Improving my Cookies.

I made a post on February 14th (Valentine’s day) about making sugar cookies, but I didn’t explain the three flaws that occurred after baking.  First flaw I noticed without even tasting the cookie, was that it felt like a rock.  I baked it for too long and it got too crispy.  Second, I observed that 3 cookies were dry.  I didn’t mix the batter well enough and since I made that mistake myself, I ate the dry ones.  Last flaw I saw was that I didn’t use a cup for them, so they were all different sizes.

I looked at the ingredients and it called for 1 stick of butter and 1 egg.  We only had half a stick of butter and no eggs, so I looked up how to replace those things.  I found out that you could replace butter and eggs with Greek yoghurt, we had Greek yoghurt, then I had to look up how much of yogurt can replace a whole stick of butter and one egg.  I ended up replacing a whole stick of butter with 1/2 a cup of Greek yoghurt.  Then I had to put more yoghurt in replacement for the egg.  I ended up uses almost a full cup of yogurt for my recipe.

This time I chose to mix the batter more throughly, use a cup to make them all about the same size and to check the cookies after a few minutes.  They baked for 10 minutes, after 10 minutes I let them cool.  Then I took a 1/8 measuring spoon and dabbed each cookie with honey and I put brown sugar on half of them.

I hope to make more things other than cookies later on, but for now, I plan on perfecting my cookies before moving on to cupcakes or cake.

  1. When I was a little girl, I think I was around 6, I decided to surprise my mom with some homemade cookies. I did not understand measurements. I just knew the recipe called for salt, flour, etc. I had seen my mom bake cookies before so I just imitated what I had seen her do and would use measuring spoons and cups for the ingredients. Needless to say the cookies were burnt plus I had put like a cup of salt in them. Not sure where my mom was when I was doing all this. Let’s just say she was not a happy camper when she came in the kitchen.
