Epic Cookie Failure

I don't have kitchen mishaps often but when I do, they are gigantic.

Tonight I decided I was baking cookies for Christmas and not the cookies that I've made every year since I could reach the knob on the oven myself, but NEW cookies. Different, pulled-off-the-interweb cookies.

HUGE mistake.


So I was trying to make these gems I saw in a blog, that come from a recipe over at Epicurious:

I thought they were so colorful and pretty.

I made the dough and put it in the fridge to chill. Wayne brushed the logs with egg wash and coated the sides in RED decorating sugar. He sliced them and put them on the cookie sheet. What came out was not pretty.

I can't help their appearance but they also were screwed up in the taste department too. Why? Because the pistachios I had in house were these awesome salt and pepper pistachios that we got at Costco. I forgot that they had garlic powder on them too. So in addition to being really ugly and pink rimmed, like some diseased cyst, they tasted off cranberry and garlic. Just sooooo not good on many levels.

I bet squirrels and birds will love them! :)

If it makes you feel any better, I once made the perfect pumpkin pie. Didn't forget or screw up a single thing... except I forgot to put in any sugar.

Oh, Juli. This sounds exactly like something I would do. I never try fancy cookie recipes because it would take me 3-4 tries to get them right.
