I should be more prepared for MTT’s random requests for dessert. I don’t make dessert everyday, and he doesn’t have a huge sweet tooth, but there are days he just feels like a sugary end to dinner (usually when dinner is especially good, I think)….
Today I made classic Indian keema (ground meat). I didn’t photograph it for a blog post, but I should have…it’s a favorite in this household so I know I will have another opportunity soon.
After dinner MTT said “I feel like dessert today”. Usually I love the opportunity to bake but sometimes I’m totally caught off guard with only basic ingredients on hand.
I decided to make a basic sugar cookie but flavor it with a pudding mix I had on hand.
The result was a soft cookie, crispy on the outside but soft and dough-y on the inside…when eaten warm from the oven they provided a sweet and filling end to a yummy traditional Indian dinner.
