I had picked out 3 recipes I wanted to try. Jetty picked up the groceries on Tuesday, and I got started last night.
Everything I need for baking! Bottle of wine optional ;)
So the first thing I wanted to try was these Sugary Citrus Twists. I thought they look so pretty in the picture! *Spoiler: Mine didn't turn out like that.*
When I tried to roll the dough it just kept falling apart...
And falling apart...
It said on the recipe "If it falls apart just push it back together." HA I could barely roll it without it falling into a bunch of pieces, let alone twist it...let alone "push it back together".
I'm a determined person though, and when Jetty said, "Just make it into balls." I was like "No way! This is happening!"
I managed to make about a dozen that looked moderately like the picture. In the same way that a five year old painting the Mona Lisa would look like the original.
There you have them all cooked and finished. they actually do taste really good still.
The rest ended up looking like this:
Crumbly round cookies. that taste delicious but look disappointing.
Let's hope that the next recipe turns out better!
Any tips on why my recipe might have failed? Do you think that maybe I mixed it too much? I'm not sure I will try it again, but just in case, or in case it will help for other recipes - let me know!
