Ro: Hey guys, it’s Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies!
Ro: Look who it is!? A special guest it’s Merideth!
Merideth: Hey guys!
Ro: I’m so excited you guys! I adore this girl.
Merideth: Oh!
Ro: I love all of her content, I’m gonna
put a link down below to her channel.
Merideth: Wait, you’re so cute! Aw!
Ro: And, you guys, this is also gonna be a
first time we make something from
Ro: Percy Jackson, because I got so many requests
from you guys to make something
Ro: from the movie. So that is exactly what we’re gonna be doing today.
Merideth: I’m excited!
Ro: Today, we’re gonna be making those cute
little Lotus Cookies that you see
Ro: in the movie that his team eats, and they
kind of get stuck at the Lotus Casino.
Ro: Because these magical little cookies kind
of get you disoriented you lose track
Ro: of time. Merideth: So they’re eating them?
Merideth: Yeah, mmmm-mmmmm.
Ro: They’ve totally forgotten their mission.
Both: Let’s get started!
Ro: The recipe that we’re gonna be making
today is a rose flavored vegan shortbread
Ro: cookie recipe.
Ro: And, they didn’t have any lotus flavors,
so we’re gonna
Ro: go with a different flower.
Ro: A rose. Merideth: Oh!
Ro: Close enough!
Ro: The things you will need will be: 3-1/2
cup of all purpose flour,
Ro: 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of
kosher salt, 2 teaspoons of rose water,
Ro: 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Merideth: 1-1/2 cups of vegan butter, a 2
inch round cookie cutter,
Merideth: vegan buttercream that we dyed bright
pink, with a number 366 tip.
Both: Now let’s put it all together!
Ro: The first thing that we’re gonna do
whisk together our salt and flour.
Ro: So I’m gonna pour it in, Merideth, you
mix it up.
Merideth: Oooh, OK.
Merideth: This is easy, I’ve got this!
Ro: You’ve got this, step 1, done!
Merideth: So now that we’ve set that off
to the side, what are we gonna do next?
Ro: This is usually where we would cream together
our butter and sugar, but,
Ro: because we’re using vegan butter and
powdered sugar… Merideth: Right.
Ro: We’re just gonna mix them together until
they’re really smooth.
Merideth: Awesoome.
Ro: So I’m gonna pour them in here.
Merideth: And we’ve got the nice handheld
mixer. You can take them off at the
Merideth: end and lick the batter off, that’s
my favorite part.
Ro: Yeah! Merideth: Oh, so good!
Ro: She’s gonna be a pro!
Ro: You’re just gonna mix together until
it’s nice and smooth.
Merideth: Oh yes!
Ro: Now we’re gonna pour in our rose water
and vanilla extract.
Both: Cheers!
Ro: Let’s do a double pour, we got this!
Ro: Now we’re gonna mix it up one more time!
Ro: I’ll put this up, for a splash guard!
Merideth: So we’ve got our butter mixture… Ro: Mmmhmmm!
Merideth: and our flour mixture. Ro: Mmmhmmm.
Merideth: Now it is time to combine them,
mix them all together.
Ro: Yes! They’re gonna be friends!
Ro: Here they go, you’re gonna put all of
your dry in. Merideth: Yes!
Ro: You got this, slowest speed, slowest speed!
Merideth: Slowest speed….
Merideth: Oh yes!
Ro: Nice! Merideth: Got it!
Ro: She’s gonna be a great baker!
Merideth: I’m confident about this now. Ro: Yeah!
Merideth: I feel like I can go home and just
bake my little heart out.
Merideth: I think our cookie dough is looking
pretty good!
Ro: Mmmhmmm!
Merideth: So what are we gonna do with it
Ro: Now we’re gonna divide it into two halves,
and wrap them up tight in some plastic wrap
Ro: and pop them in the fridge to chill.
Ro: Yours is way cuter than mine!
Merideth: This one turned out well! Ro: I can….
Merideth: So our dough is done chilling, it’s
cooled off. Ro: Mmmhmmm.
Merideth: It’s much harder now… Ro: Mmmhmm.
Merideth: So what are we gonna do with it?
Ro: I’m gonna show you how to do some baking
Merideth: Ooooh!
Ro: Most of the time this works….
Merideth: I’m ready. Ro: So you grab this.
Merideth: Ok. Ro: And you’re just gonna pull it up in
the air.
Merideth: Oooooh! I saw that going!
Ro: Ooops!
Ro: Just go for it…
Ro: And usually it flips and lands here.
Ro: Not again!
Ro: And if it doesn’t I’ll hit it into
Ro: You got this, you got this!
Merideth: OK, whew!
Ro: I have a heart attack every time…
Ro: 1, 2, 3, baking flair!
Ro: Yes! Merideth: I did it!
Ro: You did it girl! You did it!
Merideth: I thought it was gonna go that way
or that way, we did it!
Merideth: We did it guys! Ro: Didn’t even need this!
Ro: Now, just gonna take a pinch of
flour and sprinkle it on top of
Ro: the work surface so that our dough doesn’t
Ro: Roll it out to be about 1/4 inch thick.
Merideth: This is an arm workout, I’m ready!
Ro: You didn’t know this is also a fitness
Merideth: We got the guns!
Ro: It’s those rolling pins!
Ro: Now, using our circle cookie cutter, we’re
gonna cut out a bunch of
Ro: cookies into the dough.
Ro: We’re then gonna transfer them over here
onto a
Ro: baking sheet I’ve got lined with a piece
of parchment paper so they don’t stick.
Merideth: Our cookies are ready to bake, we’re
gonna preheat the oven to
Merideth: 325 degrees and bake them for 12
Ro: This is my favorite part of baking, I
love decorating, and the decoration
Ro: today is super easy, I would say it’s
easy mode.
Merideth: Yep.
Ro: Just have a steady hand.
Merideth: Mmmmhmmm.
Ro: All we’re gonna be using to decorate
is our vegan buttercream frosting
Ro: that we’ve dyed pink and I put it into
a plastic baggie with a number 366.
Ro: They don’t have a lotus flower tip,
and I thought this was most similar.
Merideth: Yeah.
Ro: So what you’re gonna do to pipe a lotus
flower design on the top of our
Ro: little cookies, is we’re gonna hold
it at the edge, and it kind of looks
Ro: like he’s about to take a bite.
Ro: Ah-mah-mah-mah-mah-mah-mah-mah-mah!
Ro: Give me that cookie!
Ro: But we’re just gonna hold it over the
top and we’re just gonna press down.
Ro: Just go 1, 2 and pull up.
And we’re gonna do that all the way around,
Ro: try to get 8.
Merideth: Oooh, yours are looking good!
Ro: Right on girl!
Merideth: Yes! Ro: Look at her!
Ro: Then we do the 6 on the inside, I’m
gonna line my tip up right between
Ro: where each of the leaves connect.
Ro: To get the hang of piping, it may take
a few tries, so your first
Ro: couple cookies could be test cookies…
Ro: That you’ll just have to eat!
Ro: Then I’m gonna do 3 little ones in the
Ro: They’re gonna be tilted more vertical,
like they’re going up.
Merideth: Yours looks great, my next one will
be better.
Ro: No yours is cute!
Merideth: It just doesn’t look like a lotus
Merideth: Like what is that!?
Ro: Your leaves are beautiful!
Merideth: They look good, but, that’s the
right way.
Ro: Then we’re gonna do this to the rest
of our cookies, ’til they’re all done!
Merideth: Oh yes!
Ro: Look at that petal!
Merideth: Oh yes!
Ro: She did it! Merideth: Did it!
Ro: 8 big petals, they look amazing!
Ro: Boom!
Ro: Oh no, I did my petals too big!
Ro: Uh-oh, he’s gonna have one really big
Merideth: How have you not gotten frosting
on your hands? How did I do that?
Ro: Wait, how, what are you doing?
Merideth: I don’t know!
Merideth: Oh my god, that one looks good!
Ro: It’s the first one I counted correctly!
Both: Ta-da!
Ro: Here are the Lotus Flower Cookies that
we made today, from the movie Percy Jackson.
Ro: A big thank you to you guys for suggesting
this, and, a big thank you to Merideth!
Merideth: Aw, thanks Ro!
Ro: For helping me bake today!
Merideth: Well thanks for having me, these
turned out so well, they’re so cute
Merideth: and I can’t wait to try one because
they look really good!

  1. OMG! Ro you and Meredith should do more together! Meredith you nailed that Bizzardvard episode! That was my fav episode!

  2. This is surprising I used to watch you since I was like 8 or 9, I loved the cakes and cupcakes. But finding out that you could still be here making this and even Percy Jackson makes me so happy. Love you💞

  3. I wonder how you make the flowers, though. Cause in the movie the flowers don’t have cookies under them, so maybe they’re tempered chocolate or something?

  4. Things you should have made instead:
    Leo's tofu burgers,
    Piper's PB & J,
    Literally anything blue food,
    ambrosia squares and nectar. ​(for mortals)
    The list goes on.

  5. There is going to be a new book and its going to be when they are mid adults like in thier 20s bu they are still the same except leo goes solo and somewhere in the middle of the new series they meet again

  6. Idc that im comenting now cause i see this alot cause i want ti make these for my b-day but i just wanna say that alot of pjo/percy jackson and the Olympian fans would not like that u talked about the movies

  7. Omg this helped me bc in my social studies class we watched the movie and we have a feast day where we can bring in anything Greek food related since the movie and out unit in ancient Greece so now I know what I am going to bring


  9. Please please please make Percy Jackson blue chocolate chip cookies!! If you’ve read the books you’d know what I mean. The movies are soo different, and to most people who are fans of the books, they changed way to much. There is no blue food in the movies, although it is a big part in the books, especially the cookies. There is also no lotus flower in the books. Please make the cookies!!

  10. You guys realize these have nothing to do with pjo right? Unless you mean the movie AND U BETTER NOT MEAN THE MOVIE it’s the worst thing I’ve ever seen

  11. Can you make Sally's famous Blur cookies. I made a batch of the cookies and they turned out amazing!

  12. Ok. All you PJO fans please. Comment on rosannas newest videos and request she makes either blue cookies or anything else thats related to the bks. If we band together this can happen

  13. Who here is a fan of Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Heroes of Olympus, and Trials of Apollo?! Plus Magnus Chase, Kane Chronicles!

  14. I love Percy Jackson it is my favorite book series but …THE MOViES SUCK! They are nothing like the books so I was like whaaaaaaaaaaat? when Ro said the movie. Ro why just why.

  15. She should of made blue cookies or a blue cake so it actually related. The cookies were a random thing made up by the bad writers of the movies.. Or ambrosia lemon bars because ambrosia was described as like bars

    Percy Jackson
    The hunger games
    The house with the clock in it’s walls
    Harry Potter
    Twilight (though I’ve never read the book or saw the movie/ that’s what I’ve been told)
    And every other book that has a movie that exists

  17. Me: Sees video
    Me:Yes!! Percy Jackson themed food. Finally!!!!!!
    Me: Watches video
    Me: Why must the world be so dam dumb
