One giant step on the road to becoming a lawyer. Today was the last day of Bar/Bri. Another day of Honigsberg telling us "everyone passes." I'm actually really glad to be done with classes and have the whole day to study. Lately, its been really hard for me to stay focused in class - I blame it on the fact that we've been doing this for 7 weeks. 7 weeks? That's almost a full quarter! (poor spoiled UC brat)
I wanted to celebrate being done, and I also wanted to wish my fellow classmates good luck. After all, since all but a couple are taking the Bar in San Diego, this was the last time I'd ever see most of them. So at 9pm last night I made cupcakes.
Perhaps I should back the story up a bit. I actually started making cupcakes much earlier. Around 7pm, right after I finished the cobbler. I waited a bit for the oven to cool down (cobbler cooked at 400, cupcakes cooked at 350). However, because I am the world's worst baker and am additionally cursed with the evil oven from hell they didn't come out so good. That's actually an understatement, but you get the idea.
So at 9pm I came up with a scathingly brilliant idea. Actually I'm not sure its all that unique, but it was unique to me. Cookie cupcakes. I always have cookie dough in the freezer for those nights when Jon looks at me with that "what's for dessert" look in his eyes. I grabbed my chocolate chip dough and began pushing it into the cupcake pan. Jon looked on bewildered, not entirely convinced that my plan would work.
I frosted them with chocolate frosting, just in case there wasn't enough chocolate in the cookies.
They came out great! Everyone in the class took a bite and said "It tastes like a cookie" which made sense, cause really, it was a cookie. (I'm sure these people are going to do GREAT on the bar)
These are great because they're small, chocolaty, and easy to make. Honestly, they can be made with any cookie dough, and any frosting you like. They'd be great to take to a party, and equally great to serve for guests. I think I found my new bestest dessert.
