"cookie madness" news and stories
Elizabeth of Foodaphilia, creator of the very impressive and drool-worthy Elvis cake, is at it again. Inspired to head to the kitchen by a recipe Anna posted last February on Cookie Madness, she whipped up a batch of Frito Candy. I am intrigued by this recipe as it mixes savory and sweet together in a totally appealing way (I also like the fact that it pulls peanut butter into the mix).
I love that the star of this recipe is a cup of Fritos. After having listened to the Kitchen Sisters podcast about the birth of the Frito, I think that the man who invented the Frito would approve of this recipe, as he was a big proponent of using his product in recipes and new food creations.
If you decide to whip this recipe up over the weekend, make sure to post a picture of it to our Flickr group so we can see the results!
Anna, from Cookie Madness, made a great find the other day at her local supermarket in Austin: Dulce de Leche Oreos. These limited edition cookies aim to pair a slightly milky caramel-flavored cream filling with the classic chocolate wafer cookies of Oreos, though Anna said that the filling tasted mostly buttery with only notes of caramel.
For some reason, the limited edition cookies are not listed on the main Oreo website, though they do get a brief mention on the wiki entry for Oreos and I finally found them listed on the Comida Kraft site, Kraft's spanish-language counterpart, which may be an indication that the cookies are not going to be mass marketed in quite the same way that the peanut butter and mint chocolate Oreos were when those flavors were first released. And buttery or not, the chocolate/caramel combination still sound like a promising one for Oreos, so keep an eye out for them.
