(I'm feeling very photo oriented today so I'm sure there will be pictures later.. unless I fuck them up)
In the recipe you are instructed to ice half the cookie using an "offset spatula"
There are many kinds of spatulas... I thought I'd heard of them all.
I was picturing some sort of very very weird icing spatula
Don't know what an icing spatula looks like?
So... I asked my mom what the hell an offset spatula was.
She, instead of answering me, smirked and started out to the kitchen.
"oh my god... you actually have one."
and she just continued going through drawers until she found it.
She also has a lemon zester , a nutmeg grater, a garnish toolkit, and a ginger grater.
