Random Comic Pick - Episode 37

My random comic pick on The Comic Conspiracy: Episode 37 is Green Lantern: Larfleeze Christmas Special written by Geoff Johns and drawn by Brett Booth. I normally don't pick up the holiday specials, but I gave this one a shot last year and I must say it was a wonderful story that is very much in the holiday spirit. Larfleeze wants everything this Christmas including Santa. Will he get his Christams wish and ruin Christmas or will the heroes stop him? You'll have to check this special out for yourself.
If you happen to be playing DC Universe Online this holiday season you are most likely playing out the story from this comic book.
There were some interesting things included in the special that are worth checking out. One of them is the recipe for Larfleeze's Orange Lantern Cookies which I think everyone should try at least once. I have yet to make these, but maybe when Brody gets older we can whip up a batch or two. Here is the page and baking instructions:


¼ cup butter (softened)
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons of orange juice concentrate (thawed)
1 teaspoon of orange zest
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 ½ cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
A dash of salt
½ cup white chocolate chunks

Step 1) Preheat your earth-oven to 350 degrees
Step 2) In a big bowl beat butter, sugar, brown sugar, orange juice concentrate and orange zest. Then add egg and vanilla until it looks delicious.
Step 3) In a small bowl stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda and dash of salt together.
Step 4) Add the small bowl to the big bowl and stir until smooth. Mix in white chocolate chunks.
Step 5) Drop small balls of dough across a greased cookie sheet.
Step 6) Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 7) Let the cookies cool as you mix the frosting

2 tablespoons orange concentrate (thawed)
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 tablespoons butter (softened)
1 ½ cups powdered sugar

Step 1) Mix all of the above until it looks like frosting!
Step 2) Spread the frosting across cooled cookies (it will melt otherwise!)

This recipe makes about two dozen cookies, enjoy!

I hope everyone has a great holiday season! (Remember to visit Calendar Man on Christmas!)
