Snow day cookies

Last Wednesday was apparently "Snowmageddon" on the East Coast, and Toronto got a good taste of it as well. Jacob's school preemptively canceled class the day before - the snow hadn't even started to fall but the media was getting out of control.

Jacob was thrilled to have the day off and spend the day with his little brother and his new dog. Just before lunch, Jacob decided that we needed to make cookies. Not just any cookies, but sandwich cookies made with chocolate cookies and peanut-butter filling.

It took Meredith and I about 30 minutes to find a decent base recipe, but Meredith pulled through with the help of one of her cookbooks and several changes. The cookies were more domes than flat cookies, so the final product looked more like a brown planet with a peanut-butter equator. Jacob decided that they looked like "broken bakugans*," so that's what his creations are called.

*Bakugans are robot balls that transform into various creatures.
