Hi everyone. My name is Daniel Sample, but I go by Spaz or Sample. For the past three years of Pax south, I have stopped in the cookie brigade room and asked if they needed any help. Then just donate and keep moving. This year I stopped in and asked, and was placed to work. It made this years pax extra special. I was sticking labels on cookies, sniffing bags to figure out what fudge was what fudge, and running around distributing cookies. It was an awesome time and would like to do it again for pax 2020. My wife, Katie, was talking about making vegan cookies for 2020 as well.

Hi everyone - my name is Stef. I stumbled on the Brigade while doing research for PAX East, and I absolutely love the idea. My grandfather was a culinary professor, and he inspired a love of baking (and cooking) in my brother and I. We plan on applying for both distributors and bakers.

It's great to find a forum for people interested in both games and baking  ;)  I'm looking forward to meeting the community.

Also - a bit off topic, but my brother and I are also into cosplay - we would love to distribute cookies in costume  ;D

Hey there,
I made a little test for PAX East. Normal short crust cookies, except they are decorated with lemon frosting!
Recipe Talk / "Scotch Eggs"
« Last post by cavecibum on December 11, 2018, 05:32:11 PM »
Someone on Twitter was interested in my "recipe" for fake Scotch eggs, which isn't so much a recipe as a technique. You can buy the mini creme eggs online, but they're available in stores before Easter.

1 box Cadbury mini creme eggs (they come 12 to a box, in a little thing that looks like an egg carton)
3 Tbsp butter
1 10-oz bag mini marshmallows
6 cups rice krispies

At least an hour before making the rice krispie treats, unwrap each of the mini eggs, place back into carton, and place in freezer (so they won't melt when you put the hot rice krispie treat around it).

In a large pot, melt butter and marshmallows. When fully melted, remove from heat and mix in the rice krispies until combined.

Spray hands liberally with baking spray, then scoop out enough rice mixture to fit in your hand. Place one mini egg in the center and form the rice around it. Shape into an egg or oval shape. Press firmly to make sure everything sticks together. Keep spraying your hands between each one because otherwise things will get very sticky!

Thank you! I adore this cookies so much! Was there a particular shortbread recipe you used? They had a nice consistency - sandy but not overly crumbly.
