Last night I got the hair-brained brilliant idea to make monster cookies. I had been browsing through Pioneer Woman’s website and saw the recipe and was inspired. I had most of the ingredients at home, the kids were spending the night with Greg’s parents & Greg was studying for his final.
Perfect! What could possibly go wrong?
Well, it’s funny you should ask.
This is what they were supposed to look like:
Warm. Gooey. Delicious. Fluffy.
And here is what mine looked like:
Flat. Hole-y. Chewy. Bleh.
Also? Even though it looks like a small child’s hand that is, in fact my fat, stubby little hand.
Please continue to love me despite the fact that I have carnie hands.
Please? I will give you some of my gross tasty cookies if you promise.
Last night as Greg was trying to study and I was pouting about my kitchen disaster, he finally caved & ate one. We were discussing why the cookies turned out so flat and it hit me. I left out the oats. I remember thinking that there wasn’t too much flour in them but I though, meh. It’s Pioneer Woman! She wouldn’t lead me astray.
I just can’t read.
I brought a ton of them into work today and everybody said they didn’t taste as bad as I let on. So, I guess that’s a win, right?
Now, who wants some cookies?!
