Dead Love: Zombie Cookies … Not the Virtual Kind

OK, I might as well expose myself … I mean trauma-wise, of course. Here’s the problem: I am being tasked to make zombie cookies and this is freaking me out.

Now you might think just because I made that amazing brainloaf à la zombie (you remember that, right?) that I am a genius, genie, jinn in the kitchen. Well, no. I am a a sashimi-raw food-lover and the whole cooking bit is an incredible ordeal. For example, I prefer my cookies in raw batter form, dripping off the spatula or spoon. Good, right? Some of you probably know what I mean. That’s why I was so excited about making the brainloaf.

So here’s the deal: I know there are some zombie bakers out there, and if you’d share your zombie cookie, candy, cake or cupcake recipe with me, I’d be so appreciative. If you have photos, please post on my Facebook page (Erin Orison). Also, please let me know if I can share the recipe here with other dessert-challenged zombie-types. And please, I know eating brown sugar out of a box with a spoon is oh-so-yummy to the point of delirium, having done this before, but that does NOT qualify as a dessert.

Oh, and I’m hoping to have some tasty zombie whatever at the DEAD LOVE parties at  Book Passage on September 10th and at Rebound Books on the 11th and possibly some of the other events (see calendar), which is why the whole baking thing has me so sickeningly stressed.

So cook on, my zombie fiends, help if you can, and may the fierce be with you.
