...try the 36 hour chocolate cookie, which is to say you must make the dough and patiently rest it for at least 24 hours before baking it. which we all know is a stupid torture, as if I've ever had the forethought to say to myself, "gee i'd really kill for a chocolate chip cookie with my coffee TOMORROW afternoon, but not really right now, because right now i'd like to gnaw on a raw carrot."
you can read all about the chemistry here and see the recipe here. eric is kicking a bad habit, and so he's baking a lot as means for distraction. after these were made and eaten he said to me "make sure you pick up some fruit for our cobbler snack tomorrow afternoon." what can I say, my life is charmed.
