Finally back from Japan and have been thrown into the Christmas craziness...literally. I decided today was going to be baking day.
Attempt #1 at making sugar cookies (from scratch)...
Outcome: one giant sugar cookie. What? It got worse when I took it out of the oven too. They flattened out and were the thickness of.....a sheet of paper. ONE sheet of THIN paper.
So what does this blonde do? Calls her mom! Per my mom, "Maybe you didn't use fresh ingredients? Sometimes old ingredients can screw up the recipe."
Off to the store for more ingredients.
Attempt #2 at making sugar cookies (from scratch)...
Lesson learned: always use fresh ingredients when baking (a.k.a mom's always know best!)
