It was an itsy bitsy teenie weenie purple polka dot cookie! Now, I dare you to not have that song running through your head. That's the exact tune that was stuck in my head while I was making these. You see, I didn't have apricot jam, so I used raspberry preserves - there're my purple polka dots. And then, I decided that since I've been baking up a storm, I needed to downsize my cookies into a cute little one or two bites - there's the itsy bitsy teenie weenie. Therefore, they're my IBTWPPD cookies. Because I really am not willing to type that out even one more time :)
I halved the recipe and made cookies using only one teaspoon of dough per cookie, giving myself 38 adorable little cookies which baked up quite nicely in 7-8 minutes. Well, 30 adorable little cookies. The first eight, I didn't realize how little the cookies spread, so they ended up looking like speckled rocks rather than flat and cookie-like. Tasty, just not cookie-like enough for me. What can I say? I'm picky when it comes to my cookies!
And what did I do with all of these IBTWPPD cookies? Weelllll... I brought most of them into work... But a couple of them paired perfectly with my raspberry tea one afternoon this weekend while I decided what to make for dinner. What? You really thought I'd resist them? Thanks Heather, for picking such a different cookie - I think I'm proof that they're irresistable!
