, large glass of milk.
Have fun at Mardi Gras!
Denny – Yer gonna need to put together a whole Allee Willis cookbook!
Not at all a bad idea!
oh man, i should not have looked at this!!! ….says the grouchier by the minute tubber on a diet who really,really really wishes she were drinking something with alcohol in it while eating this insanely delicious looking cookie instead of sipping some bland decaf tea……sigh…….LOVE how you always turn everything into a 50 part series too…..the pics are great…you guys need some chef hats!
Congratulations Denny. I would have eaten the ingredients before they hit the oven. I’m going to try this at home and make a portrait of Feathers and Whiska. and self portrait of ME. I’m a sugar cookie kinda guy.
Thank you everybody! Oh geez, the cookbook idea, my gears are turning.
Good idea Michael.
Well Pigmy, it was awfully hard constructing this Allee cookie. I had to lick the bowl and my fingers the entire time.
