Omg Woopsie Wrong Measuring Spoon

I can't believe I did this. I am laughing 'cause there's no point in crying in the dough. After you read my delima, post your own baking booboo's.

Well, I decided to try out a Paula Deen cookie recipe - I "married" her Southern Tea Cake recipe with her Mexican Wedding Cooke recipe by adding the finely chopped pecans and will sprinkle with XXX Sugar after I take them out of the oven. The Tea Cake recipe uses 4 cups flour so I know it makes a pile of cookies, a BIG pile. So I measured and sifted the flour and baking soda and baking powder, added the butter, buttermilk, pecans and eggs; grabbed the "teaspoon" (same one that I had used for the baking soda and powder) to measure the vanilla and realized that the "teaspoon" was actually a TABLESPOON! Needless to say I went . It was either triple the recipe or toss it all. So, I now have over 10 lbs. of cookie dough to chill, roll out, cut out and bake.

Its a good thing that the recipe is good -- I baked a test cookie. Anyone for Paula Deens Southern Pecan Tea Cakes? How about an all night cookie baking party
