Rapturetastic Twix Cookies

I have a bit of a bone to pick with you, crazy religious guy. Now, I'm not very spiritual myself - if I had to put my horse into the proverbial ring, it would probably be for this guy. What's not to love about a large, happy fat man who's totally chill with everyone? I can get behind an entity who's pretty much like Hurley from Lost.

Even so, whenever someone from the religious community starts to stir shit up, I take an interest. I don't care if you follow the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Xenu, if you start making claims that your god is going to come down and start with the smiting, you better have a real good reason to think that. Of course, let's face it, if any god is going to start up with the smiting, it the Bibilical one - that pillar of salt thing was pretty badass.

So, crazy guy, you said we'd all be dead on Saturday. So I wait for Saturday. It comes. And it passes. Nothing. Thanks a lot crazy guy. Because of you, I baked some super fattening rapture cookies - just in case it really was my last day on earth sans fireballs and zombies. These cookies are giant sugar bombs of goodness and probably have twice the saturated fat than that bacon breakfast you had this morning. But that really didn't make a difference back when we thought we'd be raptured, eh?

Rapturetastic Twix Cookies

2 cups + 2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups Twix bars, coarsely chopped

1) Preheat your oven to 325. In a medium bowl, whisk together your flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2) With an electric mixer, mix up your butter and two sugars until light and fluffy. Add your egg, and continue mixing, then add your yolk. Beat in the vanilla. With a wooden spoon, mix in your dry ingredients. When everything has started to come together, mix in your twix pieces.

3) Plop walnut- to golf ball-sized pieces on your baking pan and bake for about 15 to 18 minutes, or until golden brown. Enjoy!

Love it! I was waiting for a few of my blogging friends to poke fun at that madness. These look tempting...I may need to make them tonight. I'm glad we're both still here :-)
