So tonight I decided I'd bake up some sugar cookies, Betty Crocker cookie mix-style. I mixed up the butter, egg and cookie mix, carefully shaped them into balls and plunked them on my cookie sheet. Sounds simple, huh? Oh don't worry, I'm sure I can mess it up! :)
7-9 minutes later, this is what emerged from my horribly unevenly heated oven (can't possibly be the chef's fault after all!).
Notice if you will, the massive middle cookie. If I'd left this in the oven one minute longer, they all would have combined! And they look more like pancakes than cookies. I feel like I should flip 'em and throw some maple syrup on top.
How about a closeup on the perfectly blackened edges? That's just what I like to see on a cookie.
