Cookie Sandwich PSA

The past few days have been a flurry of weather activity here in Oregon. On Wednesday it started to snow which turned in to a couple inches overnight:

The sun came out on Thursday and it heated up to around 38°, prompting all the snow to melt. But not to fear, our crazy weather didn’t stop there! There isn’t much snow left on the ground, but it did manage to dip down to about 20° last night, causing school to delay opening for 2 hours due to poor road conditions (aka, people in Corvallis don’t know how to drive on ice, myself included).

It is supposed to drop down to 13° tonight, which I believe is the coldest weather we have seen so far this year. Luckily I don’t need to leave home tomorrow, but I am worried about Steve driving to work. It is my girlfriend duty to worry!

If, like me, you are staying indoors this weekend, make sure you have food on hand. Yes, this is a PSA for cold weather safety. I suggest making lots of sandwiches to hold you over. Oh, did I say sandwiches? I meant cookie sandwiches.

Cookie Sandwiches

This small batch makes 5 cookie sandwiches
  • 1 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 egg, slightly beaten (I used an egg white substitute)
  1. Combine the sugars together and then add the vegetable oil, vanilla (or almond) extract, salt, eggs and baking soda. Whisk well to combine.
  2. Add the flour and stir. Roll out ping pong sized balls of dough on a lined baking sheet. Press each dough ball with a fork and sprinkle with sugar.
  3. Bake at 375 for eight minutes.
  • 3 Squares Semisweet Chocolate Baking Squares
  • Sprinkles
  1. Melt chocolate in the microwave, stirring often until completely melted.
  2. Spread chocolate on cookies and sprinkle with sprinkles.
  3. Add the other half of your cookie sandwich and enjoy!

Unfortunately that 2 hour delay didn’t rid me of all my classes so I do have to head to school today. I can look forward to a double workout and a stress free weekend of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Toddlers in Tiaras. Priorities people. Luckily I got a delightful e-mail from Wells Fargo this morning:

 

 

Thank you, Daddy! I can finally buy my pony! I mean… I can eat for another week. Priorities…

 

Have you had any crazy weather this week?

What are you up to this weekend!?

  1. Totes jellies you guys got some real snow. In Portland all we got was a light dusting yesterday morning but it was gone like, 2 hours later. People still freaked out though, so silly. Call in the national guard!

  2. Hey Camille,
    SO MANY yummy looking cookies! If I lived up there, Iwould never go out of the house- well, maybe to Powells! As for Toddlers in Tiaras- hands down the scariest show on TV! Love you, miss you, hello to you and Steve and the critters

    • Haha, it doesn’t feel too cold as long as the wind doesn’t get going. Then it is miserable!
      We can watch lots of Toddlers and Tiaras together this summer 🙂 One night, Celeste and I stayed up until 5am watching a marathon. It’s addictive!

  3. Yeah the weather has been freakishly cold for california, but i mean probably nothing compared to you guys 😉 I know my friend in michigan ended up with a power outage and snow and hail and a lot of weiiiird stuff! and they said it might snow here in cali, but i kind of doubt it.

    those sandwiches look amaaazing! and every time i get a paycheck my immediate thought is “what delicious food can i get with this money?” lol 😉
