Over- Cook(i)ed

Last Saturday I was super bored, beyond bored. Living in a house that usually resembles Grand Central Station, everyone was either out of the house for the day. Aside from walking the terriers, I had no company, wa waaah! I know this should have been the opportunity to study and make good use of the day, but with an assignment due the night before I was burnt out! My brain was fried so the only thing I could do which didn't require much thought was bake. I borrowed this recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod, minus the caramel and with mini chips instead of regular. I was too tired to adapt a recipe and when this one had baking soda which I thought was a nice addition and wondered how it would turn out!

Now, this would have been good if my tired, tired mind took note of their recommended cooking time... 10 minutes. However, as the cookies still looked pale and flattened when I touched them. The cupcake-baker in me quickly snapped the door shut and left them in for another TEN minutes. BIG mistake! So the lesson here is, follow the instructions when it comes to cookies! :) Still, they weren't that bad... Just a tad crunchy! Think Hagrid's Rock Cakes! I joke I was the only person who seemed to care about them being hard, everyone else just dipped them into tea! Where there's a will, there's a way!

Lesson learned! Here are some cute photos of the cookies anyways, a feast for the eyes!

Don't forget to tune into UCC98.3fm tomorrow for the Mother's Day edition of sUCCulent! 

Until then,
Stay sweet! x
