Here's something to fire up your Fourth: Buffalo wing sauce cookies.
You heard me. Sugar cookies. Iced with Buffalo wing sauce frosting. Completely insane. But shockingly delicious.
When Hope - chief pastry goddess over at Hope, Faith & Gluttony - asked me if I wanted to try some, I though it was a gag. Then the cookies arrived.
Shaped like cartoon drumsticks, they're sweet like regular sugar cookies, then hit you with a hot after burn. Just enough to bring the sweet heat, but not enough to get you charging for the nearest fire hose.
Thinking I was losing my mind for liking them, I passed some out. And with the exception of a few of the more dainty ladies, the response was the same: surprise at how good they are. And how perfect they'd be at the end of a big Buffalo wing-fest.
So grab some for your Fourth barbecue bash, and end the party with some sweet fireworks.
[Word of advice: They are homemade to order, and take a full day for the icing to dry. So order them 2 days before you need them.]
You get a baker's dozen per pound, and that'll run you $28.
