Edible Art: Princess Buttercups

Kitchen Overlord - Princess Buttercups Illustrated Recipe

These buttercup cookies are the perfect cure for when your tastebuds are mostly dead.

Princess Buttercups

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
48 miniature peanut butter cups, unwrapped
48 candy crowns or crown cupcake picks

How to make them? Let me ‘splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.

We begin with the mawage of butter and sugar, that cream within a cream, wherein the two are mixed with vanilla and eggs to create a batter you will tweasure.

Mix in flour, baking soda, salt, and today’s pinch of iocane powder as you build up your resistance to poison.

Butter a mini-muffin tin until it’s as greasy as a R.O.U.S. Add 1 tbsp batter to each cup.

Find a 350F corner of the fire swamp and leave the cookies there for 8 minutes.

Retrieve them from the flames and press an unwrapped mini peanut butter cup into the middle of each cookie. It should be level with the batter.

The chocolate coating makes it go down easier. But you have to bake it another 3 minutes for full potency.

Let the buttercups cool completely before removing from the pan. Otherwise they’ll stick. I just want you to feel you’re doing well. I hate for people to die embarrassed.

Garnish each buttercup with a candy crown or crown shaped cupcake pick.

They’re the greatest thing in the world, except for true love, well, true love and a nice MLT – mutton, lettuce and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They’re so perky, I love that.

  • Haaaa! I LOVE this! I am such a huge fan of The Princess Bride (I never get sick of it). My friends and I are planning on having a huge nerdy bake-off soon… I know there are already Dalek and Tardis cookies in the mix, alongside some sort of Chewbacca cake. These’ll be perfect!

  • WANT!

    I am going to have to give this a try. I wish I still had my roleplaying group, these would be a hit!

    I had a nerdgasm when I saw this posted! Yay! I was so happy to see it, especially after requesting something like it on the contest board. Lucky me you had something in the works and I didn’t have to edit long at all. 🙂 I’m making these four my birthday party next weekend. (Btw, sent you my address. Still super excited!)

  • Brilliant. So creative and they sound delish. But some chocolate coating could make them go DOWN easier. Love it.
