Well, because of the hives I’ve gained some weight. Been cooking a lot, and therefore eating a lot. But I made these for a party…I’m only going to have one. (Well, two if you count the one I tried before I brought them to the party.)
Improvised from multiple recipes. The fortune inside is probably a bad idea, but for sure, your future is gonna be SWEET if you make these babies. I used splenda instead of sugar in everything except the glaze.
- 2 Cups powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons water
- dash (teaspoon) peanut oil
Mix powdered sugar with water until as smooth as possible. Add teaspoon peanut oil, or more to get desired smoothness.You could use veggie or olive oil if you want.
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 1 cup hot water
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 tablespoon salt
- 1 large beaten egg
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1/4 cup dry milk
- 3 cups bread flour
- tablespoon cinnamon
- dash nutmeg, allspice, what-have-you
Dump into bread machine in this order. Let yeast and hot water work for 2-5 min for optimal results. Run Dough cycle on machine.
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
uh. mix it good.
After all that’s done, grease a cookie sheet and preheat the oven to 350.
rip about a tablespoon of dough, roll into tiny ball, then flatten into a pancake. gentle dab of filling. over-filling will result in a big delicious mess. fold in half like a taco. then take the “Taco”, and gently press it downward over the rim of a glass, turning the mexican into a chinaman. carefully place on cookie sheet.
bake until browned, and then dab glaze on each cookie after they’ve cooled a bit. then eat them with reckless abandon.
….Also, it turns out they won’t look anything like the title unless you have way more time and patience than I do. I think only one of these little guys is going to come out how I envisioned. FAIL. DELICIOUS FAILURE.
I think the party will be happy with the results, despite all of the useless effort. I’m certainly happy. Win.
