Carol’s Cookies for Dead Eats: Recipes Inspired by The Walking Dead
Ever since watching “Forget” (season 5 episode 13) I really wanted to make Carol’s cookies. Curiosity always gets me. Fortunately for you and I, there’s a recipe over on the AMC website. I’m going to be eating a few these tonight while I watch the season premier.
I love the show so very much because we get to see the surface of the charactars, like a first impression, and then dive a little deeper into the past. I feel like we’re given their story and left to decide for ourselves what with think of each charactar.
Zombie movies have always caught my eye, along with anything in the fantasy and sci-fi genres, but this isn’t just any ‘ole zombie show.
I was not a fan of any tv show before this one, in fact I was sort of against the idea of waiting for new episodes of anything. Until I started watching The Walking Dead. It all began on Netflix as I plowed through a couple seasons in a short period of time. You know how that goes. The team behind the show does a killer job of telling the story and drawing me in. After I was hooked, my other half followed. And my step son. And several friends. My brother too.
One of the reasons I enjoy Melissa McBride in this show so much is because Carol and I have had similar circumstances so she seems very real to me. When Andrea stuck up for her at the lake, I cringed. When Carol’s husband was out of the picture I smiled. And when the group finally found Sophia I cried. That was a powerful episode. Yeah I’m probably being a little emotional about the whole thing but that’s part of what makes it worth watching, isn’t it?
Plus the zombies are out-of-this-world! If I could I would be a walker on the show I’d beg the makeup artist to make part of my zombie face hang off me as if I were literally falling apart. Wouldn’t that be awesome?! I’d look so scary in my zombie getup, definitely a great addition to a walker herd.
If you’re a diehard fan and you’d like to make a batch of Carol’s cookies, click here for the recipe. I made these cookies with shortening and Kim made hers with butter, which I recommend. You can take a peek at her cookies here. In my opinion the cookies with butter have a richer flavor. I’ve made them both ways.
