“These go to eleven.“
Nigel Tufnel: The numbers all go to eleven. Look, right across the board, eleven, eleven, eleven and…
Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. And most amps go up to ten?
Nigel Tufnel: Exactly.
Marty DiBergi: Does that mean it’s louder? Is it any louder?
Nigel Tufnel: Well, it’s one louder, isn’t it? It’s not ten. You see, most blokes, you know, will be playing at ten. You’re on ten here, all the way up, all the way up, all the way up, you’re on ten on your guitar. Where can you go from there? Where?
Marty DiBergi: I don’t know.
Nigel Tufnel: Nowhere. Exactly. What we do is, if we need that extra push over the cliff, you know what we do?
Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.
Nigel Tufnel: Eleven. Exactly. One louder.
Marty DiBergi: Why don’t you just make ten louder and make ten be the top number and make that a little louder?
Nigel Tufnel: [pause] These go to eleven.
…please welcome The Nigel Tufnel’s Amp Of Baking. The Ginger Snap That Goes To 11. Please put your hands together & make some noise for the Hottest Cookie In The Land…
makes about 2 dozen
1 cup canola oil
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar, divided
1/3 cup molasses
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking soda
1 tablespoon ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground clove
3 tablespoons gochujang
Preheat oven to 350°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpats.
Cream together the canola oil, brown sugar, and 3/4 cup of white sugar in a large bowl. Add in the molasses and egg and mix until well blended. Don’t worry if it looks a little wet and oily at this point, the dry ingredients will take care of that.
Add the flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and clove and mix to combine.
Add the gochujang in dollops over the dough and mix in like ribbons.
Let the dough rest for 10 minutes.
Place the remaining 1/4 cup of white sugar in a bowl. Using a 2-tablespoon measure, portion the cookie dough into balls, roll them in the sugar and place 2” apart on your prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes until golden brown.
