When Cookie Baking goes Wrong

Last evening was NAWNs Annual Cookie Exchange.  It is an event I look forward to all year.  In the past I have brought 7-layer bars.  I’m usually crazy busy and have taken the easy route.

This year, I decided to step it up a notch.  I found inspiration on Pinterest.

I decided on these darling Santa Hats.

So what could go wrong?

Yeah, not too appetizing.

I did the first batch in my mini muffin tin.  Of the 30 spots, I managed to get a dozen good ones.

My solution was to make two pans of brownies and use a round cookie cutter.

Since we moved, I can’t even guess where the cookie cutters are.

As you can see from the pictures, I tried to cut bite sized brownies.

They looked like crap.

Three dozen - done.

My plan to make buttercream frosting was also aborted.  The store bought icing was applied through a pastry bag.

Strawberries are not in season, so slim pickings.

Overall, not the best recipe for me!  But they sure are cute.

Hope your cookie experience goes better than mine!
