A low fat snickerdoodle’s worth a try.
There only is a single gram of fat
in every cookie says the recipe.
But cream of tartar, what the heck is that?
“Scrapings from the barrel when making wine” . . .
at least so Google says. And I’m supposed
to put it in my cookie dough? It sounds
like Russian horsemen on the steppes
attacking villagers and pillaging.
The cupboard’s bare of anything like that.
But baking powder can be used instead.
The villagers are safe. Great. Everything
I need for snickerdoodles is right here.
“Put sugar, softened butter in a bowl”
Does that mean leave the butter in the sun
or can I nuke it in the microwave?
It would be nice to have a recipe
that was precise, that said exactly what
was wanted here. Am I in India
and making ghee? Is soft in Iceland just
the same as soft would be in Borneo?
“And mix. Then add the flour and the rest,
and mix again. Refrigerate the mess.”
I’ve got it. Cookies will be served for lunch.
