When I was a kid, every time I would go to the grocery store with my mom we would stop by the bakery first thing, and I would get a cookie. I assume to keep me from being a pest. But it wasn’t just any cookie. It was a big Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle head sugar cookie slathered in colored frosting and a big goofy smile. I lived for those cookies, not only because I was completely obsessed with Ninja Turtles, but because they were just so damn good.
So it should not be a big surprise that 20 years later, I’m decided to recreate a part of my youth for an equally dorky passion, the premier of the new Watchmen movie. I’m not sure how many people out there that are both comic book nerds and food geeks, but I’m sure I’m not alone in this world. If you haven’t read the Watchmen comic graphic novel, all I’ll say is that it deserves your attention, whether you were a comic book fan in the past or not. So, here’s my attempt at baking cookies and recreating that nostalgic indulgence. I wandered over the Bread and Honey to snag a cookie recipe since those girls do an amazing job.
