Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Cookies - Another Disaster


Fool me once - shame on you, fool me twice - shame on me.

I've failed these cookies once and I told you, I'll fail again. Actually no one fooled me, I was simply foolish.
This time, I was determined not to repeat the same mistake. I should've learnt from it, and do it right this time. I was pretty confident. How hard can it be? Ohhhhh...boy...I was too cocky, and much too soon!

What could possibly happen this time? (Again?!!)
This time I was really careful, and kept reminding myself not to line the baking sheet with paper. As instructed in the recipe, I lightly greased the baking sheet. However...I walked away while the cookies were baking in the oven, I failed to supervise it (I walked away to "glance" at a TV program and my azz "accidentally" got planted on the sofa for far too long)....and when I checked the cookies...man, oh, man!....

They were burnt!!!

I, the smart azz, also added raisins and smell-good spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg...which were all supposedly good...if only they weren't burnt!...unfortunately, they ended up charcoal-esque and bitter. Opppps!!!

But I never gave up, I tried another batch, and I really stood in front of my oven watching them baking every single second possible....I believed I got a pair of bulging red eyes due to the minimised blinking.

Finally I got them right. They were chewy, sweet, they smell fantastic...and they look absolutely beautiful!


This kitty would've made a great witness (if it could see, smell and taste)

Holiday snap of the day...


I wonder if anyone's as lazy as me...these are cute lil' Christmas ornaments...FROM LAST YEAR, which have been hanging on my workstation all through the year ^_*

Oh no! Not again! You should have added banana to the batter to keep them moist.. and not burned. :-)

At least the disaster makes it very entertaining for us, your readers. Just don't burn down your neighborhood next time. :-)

Well, everyone could use a little Christmas cheer all year!

These look delicious. Burning happens sometimes even to the best of bakers.
