Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy dummies! Today, we have a very special guest, it’s leen! You guys! Hi! I’m so exited to be here! Oh my gosh! I am so excited that you are here. She is super talented. I’m gonna put her links all down below. I am a huge fan! [Colleen] I’m a huge fan!
[Ro] I have been watching your videos for years. She can sing. “By the way, by the way, you do things to my body…” She’s got comedy skills [Miranda] “And I don’t wha- tinkles and dingl-” Wait, ok…what are you…? What are you doing? [Ro] You have a Netflix series now…
[Colleen] Oh, stop Stop, stop! Oh, oh! If you guys haven’t seen the Netflix series, it came out last year It’s called “Haters Back Off”. That’s the name of the series. And we’re celebrating today because I heard you’re getting season two.
[Colleen] I’m so excited! Yes, we’re already writing season two, I’m so exited!! Now, today I wanted to make something from the Netflix series. Yes! I feel like the most iconic food was that really cool foot popsicle. Yes! The Froze Toes! I ate so many of these on set and they made me so sick and they tasted horrible. So I’m so excited to make one that tastes good! [Miranda] “Real good!” Today we are making one, it’s not gonna be an actual popsicle, but it is gonna be a Froze Toes cookie pop. Let’s get started! The recipe that we are making today is a vanilla almond sugar cookie recipe. And the things you will need will be: 3 cups of all purpose flour, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 3/4 cup of almond meal, 2 eggs, 2 sticks of salted butter at room temperature, 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract, 1 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon of ground nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, and an eighth teaspoon of salt. Then to decorate, you will need: Some pink gum balls, a foot shaped cookie cutter, popsicle sticks, light blue royal icing with a number 3 tip. Now let’s put it all together! The first step to making these cookies is: in a medium bowl, we’re gonna whisk together our dry ingredients. I’m gonna pour in nutmeg, boom. [Colleen] Oh, you left some in.
[Ro] Oh, uh-oh. Uh-oh. Baking powder, salt. Colleen, will you pour in the flour, and almond meal? I can do it. Oh my gosh. Success! [Ro] I just noticed your purple nails match your purple sweater!
[Colleen] I know I need- Oh, they do kind of, huh? [Colleen] Oh, look! And your, like the pink on the-
[Ro] (mouthing) Me too!
*I love fangirl Ro You have like the pinky on the kitties. We’re all matching. We match! [Colleen] I’m dumping this in!
[Ro] Pretty cool. [Ro] Then whisk together ’til well combined and then we’re gonna set it off to the side The next step is creaming together the butter and the sugar [Ro] Yeah! Just put ’em in a medium bowl
[Colleen] Plop! [Ro] And we left the butter out at room temperature so it’s soft. It’s a little sticky, but it makes it easier to cream. Then, using a hand mixer mix together until it’s light and fluffy So, now we’re going to add the eggs, one at a time But Ro, I want you to go first and I want you to teach me how to do this correctly. Ok, this is the one-handed egg crack So you go, “crack, and then twist” [Colleen] Ok, ready?
[Ro] You got this, you got this Crack, twist! Ah! I did it! Add “baker” to the list of things of talents you’ve got: One-handed egg-crack! [Colleen] I’m so impressed with myself!
[Ro] I’m like- I’m, like, really proud of you! [Ro] Here, we can rinse this off…
[Colleen] I know, I’m like covered in eggs [water running] [Ro] I found this cookie jar, I’m in love with this, at Target [Colleen] So cool! [Ro] They had a little hippo…I was in love with him If hippos were nice, I would have one as a pet. [Ro] Mix it up, mix, mix, mix, mix!
[Colleen] Mix! And add our extracts Colleen, you wanna grab those? Oh, I have never wanted to do anything more in my life. Give me a double pour, pour it in there Ready, three, two, one! Ro : Oh, yeah!
Colleen: We got some splashes on happening here! Alright girl, you can mix this up one more time! We’re doing great! This is the fun part because we’re going to put together our dry ingredients and our wet ingredients. I’m going to be mixing on a low speed and you’re gonna just slowly keep pouring in. So it’s like a little, constant waterfall [Colleen] Mmm…
[Ro] Yeah [Ro] Keep going! Oh, this is great! This is great!
[Colleen] What a beautiful waterfall! Now that our doughs ready, we’re going to chop it in half and then form it into little discs! [Colleen] Uhhg!
[Ro] Just eyeball it, doesn’t have to be perfect. [Colleen] Kinda looks like a brain [Ro] I’ll pick up one of the sides of our dough brain And then we’re just gonna shape it into a disc *Ro makes cute boop noises while slapping the dough* and then we wrap it up tight! [Ro] And I’ll come this way And you do the top, and I’ll do the other one. Now pop these in the fridge for one hour minimum. Our dough is ready to be rolled out but first, I’m gonna teach you to do a little baking flare. [Colleen] Okay.
[Ro] So I like to just pull this, and just pull it up! An-and the dough will flip and the goal is to get it to land right here. Mine’s gonna hit that camera That’s okay! One.. two, three! I did it!
