Cookies That Failed

Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

2 cups M&M's

Instructions


PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in M&M's. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

About 1/2-inch cookie dough place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

Well I guess I did something wrong? I am thinking I used to much butter. Cookies don't look anything like you buy in a store. I will try again sometime soon.

    I have my mum's recipe for Anzac biscuits, it is absolutely fool proof for her! Whenever I make them though, they turn into a giant, burnt pancake on my baking tray.
    I have no idea what I do differently, we have even made them together but mine always fail.
    I have since learnt that if I roll them into balls, don't flatten them and put them in the fridge before baking, they work!
    Perhaps this trick might work for you too, but looks aside, I'm sure they taste great :)

    They may not be store-bought pretty, but I'll bet they're still yummy.
