Do You Know What Happens When You Get Too Much Butter In The Cookie Mix?

They flatten out like a giant pancake.  :)

And the ones in the middle don't get done.  But the outside edges are quite crispy.  Can you say "fried"? I don't like raw cookie dough but those outside edges were quite tasty.  Ask me how I know.  I tried to eat my way around the outside so....the ladies in my quilt guild will be a few cookies short tomorrow night.

And someone should tell Paula Deen that despite her opinion, you can sometimes get a little too much butter.

lol Oh no Marlene I would say bake a few more batches or maybe you could do the get some store brought and fix them up to look homemade. I truly know the feeling on this I have had that happen to me before, I tried to camouflage mines with some butter cream icing. So I agree Paula needs to know that there are times you can have too much Butter! Have a wonderful evening my friend
Peace and Blessings
Cheryl...Snatch JOY~!

Well if I were there I would help you eat those up. I love cookies... soft or crispy... it doesn't matter to me.

I just got a phone message from you yesterday but my cell phone didn't tell me when you left it. My cell often delivers my messages to me days after they were left... I am sorry that I missed your call. I listened to your message twice because I just love hearing your voice. Welcome back home. I hope that all of your yard work didn't wear you out too much. Just thinking about it makes me tired... but then breathing makes me tired these days..lol.

Have a great week sweet friend. I am sending you hugs, Lura

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You would know the cookies would fail since you were supposed to take them to your quilt guild. If they were destined for Jerry, they would have turned out perfect!
BUTTER Luck next Time!!

That explains my first attempt at chocolate chip cookies. They looked just like your except with chips. I was about 10 and my mom took a picture of them with me and my friend. Good memories. Thanks for the laugh.

Snoodles said...

That has happened to me oh, so many times, and it always seems to be when company is coming, or I have to take the cookies to a potluck! LOL
Better luck with the next batch...bet the edges did taste good!
