possibly against my better judgment, today i decided to tackle a cookie recipe that infuriated me, nay, nearly unhinged me, last month.
have you ever read a recipe and looked at the accompanying picture and thought, “awesome, no problem, i got this.”
and the universe laughs.
and you cry.
i have the first “second attempt” batch in the oven right now. the problem before was completely unmanageable dough. it stuck to everything. and i mean everything. i tried metal spoons, plastic spoons, and my hands. i think i actually threw the dough away after baking one batch.
yes, it is in the refrigerator. yes, it was in the refrigerator for over an hour before i tried to scoop it. and still? it was a bit uncooperative.
i have already burned my middle finger on the inside of a 325 degree oven. want to see? just kidding.
and does anyone on god’s green earth know how to get the degree symbol to show up here?
