Oh S!&% Cookies



It must be one of God's little ironic jokes that my friend Lara's fabulous post about de-stressing during the holidays went up Monday and now I'm posting this. I swear I didn't plan it!

So anyway, I'm stressed. Like, really stressed. Thanksgiving weekend was great and I felt like for the first time in a couple years I actually enjoyed a holiday. Panic set in that Sunday night however when I sat down to look at the December calendar. In order for work (which is absolutely nuts as we get ready for upcoming session), the band (we have three shows), the blog (I don't feel like cooking, but then I don't have any content) and me to run smoothly, every single domino must fall at exactly the right moment. There is no room for error people.....

Literally the next day a domino did not fall as I had planned and it's been ridiculous ever since. Just feel like I can't catch up, can't catch my breath, can't stop thinking about something that's diverting much needed brain power. In fact, if you tell me you've finished all of your Christmas shopping I'll probably punch you. In a nice way, but punch you I will.

It should come as no surprise then that a couple days ago I remembered an hour before I was supposed to be somewhere that I said I'd bring desert. OH S!&%! In these circumstances I usually just pick something up on the way, but I'm trying to save a bit of money right now, so I quickly scanned my pantry (a bit lean at the moment) and then googled the couple ingredients I had on hand.

Jackpot!

I'm calling these my Oh S!&% Cookies! They actually turned out great. I mean how can anything with Nutella in it be bad? They're fudgy on the inside, crispy on the edges and only took 30 minutes to make start to finish. Just mix everything in a bowl and then freeze the dough for 10 minutes. Roll out 1 inch balls and and flatten them with a spatula on the baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes on 350 degree and enjoy! Oh, and don't forget to sprinkle the sea salt on top at the end, that's the best part. Next time I might try drizzling some caramel on top or adding some chili pepper for a bit of spice. Can't wait!

Kelly's Oh S!%$ Cookies

1 cup Nutella
1/2 cup flour + 1 teaspoon
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 egg
Coarse Sea Salt for sprinkling

I'm going to try and take Lara's advice to de-stress this weekend. Hoping to get back in the holiday spirit and stop worrying so much.......about everything. I know it will all work out in the end and things will get back to normal. It's hard though when you're in the moment and upset to remember that. Maybe the three cookies I ate the other night will help?:)
