Happy Hump Day!
So, yesterday I didn’t do a Try It Tuesday because I was trying desperately to calm a very fussy baby, so the conditions were not conducive to trying to bake, cook, or craft. But today is a different story! Little Miss is in a good mood, which means Momma is in a good mood. And when Momma is in a good mood, everyone wins. Including you!
So today, I’m doing a Try It Wednesday!
For today’s TIW, I’m actually going to try something not from Pinterest *gasp*! Shocking, I know.
Back at my baby shower this summer, a mommy-friend of mine gave me this cookie mix:
Its Milk Makers Lactation Cookies! Apparently, they are made with all natural ingredients that are supposed to help boost your milk supply. All of the ingredients are organic (yay!) and packed with milk boosting ju-ju! I haven’t had a chance to try them, so I thought I would do so today!
First I gathered my ingredients:
Please ignore the overflowing basket of laundry in the background.
All you need is:
1 package Milk Makers Cookie Mix
1 stick butter
2 tablespoons water
I preheated my oven to 350 and started to work. First, I softened the stick of butter (I used hormone-free butter; I wanted these bad boys to be as good as possible!) . It took it a while to soften up (that’s what she said) and so I had to nuke it for about 20 seconds (long enough to soften but not so long that it melted):
Paula Deen’s favorite ingredient.
Then, I added the (organic) eggs and water and mixed well:
The butter was still a little chunky. Bah.
Finally, I added in the entire bag of cookie mix:
Yes, your eyes do not deceive you. The “M” has nipples.
The package said that after you blend everything together, that the mix is supposed to make 12 cookies. Well…. that would make for HUGE cookies! So I scooped out a normal cookie-size scoop and placed them on my greased cookie sheet:
Me want cookie!
After about 11 minutes, the cookies were done and ready to be taste-tested:
Nom, nom, nom.
They were SUPER yummy (I mean, I did eat 3!). I don’t know if they actually help with lactation (its too soon to tell) but I will definitely be eating these yummy cookies every day until they’re gone. I’ll let you know how it goes!
