Homemade Oreos? I followed that link.
As I read through the recipe I noted that I had most of those ingredients. It didn't seem beyond my capabilities. Next thing I knew, I was in the kitchen going through the baking drawer in my pantry, checking to see if I did have everything.
I was a bit low on unsweetened cocoa powder (yes, I keep that on hand in case I want to make chocolate ice cream), so I needed to measure it to see if there was enough. And that started me measuring out all the ingredients into one bowl.
One thing I don't keep on hand: unsalted butter. But I had salted butter. Not the most brilliant of plans, but I was now committed.
Less than an hour later...
I ended up with about two dozen. I used up the rest of the cocoa powder, vanilla, and sugar (stuff I keep on hand, so I need to put those on my grocery list). And while they don't taste exactly like Oreos, they do taste similar.
I don't normally jump in and bake just because I see a recipe that I can make. I usually plan and plot and look for the right time to try these things. But I was bored.
See what trouble I get up to when I'm bored? What sorts of things do you do when you're bored?
