'Rewrapped' recap: That's the way the cookie crumbles

Season 1 | Episode 6 | “Let’s Get Ready to Crumble!” | Aired May 19, 2014

It’s Goldilocks day on the newest episode of Rewrapped, as three contestants try to recreate Entenmann’s famous chocolate chip cookies. Jesse’s cookies are too big, Shauna’s are too small, and Chris’s are just right. All three contestants, including husbands Jesse and Chris of New Jersey’s Sugarush bakery, take completely different approaches to the classically soft cookie, using piping, rolling and steaming during the 30 minute “recreate” round. Shauna, an author and food blogger, bakes hers with shortening and butter, while Chris uses cream cheese and Jesse gets controversial with vanilla instant pudding mix.

Jenny McCoy is back to judge this round, joining head judge Marc Summers and Maureen Sticco, Entenmann’s director of marketing. It’s great to have Jenny back, giving host Joey Fatone a run for his money with baking puns and “What the fluff?!” exclamations.

None of the contestants are spot-on with their cookie recreations, but it’s hard to be perfect when you’re competing against machine-made cookies that have exactly 18 chocolate chips apiece. Chris has the toughest job when his cookies come out flat and messy with less than 15 minutes to go. He quickly whips up a new batch, this time using cold cream cheese instead of warm.

Judging begins, and it’s off to a rough start with Shauna’s too-small and too-crispy cookies. The color is off but the taste is good, so the judges give her 17 out of 30. Up next is Jesse, who didn’t use enough chips and got the color all wrong. But they seem to taste great, and the judges give him 19 points. Chris is the winner of round 1, with good texture, good appearance and a score of 23.

On to round 2, where Chris goes savory, Shauna goes sweet and Jesse tries for a little of both. By far the weirdest food combination we’ve seen on Rewrapped so far is Jesse’s home fries, which had him crumbling chocolate chip cookies straight onto partially fried potatoes. It’s a technique that doesn’t work so well, because his cookie bacon quiche with home fries only scores 14 out of 30 points with the judges. “That’s the way the cookie crumbles!” proclaims Joey Fatone, as the judges move on to Shauna’s dish.

Shauna’s cookie sponge cake and milk semifreddo is a cute play on milk and cookies, but turning a cookie into a cake isn’t all that original, so she scores only 21 out of 30. The most surprising part of Shauna’s dish is that her semifreddo turned out OK after only having 15 minutes to set!

The last contestant to present his dish is Chris, and it’s clearly a home run. His presentation is great, and he managed to incorporate cookies into every part of the savory meatball sandwich without making anything too sweet. He only needs 18 points to win, but he scores 26 and goes home with a year’s supply of Entenmann’s chocolate chip cookies! It’s really a win for two contestants, since both Chris and his husband, Jesse, get to enjoy the grand prize this time.

Next week on Rewrapped, it’s back to salty snacks with the Utz Pretzel Rod! What has been your favorite snack recreation so far?

Rewrapped airs on Mondays at 8/7 C on Food Network.
