Weird cookies

I mixed these up yesterday and baked them today:

http://www.home-ec101.com/sweets-for-the-season-orange-chocolate-checker-cookies-from-meredith/

1) The dough wasn't amazingly appealing raw (which seemed weird?)

2) The smell of them baking was kinda strange, and not in a good way.

3) They taste good. But kinda mellow.

WHAT?!?

I don't know how 1+2=3 in this case. But whatever. I don't think they will become a new family tradition or anything (unless maybe I add 1 tsp of orange extract instead of the orange zest - or actually use orange zest instead of Clementine? could that be it?), but I have a feeling they will disappear pretty quickly.

Now I just have 2 more kinds of cookies to make before Christmas eve. I better get chopping (literally!!!) and mixing and baking. :-)


Also, my camera battery is dead, but after it's charged up I'll take a picture of my cookies. And probably end up with a cookie icon before the 24th. :-)

Also-also, sillyliss, I discovered my camera battery was dead when I pulled it out of my purse to take a picture of the kosher section in our local grocery store. There were a ton of boxes of candles on the shelf next to the big boxes of matzos. :-P Move to Harrisburg!!!! :-D

I know, right? o.O Crazy cookies don't know their math. I better go off to edumacate them. Or eat them. Or both.

Maybe 1 and 2 cancelled each other out?

I am not surprised that it's easy to find Chanukah candles in the Northeast. I actually would expect to find them in all small cities and bigger. But I'm happy with the ones we found at TJ Maxx. They are really pretty. I have pictures to prove it. :)

Take care of your camera battery!

That's really weird how those cookies came out. It's not even like it's a weird recipe or anything.

*headdesk* the butter I took out first was salted - THAT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING! But the cookies turned out fine, so I guess no harm done. I'm tempted to make a second batch with unsalted to compare. :-P

Catherine, totally unrelated but I got your Christmas card BACK in the mail this morning. Apparently a machine somewhere between my house and yours ate your address off, so they sent it back to me. With one of those apology cards.

Christmas Card FAIL.

You know, that happens a lot when people try to send me stuff. I must be cursed.
