First post: A new cookie recipe

First post. Obviously. I was going to wait til February 1st, but I made a new recipe today so it's just as well, eh?

I got the recipe from Bakerella, which was via Martha Stewart. It didn't work for the first batch. They're yummy but I can't figure out how to bake them without messing something. Two batches done, more dough left in the fridge. I think I'll do that tomorrow.

This was my result. Chocolate crackle cookies. Kind of brownie like but lighter. If they didn't annoy me through the baking process I'd have liked them a lot more. 

I'll try the rest tomorrow. I'm going with my mother's advice and trying half of them on a greased sheet, and the other half on parchment paper again. It may work, as I'm going to make sure they're smaller. Gooey chocolate cookies are not so fun. 

Here's hoping I keep it up! A mix of style & fashion, cooking & baking, photography and anything else that appeals to me. I'm planning on joining Project 52 at the beginning of next month, so I'll have some others to catch up on and post within the next two days. I think that's fair. I'll keep up with the weekly photo once I have the others done. I know I could just start here, but I have to do them all. It would kill me not to. 

Til next time!
