Egg People

We had all of the neighbors over for an open house today! I spent all morning baking (and baking and baking some more). One of the things I made were some sparkled ginger cookies. I love making them (unfortunately this batch didn’t turn out quite right…. something got lost when I doubled it, ah well) and there’s a moment when you combine the oil, soy milk and molasses that everything turns into this wonderful science experiment. All three of those ingredients separate into these beautiful bubbles, reluctant to get together and have a party.

p1020483I love this one because it looks like some of these bubbles have little brown eyeballs. I feel a bit like God, messing with my little creations… poking them with spatulas and then stirring it all up into a tasty cookie. Tasty people cookies… heehee! Oh dear.
