Last year I had the privilege of interviewing the band Big Sugar (you can check out the interview here, and the band's frontman Gordie Johnson's old family recipe for Weekly Tomato Sauce here). It was my very first interview on the other side of the mic and needless to say I was incredibly nervous! As a result I spent the entire evening before the concert stress baking - and that was the night these cookies were born. I decided to take the opportunity to share the cookies with the band - as soon as the interview was over, Gordie invited me to the greenroom and signed a couple of cd's for me (total fangirl moment right there) and started stacking the cookies in his mouth two at a time. In between bites he told me that they were the best fucking cookies he had ever had in his entire life. I probably would have thought I was dreaming if I hadn't been a complete nerd and completely forgot to turn the recorder off after the interview. Heh.
The next time I saw Gordie I brought these cookies again - I think its safe to say the picture pretty much speaks for itself.
The next day, I got a message from Gordie saying that the cookies didn't even make it to the BC border (about 45 minutes away) before they were gone. Needless to say I think it's safe to say this recipe is a winner! I haven't shared this recipe on the blog until now for some crazy reason, so in honour of National Blog Post Month, I thought I would share!
