Its really simple…
The Flour cookbook went for the win again yesterday. This time I made browned butter and vanilla rice krispie treats during a mini baking party with Danielle. These were basically your run of the mill rice krispie recipe with two important alterations. 1) brown the butter and 2) while browning the butter, add vanilla bean.
I grew up on Rice Krispies and my Mom makes a killer rice krispie. This was just like hers but with a little something extra. Seriously. Browned butter is sent from heavens. I’ve already had three.
Izzy has had 0 but I caught her trying to climb on the counter top this morning. Looks how angry she is at being denied treats. It’s a frustrating life for this cat.
I’m enjoying a lovely 4 day weekend. Friday was all about yoga and cleaning, Saturday was all about being social, Sunday is all about food and Monday is all about my upcoming Remedies Mid Term. Do you have a three day weekend? How are you spending it?
I’ve spent today doing absolutely nothing! I should probably go do some homework so I don’t spend my day off tomorrow doing it.
Did you see the cake-batter rice krispy treats on how sweet? OMG.
Those rice krispies look so delicious. I want them asap. I have a crush on vanilla beans.
Wow, those sound so good! I love the idea of browning the butter. I bet that adds… “a lot of depth of flavor.” 🙂
if this were facebook, I would “like” your comment
ok i just made heidi from 101 cookbooks skillet cookies, but obvi had to brown the butter. Not a mistake.
Wow, those crispies sound pretty darn good!
I looked like Izzy all day yesterday as my co-workers nibbled on scones and muffins. Bastards. Well not really….I am just a bitter recovering pastry addict.
This might be one of my favorite comments ever.
