Well, come walk with me through a recipe I learned I don't like. (Because Pinterest has blocked the link I can't post the actual recipe. Don't worry; you won't miss it. Let's just say the amount of flour it called for should have made me suspicious.)
|Most of the ingredients. (I think all that's missing|
is the butter, sugar, and crazy amounts of flour.)
|Everything all mixed together.|
Does that look right to you?
|I had to squish the dough together between my |
palms to try and make it take cookie form.
|My finished product.|
|What they were supposed to look like.|
What I Learned:
1) Be wary of recipes that call for large amounts of dry ingredients and few wet ingredients...especially when the final product is supposed to stick together.
2) It's hard to find mint extract. Everyone wants to try and give you peppermint instead.
3) Andes Mints taste better not in a cookie.
4) It's a glorified sugar cookie.
