that blasted finger of mine kept scooping dough off the beater and heading right toward my "pie hole". I had absolutely no control over it! It's really sort of embarrassing. I usually nab a few bits of cookie dough here and there as I am baking cookies, but this was obscene! I can't believe I actually ended up with enough cookies for a plate to leave at home and a plate for church. Well, you know when mom starts digging into the dough that makes it hard to say no to the kiddos...Cece also played a major part in the disappearing dough.
Ree had a disclaimer in her cookbook that these do not travel well because they are very delicate and crumbly. Which is true, but they made it just fine to my Jr. high friends. I would say be careful, as with any cookie NOT to over bake. Take them out before they look done, if you think "aaah maybe they should stay in another minute and get a tad bit browner..well then STOP right there and take the cookies out of the oven. Let them finish baking on the cookie sheet as they cool. Unless, of course, you like nearly burned cookies(like my dad), then disregard everything I just said in the last two sentences.
This is getting boring, I know...we gave these a thumbs up. Every single dad-burned person liked these cookies. Pioneer Woman strikes again! You are probably hoping for a recipe disaster. Waiting for one of P-Dubs recipes to just stink. It would add a bit a excitement to my blog wouldn't it.
Yeah, well stay tuned for my next post "You can't judge a pie by its crust!". The original title that my oldest daughter thought appropriate was "Epic Disaster"...whoa now that was a bit dramatic so we will stick with the first title.
