So… I might have sent Mr M and No 2 off to a hockey game at the wrong time today.
Like an hour earlier kind of time.
And the game is far away. And today is very cold.
I felt the need to bake cookies to atone myself with them… although if it’s true that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach… I’m not sure these are going to do the trick.
No 3 and I decided to make ‘Chocolate Crinkle Cookies’ (recipe found here), but something along the way didn’t go quite right and they don’t look quite like the picture. Not sure why. Sometimes I think that when you use British rather than American ingredients things can go a little astray. And I’ve checked other recipes and all seem to have some kind of oil in them whilst mine didn’t. The dough was very dry I guess.
We followed the recipe to the letter – we’re a very conscientious team me and him –
and great fun was had with icing sugar … (yeah….)
but our cookies stayed rather like balls… didn’t flop down into a cookie position… if you see what I mean.
And they’re a little dry.
VERY CHOCOLATEY though… so I know they’ll get eaten. With a glass of milk they will be splendid.
I might not be forgiven as quickly as I liked though..
