Bath Cookies … of solid ROCK!On Jul 6, 2012 3 Comments
One night nearly two weeks ago, I decided to make some bath cookies. Why? I have no idea. Wanting to play with something new, wanting to expand my creations, who knows. But I made them. And I have to say… they were super easy.
Mixing the dough – easy.
Rolling into balls – Super easy and not at all sticky.
Cooking – Piece of cake…er… cookie!
Using… yeah, um, no.
Using my local lab rats (aka my kids), I popped a couple of cookies in the bath and waited with baited breath for them to dissolve and spread lavender goodness through out the warm water. I watched. And watched. Aaaaaand watched.
The recipe I had said not to crumble them or it would turn the bath water milky, but these cookies were just sitting there. Like perfectly round turds on the bottom of the bath.
Crumbling them showed why they were still solid after five minutes soaking in the water – they were as hard as rocks! If these were edible, they would break your teeth! These would break false teeth!
Still, they were fun to make and made my house smell fantastic to the last corner (hot oven plus essential oil equals smelling it half way down the block!). Not sure I will continue tweaking the recipe as I find majority of my customers (mums) don’t get time to soak in the bath, which is the target audience bath cookies are directed at. Might bring the recipe back out around Christmas time when I put together some hampers though, they sure do look pretty!
