Baking Makes Me Angry

November 1, 2008 at 5:06 pm (food) (, , )

I have a cookie craving right now.  I have flour, sugar (white granulated, brown, and icing varieties), cocoa powder, cream of tartar, baking powder, almond & vanilla extracts, and time on my hands.  But, because you can’t fake baking, I need to find a recipe — I can’t just throw the things that sound yummy together into a bowl and end up with edible cookies.  This drives me apeshit. By the time I find a recipe that calls only for ingredients I have on hand, I’ll have given up and made the 1-1-1 peanut butter cookies.

    I’m a day late on this, but if you go to you can type in the ingredients you have and it will give you recipes that match it. Very handy!

    That’s an excellent tip … and I probably would have ended up with something better than the icky little hard poop-coloured balls that I did!
