I recently did a test run of my Candy Cane Cream Faux-reos for the 3rd Annual Eat My Blog, a charity bake sale from 10am-4pm December 4. The event is being hosted by Tender Greens in West Hollywood, which is kind of a trek but totally worth it considering over 2,000 baked goods will be featured. Plus, all proceeds go to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank.
LA bloggers are the source of many of the sweet treats, but there also a few local chefs and businesses taking part, including Bakelab, The Manila Machine (ube cupcakes, I presume), Sprinkles and the All Jarred Up (they make pies in jars!).
But back to my cookies for a second. My test run went okay, but I’m working on the cookie texture. I want it to be crispy, and mine are a little too crumbly at this point. The peppermint cream, on the other hand, is spectacular. I adapted Joy the Baker‘s recipe, which brilliantly includes white chocolate for a rich, creamy texture. I added some pulverized candy canes for some crunch.
Here’s all the info:
