Ro: Hey guys, welcome to another Nerdy Nummies! Ro: Today I have a special guest, Jared! Jared:
What’s up guys! Ro: Yes, he is a freelance writer and he works
a lot with TGS, He’s very funny, so I will put Ro: his link below, definitely go check him
out. Ro: He’s a pretty cool guy! And, you guys
might recognize him from the Ro: livestream, this is Frodo! And since Frodo
and Sam, us Hobbits-es Ro: are hanging out today, I thought, let’s
make something from Ro: Lord of the Rings. Jared: Lembas! Ro: Lembas Bread! Elven bread, AKA, shortbread!
Let’s get started! Jared: So what we’ve got here, a bit of
flour, a little bit of sugar, some Jared: butter, and lemon. Ro: Boom, ingredients! Jared: Boom! Ro: Boom! Tools, pokey lollipop
stick, if you don’t have 1 of Ro: these you can use a toothpick. Cookie
cutter, square. Jared: Very important. Ro: Big bowl, mixing, let’s put all that
together and make some elf magic! Jared: Do this! Ro: Yeah! Bringing Middle
Earth to your kitchen! Jared: Boom! Ro: First we add the butter. Jared: Peschew!
Ro: Pfft! Ro: So you, you’re gonna do a cup of butter,
so each stick of these is 1/2 a cup. Jared: So you need one 1/2 cup sugar. Ro:
Yep. Jared: Ah, the kind of sugar that we just
love out in Hobbiton, if you ever Jared: get out there. I highly recommend it. Ro: I’ve never been there, the Shire’s
so big. Jared: It’s really not. Ro: There’s so many different, like, towns.
Jared: It’s towns, uh provinces. Ro: I don’t go there a lot. Jared: Hobbit
Provinces, so yeah you left Jared: awhile ago. Things have changed. Ro:
My mom’s an elf, so like, still Ro: the height of a hobbit, but… Jared:
First generation hobbit. Ro: Yeah, I’m learning, Ro: Now we need, 1 tablespoon of Lemon Zest,
I don’t know what lemon zest is, Ro: so… Jared: It’s the zest. Ro: I bought
a lemon… Jared: Inherent in each lemon. Ro:
And we’re just, we’re gonna… Ro: We’re just gonna make it zesty, with this! Jared: That’s 1, 1 zest to rule them all! Ro: We could have googled it, but I feel like
I don’t want to! Jared: No, alright. Ro: No, no, we’ll just… Um… Jared: How do you, how do you zest a lemon? Ro: Someone told me it’s the outside. Jared: Oh you have to scrape, that’s the
zest. Ro: Who wants to eat that, is that delicious? Jared: Dude this is magical bread, you just
gotta to go with it. Ro: Now we’re gonna do 2-1/2 cups of flour. Ro: There we go, there we go. Jared: Into the bowl, like that! Ro: And then we just mix it all together! Ro: This is what you want! Jared: Oooh! Ro: So you want it to be all crumbly, like
this, and then, what keeps it Ro: together, is you’re gonna take a handful,
OK ready? Ro: And, use your muscles, and push it together.
Jared: My muscle? Ro: To make it whole. Jared: Well I have a
lot of it, so this is gonna be Jared: real easy! Ro: Nice. Jared: Yeah, I’ve been doing Hobbit
workouts. Ro: Yeah, us Hobbits-es. Jared: P-90H… Ro:
Us Hobbits-es are buff! Jared: Are, are they? Is it the Hobbit Warriors? Ro: I feel like we’re buff enough to bake.
Jared: Brave, brave hobbit warriors. Jared: Dude, I’ve been in some battles.
Ro: Yeah? Jared: Yeah, I took out like, like an orc,
like a goblin once, they’re, Jared: they’re frisky man, they’re squirrelly.
Ro: I believe it. Jared: Alright so now what you’re gonna
want to do, take this, cut out Jared: little squares. Ro: Then I’m gonna
gently place them on the cookie sheet. Ro: You do not need to grease the cookie sheet,
you can just stick ‘em Ro: right on there. On the un-greased cookie
sheet. Jared: You’re gonna not want to have them
in this pattern, because they’ll Jared: get all stuck together, but uh… Ro:
But we’re magic… Jared: Yeah, we’re, we’re magic. Ro: So, we can
do it, but you might want to leave Ro: a little more space. Jared: We’re enchanted
middle earth hobbits, OK? Jared: Now we’re gonna put our fancy elf
X’s right here. Ro: Yeah! Jared: Ah yeah! Ro: Perfect, using the lollipop
stick, and remember, if you Ro: don’t have a lollipop stick, you can
use a toothpick. Jared: So now that you have your X’s, on
your way bread. What you’re Jared: gonna do is, uh, heat your oven to
325, bake these for 20 minutes. Jared: And then magic bread. Ro: Yum-yum-yum-yum-yum! Jared: Hobbit style. Both: Boom! Ro: Fist bumps for magical… Jared: Beings.
Magical people, beings! Ro: And while these are in the oven, we are
gonna prepare the leaves, Ro: in case you have a long journey, and you
need to wrap them up. Ro: So what I did, I cut out this shape, into
a piece of paper, the, Ro: the 3 leaves are identical size, the bottom
1 is just a little smaller. Ro: And then I folded them on the crease,
to fold them in 1/2 each way, Ro: like that, and then to get the little
leaf marks, I just first followed Ro: the line, go like this. Er-ber-ber-ber-ber-ber! Ro: Follow the 1/2 way fold crease line, and
draw the little leaf creases Ro: going out. Boop, boop! Easy-peasy! Ro: Ta-da! Ro: They’re done, they’re all ready, and
they’ve cooled, make sure they Ro: have plenty of time to cool before you
wrap them. Ro: Then we’re gonna take the leaf. Here,
you take a leaf, I’ll take a leaf. Ro: Take 2, and then fold the bottom. Jared:
OK, fold the bottom… Yes Ro: Then the right, then the left. Both: Then
the top! Jared: Aw snap! Ro: Oh, look how cute that
looks! Oh! Perfect! Ro: And then we’re gonna take the twine… Raffia…. Ro: And, just tie it around the middle. Both: Ta-da! Ro: Doo-doo-doo-doo! Both: Doo-doo-doo! Ro: We did it! We made elven bread! Jared:
I made way bread! Ro: Eeee! Cheers! Jared: Oooh, damn. Ro: Which is really shortbread.
And if you don’t like Ro: shortbread for any reason, you can always
make sugar cookies and just cut them Ro: out as squares, so that they’re cookies.
But I like shortbread. Ro: We made it with wheat bread. Jared: It’s more true to the ancient. Ro:
Mmmhmm. Jared: Thousands of years old recipe. Jared: Cookies… Whatever. Ro: Yeah! Ro: Thanks you guys for watching, um, again, I’ll put a link down below Ro: to Jared’s Twitter! Go check him out,
he is awesome. And if you have Ro: and other suggestions for any other Nerdy
Nummies, please let me know, Ro: leave me a comment and I will do my best
to make it happen! Ro: Thanks you guys, bye-bye!
