Cakespy: Olympic Ring Cookies
Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every Monday to share a delicious dessert recipe. —The Mgmt.
The Olympics: a time to celebrate the infinite abilities of the human body and spirit.
Of course, if you're more of an armchair athlete, you'll be happy to have plenty of cookies to keep you company while watching those sporty types do their thing.
While my original hope was to link the cookies together in the tradition of Betty Crocker's Magic Rings, it didn't quite work out. However, when trimmed while still warm and fitted together, they form a lovely Olympic ring, served as a unit that's basically an excuse to eat five delicious cookies at once.
And with cookies like this—lightly chewy in the center, crisp on the edges, and full of butter-sweet flavor, you may just find yourself going at these like it's an Olympic sport.
