I'm going on record to officially call it a rut. That's right... I'm in a baking/sweet making rut. Maybe I'm getting pickier? But, I just can't seem to make anything mindblowingly tasty lately. What's the deal?
Sure, I've made some delicious bar cookies... but, as far as pies and cakes and regular cookies go... I'm consistently striking out. And that sucks. Like really, really sucks, ya know?
This dessert was supposed to be mindblowingly good. But, it missed the mark. I mean, sure... it's tasty.... but, it's not quite there. You know what I mean? Like, it's on the cusp of being excellent... I served this as the anti-fruit dessert this weekend. (My brother Mike doesn't like anything fruit for dessert) and alongside the white goo infested blueberry pie it was good. But, it wasn't great. It was creamy, and peanut buttery.... but, it was too much like a pudding for me. I needed some contrast. I think that a layer of oreo cookies between the peanut butter layer and the chocolate layer would have been delicious. I love it when crunchy things get soggy. (Weird, I know).
Hopefully, I'll get my mojo back soon.
