For Everyone I Unintentionally Intimidated This Year, I Have a Holiday Gift For You

Here it is:

Baking Disaster

Apparently I’m only capable of showing proficiency at one home making skill at a time. At the present moment that would be sewing. Tune in next week to see if I remember how to make the one recipe I have memorized and can usually do in my sleep. Not so tonight.

I hear occasionally that I intimidate people. I laugh in their general direction because they have not seen the current state of stackage in my dining room right now. They don’t know how much laundry I need to wash. They have no idea how long it’s been since I’ve mopped the kitchen. Trust me when I say this: I’m the LAST person you should be intimidated by. Still, it happens on occasion. And for those people I offer this tangible proof of my imperfection, this photo of my very flat cookies.

It seems I was too impatient to let the butter soften. I saw the chunks of butter in the batter when I was scooping the cookies out and thought, “hmmm, wonder if those will go flat?” Experiment completed. They do.

I just wanted to put everyone at ease tonight. I only do one thing well at a time.

    Those look delisch to me. Next time add a little more flour…I always err on the side of too much rather than too little…and Matthew prefers a fluffy cakey biscuit. It took my a while to figure out why he wouldn’t eat my flat cookies (the way I prefer them), then one day I had a mixup on doubling or tripling a recipe and vundabah he gobbled up three in passing.
