South Park Cookies! (recipe time!)

Hi! It’s Emlyn

Wednesday night was a night to remember. South Park premiered its midseason episode at 10PM EST. 

I cried.

It was hysterical.

Two hours before hand, I whipped these up to celebrate, and they were pretty awesome. They tasted like frosting cookies you find in bakeries! :)

Cookies:

  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar for decoration

(makes 24 cookies)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, shortening and sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt, stir into the creamed mixture until dough comes together. Roll dough into walnut sized balls and roll the balls in sugar. Place them on an unprepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  3. Bake cookies 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, until bottom is light brown. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

Frosting:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, softened
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

(makes 1 cup)

Combine ingredients and beat on medium speed until smooth and fluffy.

I made the five cookies with one cup of frosting, so you may have to make more frosting/less cookie. I also made jumbo cookies for more decorating room :)

South Park decorating:

Stan: Red and blue icing (Betty Crocker store bought)

Cartman: Blue and yellow icing (B.C.)

Kyle: Take some of the frosting you made and tint it green. Apply to the top of the frosting you’ve already put on the cookie

Kenny: Tint pre-made frosting orange (5 yellow, 3 red drops of food coloring) Use that instead of the white, and use red/brown to create the hood.

Marble Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Oreo Frosting

Hi! I recently made these with Zackarié, yet I still haven’t tried them. That needs to change…urgently.

Cupcake for breakfast, maybe? ;)

Mmm *_*

(For the Cake)
1¾ cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
⅓ cup milk, room temperature
⅓ cup heavy cream, room temperature
½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
⅓ cup cocoa powder
¼ cup boiling water

(For the Frosting)
1½ cups of confectioners sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick of butter (softened)
2-3 tbsp heavy cream
5-7 Oreos

~

1. Preheat to 350 degrees

2. Measure your milk and cream together probably in a pyrex (measuring cup) and set aside.

3. Whisk together your flour, baking soda and salt. Put a kettle on to boil so you get your boiling water ready for the upcoming part.

4. Mix the butter and sugar until combined. Add your eggs and vanilla after that!

5. Slowly alternate flour/milk mixtures until they’re both incorporated.

By now, you have finished your vanilla cake!

6. Now, take the boiling water and pour it into another bowl, along with your cocoa powder and a cup of your vanilla batter. Make sure you mix this well, you don’t want clumps of powder in your batter.

7. Pour in about 1/3 – 1/2 of a full cupcake in your tin in vanilla batter.

8. Then, put a good spoonful of chocolate batter on top – here’s the tricky part. Take a fork and reach under and around, bringing the vanilla over the top of the chocolate for a marbled effect. If it gets a little muddy, you’re mixing too much. Also, to cheat a little I poured a bit of vanilla on top of the chocolate if I wasn’t happy.

9. Bake your cakes for about 20 minutes. Right as you put these in the oven, grab a stick of butter to soften on your counter.

10 After your cupcakes are done, your butter should be soft enough to make frosting. Nice! Beat the butter until fluffy, then add in the rest of the ingredients, minus the oreos.

11. After your chocolate frosting is nice and fluffy, toss your oreos into the bowl and smash em up with your beaters real good. Since I’m doing this with a hand mixer, I can essentially punch the oreos with my mixer until they’re broken. Then you can run the mixer again until the oreo pieces are fully mixed into the batter.

Mine came out pretty damn close to the picture….once I get out of bed I’ll edit the post to add my own picture :)
