Drop it like it’s HOT.”

Remember that song? Would you pee your pants if I told you it came out ten years ago?! I know, I just peed a little, too.

This song was off the chartizzles back in 2004. I mean, who else would you trust other than Snoop Dogg to tell a woman to drop her tookus to the floor and get freaky? Oh, and that’s the actual definition according to urban dictionary. Well….sans the tookus and plus a certain word that rhymes with class.

pumpkin and bourbon

I did my fair share of tookus dropping back in the day (Did I just say that?). Sure it was all fun and games, but the fact that some day I will have to explain to my grandchildren what Nana did in 2004, is going to be a little awkward. What’s worse, they might have virtual demo dictionaries in the future. Oy-vey!


Well, it’s a good thing we don’t have to do any tookus-dropping in order to action these pumpkin chocolate bourbon drop cookies. Okay, so truth, I definitely had a hard time calling these “cookies.” They taste more like a cross between a slice of cake and muffin. Don’t get me wrong, they are super fluffy, chocolate-y, and a tad bit tipsy. But I see more opportunity for these fellows than just the standard cookie.

But for now, let’s drop it like it’s HOT and eat some cookies.

Lauren, out…my nizzle. (drops the mic.)
