Cookie Flop!

Can you even guess what I attempted here? Wonder what those little seeping pools of liquid can be? l”ll tell you this, those seeping pools are also responsible for the sunken holes you see.

Failed Rockie Road Cookies!

The culprit: marshmallows. The cookie:  Rocky Road. Yeah, not so much, right?

This might be my best fail, E-V-E-R. I completely brain faded. Marshmallows are more than 70% sugar, of course they will  melt at high heat. As for the taste (based on what I could scrape up), um, I missed the mark on that one as well.

So off the heels of all that self congratulatory back patting in the Coffee Cake recipe, I was pretty much humbled by these not so great tasting and ugly babies.

    I learned from Mrs Fields that you need to freeze the marshmellows before cooking them in your cookies. Try again.

      Robyn-Thanks so much for the tip! I’m going to try that!

    I feel your pain! I decided I was a cookie genius and tried to create an oatmeal butterscotch coconut cookie… the taste was good, but they were so flat and completely fell apart. However, I’ve decided to embrace the failure – they’re currently a bag of crumbs in my freezer, and will become the foundation for what I hope is a wonderful no-bake pie crust for a holiday pie this fall! :)

    Coffee is a brewed beverage with a distinct aroma and flavor, prepared from the roasted seeds of the Coffea plant. The seeds are found in coffee “berries”, which grow on trees cultivated in over 70 countries, primarily in equatorial Latin America, Southeast Asia, India and Africa. Green (unroasted) coffee is one of the most traded agricultural commodities in the world.`
