persona non sequitur

a review of media by a slightly jaded baby boomer.

Note: created because the guys at the post office, when I bid a new job, claimed it was traditional for people to buy everyone donuts. I claimed not to know this and said I wouldn't buy stuff I wouldn't eat. So Giani made these. For the next two years people nagged me for the recipe.

GIANI’S (it’s your funeral) HABENERO COOKIES

2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder

sift all these together.

1 cup of sugar
1/2 -- 3/4 cup of butter
1 half to a whole dried habenero (depending on how brave you are, but hey, you work at the PO with my husband --well, you’ve been warned). Wear gloves when you do this part, or you should not let your hands wander onto any neuron rich skin areas on yourself or anyone else for several hours, including private areas, nose, eyes and any place you scratch nervously or grope for whatever reason.

Do not use the stem. Chop pod into small fragments .

Cream the butter and sugar together, add the chopped habenero to the mixture. Cover the mix and let it sit overnight. This let's the heat migrate evenly through the recipe so you get an even heat not surprise hot spots

Then take the butter/sugar mix and mix it with one egg
one teaspoon vanilla
one teaspoon cinnamon

Add the flour mixture and form a dough. At this point you can chill it in wax paper into a roll that you can slice and then bake, or you can bake individual spoonfuls.

Bake at 325 -340 degree for ten to 15 minutes until they set up.

Don’t let them burn, otherwise the fumes that result will require a Haz Mat team to rehab your house.

It'll go back up later. I didn't want it near the "food" material.

It'll be back up in a few days. I didn't want it too near the "food" department
