87/365 - Toll House Traditions
87/365 - 03/27/11
My daughter makes a batch for her college team equestrian events. The team now counts on the cookies at each show. One coach jokes the only reason she comes to the show is for the cookies. And, just like my mom, Kayce never lets the team down. She gets up that morning around 5 a.m. to bake the cookies.. A new toll house tradition has emerged.
Here is some background on the Toll House Cookie (which were "invented" not too many miles from my home) via wikipedia:
The chocolate chip cookie was accidentally developed by Ruth Graves Wakefield in 1930. She owned the Toll House Inn, in Whitman, Massachusetts, a very popular restaurant that featured home cooking in the 1930s. The restaurant's popularity was not just due to its home-cooked style meals; her policy was to give diners a whole extra helping of their entrees to take home with them and a serving of her homemade cookies for dessert. Her cookbook, Toll House Tried and True Recipes, was published in 1936 by M. Barrows & Company, New York. It included the recipe "Toll House Chocolate Crunch Cookie", which rapidly became a favorite to be baked in American homes.
Left over chocolate cake scraps = bon bons!
I've made this recipe before using different ingredients.... the last time I used white cake scraps, orea cookie crumbs and vanilla buttercream.
THIS recipe calls for:
leftover chocolate cake scraps @ 2 cups
@ 1/2 cup peanut butter
@ 1/2 cup vanilla buttercream
@ 1/2 cup marshmallow cream
melted white chocolate chips or white almond bark
crumble the cake scraps into large bowl, add the buttercream, peanut butter and marshmallow cream, I use a sturdy pastry blender to mix this thoroughly.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop the cake 'dough' and press firmly into scoop. If you don't press the cake crumbs into the scoop, they fall apart easily. I refrigerate for a couple hours, then dip into (or drizzle) the melted white chocolate!
These certainly wouldn't win any 'beauty contest' for prettiest desserts, but I promise they are very tasty! This plate will be gone before the end of the night, unless my son has friends over after school.... then they will be gone much sooner!!
You can really use any flavor of cake scraps and frosting/ filling..... chopped up candy bars instead of the peanut butter, the possibilities are endless!
If you don't have cake scraps, you can buy one of the tiny, 1/2 cake mixes by Jiffy that are sold in most american grocery stores! This is also a great way to use up 'cake disasters'!! If you make a cake that ends up in a disaster and you don't want to serve it, don't throw it away, make these bon bons!!
