customizable by the illustrious Jessica Repetto. Plus, find out what unexpected food combination Christina thinks everyone should try at least once.
Sofia Cavallo: What's a Mexican wedding cookie?
Christina Tosi: It's a ball of nutty shortbread doused in confectioner's sugar that's usually seen around the holidays or for special occasions and celebrations.
SC: How did you and Scott decide on doing a version of this cookie for FNO?
CT: We figured it would be a great fit in the carnival theme of FNO this year, and they happen to be one of Scott's favorite cookies!
SC: We're no strangers to the distinctive Tosi touch. What twist on the Mexican wedding cookie can we expect from your FNO interpretation?
CT: We're stuffing our favorite nuts in the mix – peanut butter and toasted, ground pecans. There will be no shortage of sugar or salt in our Mexican wedding cookie, either.
SC: C is for cookie, and we're bound to believe that's good enough for you. What are your other favorite things that start with the letter C?
CT: Cake batter, calculus, canoeing, cardigans, cartwheels.
SC: What's your favorite snack in the whole world?
CT: Depends if I'm in a sweet or salty mood. I love cookie dough (nearly any kind) or a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos or Sour Cream & Onion chips and a can of coke. I snack like I'm a 16-year old.
SC: Is there a food combination that you think everyone should try at least once?
CT: Breakfast sausage and ranch dressing.
SC: Finally, what would be your last meal on death row?
CT: I think it would have to be a buttery grilled cheese and tomato soup affair.
