Last summer I started searching for recipes online of some of my favorite cookies, etc. and baking just for fun. I guess it was probably a combination of boredom and my near-constant-need to create. Anyway, it's not like I've tried anything fancy...just your standarad chocolate chip/oatmeal raisin/snickerdoodle cookies kind of thing. But damn, they were good. I've been pretty proud of myself.
All that to say that yesterday I attempted peanut butter chocolate chip cookies to bring with me to Nac this weekend. I've made Mitch and his roommates cookies a couple times already this semester and they keep asking for more, so I was prepared to provide. I thought.
Presenting to you my very first (to date) baking disaster.
I honestly have no idea what happened. I followed the recipe exactly; no ingredients were left out, the right amounts were added in, the oven wasn't too hot...and yet...this was the result? I was pretty disappointed. And annoyed for wasting my own time. I don't even know why I bothered making more because, surprise surprise, they continued to look like the picture above. I'm dumb, obviously.
Just as I was getting ready to scrap the whole mess and put it out of my mind, my mom suggested I break it all up into small pieces and use as an ice cream topping. Genius! So that's what I did. :)
Luckily boys'll eat anything that's half-way decent and free, so when I called Mitch and told him about the change, he was just as excited. Ha. On my way to their house tonight, I think I'll stop off and buy them some vanilla ice cream so we can all try it out. Fingers crossed it's wonderful! :)
