As of today I still have not figures out how to get my story from where it is right now the ending I already have ready in my head. It has been almost a month now and I still haven’t figured out the next steps. Hmmm Maybe I am thinking about it too much?
So I tried a new recipe. I always resort back to cooking to get the creative juices flowing again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. None the less, I find it relaxing.
Today, I tried something new. It started with croissant dough. So once I had that dough done. Quite a chore in itself, but so worth it. And of course you won’t find the recipe for traditional croissants on any dieters list. LOL
Then I looked in my spice cabinet to see what I could come up with. So here it is:
½ cup white sugar.
Heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground ginger.
I mixed that up really well. It smelled wonderful in my kitchen at this point.
Then I laid out each triangle croissant and brushed it with melted butter. Then spread the seasoning mixture on top of that and rolled it up.
So after I completely used up all the dough and I had a sheet full of these little tasty treats, I placed them in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or so. Until they were golden brown and flaky.
Oh my God! Let me tell you, this was a slice of heaven right out of the oven. I will definitely be making these again, but I think I will make larger triangles and maybe use a small piece of dark chocolate in the center as well.
So, no, I didn’t find a solution to the writer’s block but I did make up a tasty new recipe. Not bad for a bored day’s work.
