What is your worst cooking mistake?
Tonight, I got all excited to bake some cookies, but the recipe I had was for a rather large batch. So I cut the recipe in 1/2 -- in my head. Usually this isn't an issue, but one too many disctractions lead me to make a batch of cookies with a full stick of butter MORE than what it should call have called for. Realizing I was in for batches of flat, thin crispy cookies, I decided to figure out the fat count -- 7grams of fat a piece!!
It was too late to adjust (i.e. add more flour, etc). A blogger suggested to turn these thin crispy cookies into frosting sandwiches. Not a bad idea, but dang, I eat 1 of these and my tummy just feels weighed down.
