A few things that cookies and sock buns have in common:


Of course we all know that in dance it's all about the sock buns. In fact, those of us who danced with short hair just about wanted to die when we looked at our hair in the mirror after our mother's failed attempt. It is because of the short hair that I decided to make my sock bun for shorties tutorial, but that's not what sock buns and cookies have in common.
Let's start by looking at the evidence...

Exhibit A. Homemade Oatmeal Cream Pie
Cookie:
1 c. unsalted butter
3/4 c. dark brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbs. molasses
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. quick oats

Filling:
2 tsp. very hot water
1/4 tsp. salt (let dissolve in hot water)
1 (7-oz) jar marshmallow cream
1/2 c. shortening
1/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Exhibit B. The Double Sock Bun
Brush
Hair ties

Comb
Bobby Pins

Hairspray


So far, no commonalities to the untrained eye. However, this eye is not untrained.
In both exhibits A and B, we begin with basic ingredients. From there, we add the ingredients together, butter with sugars, molasses, vanilla, eggs and high pony-tail with back-combed hair and LOTS of bobby pins. We make adjustments here and there, adding the dry ingredients, baking at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10-12 minutes (until golden around the edges), and the second sock bun on top of the first.
At last, we do the finishing touches, making the cream and spreading it between cookies and pinning down any loose hairs while also including a light coat of  hairspray all around.
In the end, both turn out beautifully!
But to be perfectly honest, probably the only things these cookies and sock buns have in common are that I did them both over at Leanne's house and I got the ideas off of pinterest. What stellar ideas have you gotten from pinterest? I am looking for a new project and I just might try yours out...
