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

Send some my way Cindy...tea cakes are my all time fav cookie and the combination of those two recipes sounds delish. We know what the mailman, vet, drs, hairdresser etc. will be getting from you for Christmas

lol...Cindy...you can send a cookie to me They do sound delicious.

Believe it or not, I've done something very similar with baking soda, but not the salt. I copied a Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookie recipe from my MIL's card. I always use a capital "T" for tablespoon, and small "t" for tsp, when abbreviating recipes. Apparently my MIL, didn't use the same abbreviations consistently. What I thought was 2 tablespoons of baking soda, and powder was....(you guessed it)...supposed to be 2 teaspoons. I didn't realize it until after the cookies were baked One of my first hints should have been the cookies puffed up in the oven like no other cookie I've ever baked! They really didn't taste all that bad though

Hey a tablespoon of vanilla, there could be worse things happen!

I'm not a baker. Even if I follow the recipe, I always second guess the recipe. That looks too wet, or too dry, I'm gonna add another egg, or more water... well guess what it always ends up in disaster. No I don't bake anymore.

Something about baking, it's just too scientific. I'll stick to regular cooking.

You forgot the best part... more to EAT!

My Mom turned me on to a Cranberry-Orange Quickbread that she made into cookies... Yum! I bought the package and rushed home to make some, mixed it all together but gosh it was runny. I just shook my head and stuck the whole mess in the oven, thinking well maybe they will dry out some.... Lol. Not happening! So I ring her up and ask what's up, what did I do wrong? I got the wrong brand.... it was a 7 oz box... the brand she used was an 11 oz box! Not even remotely edible, lol! Scraped and poured it off the cookie sheet into the trash!

lol... I have done worst!!! And your "mistake" was a sweet one and so yummy!!

I teach food production and every year I could tell stories of the silly things the kids do. But the very worst was a "liver" stew I made in error...

That's me too. I love to cook (and do pretty well) but HATE to bake. It gets me tense, having to measure so precisely, and remembering if that's salt or baking soda I just added to the flour....Ugh.

My family tells of a time my Father-in-law made apple crisp. They say the house smelled sooooo good and they were all excited when the apple crisp was ready to eat. The servings were perfect and mouth watering with vanilla ice cream on top and then they took a bite and realized he had accidentally used salt instead of sugar. All that wonderful smelling apple crisp had to be thrown out.

You may have more yummy cookies than you planned but that's not too bad. You can always store some cookies away in the freezer or give away some plates of cookies as gifts. 10 lbs of cookie dough is certainly some serious dough. Too fun about the vanilla measurement but at least it was fixable and you can laugh at the whoops.

Default Update --

I have used a little over 1/3 of the dough :-). Sent cookies to work with hubby and son! Sent cookies to MIL and neighbor!

I am going to make a cookie tray for my vet and for the neighbors we are close with. I have some other recipes that I want to try, so I'll be a cooking baking whiz next week! LOL

Default Cindy, I thought of you yesterday...

when I used hot cocoa mix instead of cocoa thinking it was cocoa.

I made choclate Reese's cookies & the recipe calls for 3/4 cup cocoa. Silly me didn't realize that dd had hot cocoa in the cannister on the counter until after I'd already dumped it into the other ingredients. It all turned out ok though & dd was simply amazed the cookies were made with cocoa mix.

Betcha you have no cookies left now huh?!

So my mother makes the best banana bread in the world. Well finally when I got my own place she gave me the recipe. I made 2 so proudly, and well I pulled them out of the oven to find two black bricks in my bread pans. I cried on the kitchen floor for about an hour.

I called mom and she forgot to put baking power or soda (both are in there, one was forgotten) on the recipe, so it didn't rise.

It has since taken me 2 years and about 5 terrible breads and 4 mediocre ones later before I mastered it last month. lol. It was an expensive learning curve. Thank god her rolls weren't as hard to learn how to make.
