How did I mess up cookies from a box?!


December 19, 2012 by Emily Pergament

I really don’t understand. I bought another box of gingerbread mix and I followed the instructions exactly as they’re written, and yet I could not make the dough! WTF! It was super crumbly and wasn’t making a dough. So I added more butter. It didn’t help. I added more water. It didn’t help. Anyway, I lumped the crumbly/dough-ish concoction into little balls and put them on the cookie tray. I cooked them, and they were a wreck. How is it possible that I followed the directions and it didn’t work?!

    sometimes it helps to chill the dough before you roll it out…or was it rainy or humid out? Tat can affect the texture.

    Had the cookie mix passed it’s expiration date?

    Ya have to ask yourself – “What was the Ph of the water I added to the cookie mix”?, “Wonder if the butter had radioactive waste in it”? “Could this be another Republican party attempt to ruin my life”?.
