It appears my cookie plague has worsened. I don’t think cookie dough is supposed to be all crumbly…
The good news is the dough tastes delicious, the bad news is it doesn’t want to stick together.I’m reliving my lemon bar crust issues! In this case though, I think I might have over mixed it. In my defense the recipe is worded strangely; when it says to add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients it says to use an electric hand mixer and ”beat until well blended”, but in the same paragraph, when it says to add the flour it only states to “mix until blended”. I think I shouldn’t have used the electric mixer for the flour… but I can’t be sure.
I made two batches and tossed the rest of the dough. Not worth fighting with it. Surprisingly, even with the crumbly dough, the cookies didn’t fall apart! But then again they hardly spread in the oven at all… at least they didn’t turn out flat!
The cookies have great flavor, so it is definitely worth trying this recipe again.
And next time I’ll just spray the pan instead of using wax paper… my kitchen is still all smoky. Woops.
