I haven't been a total slacker with our Cookie of the Week. It is just that the cookies really haven't turned out that well.
This was last weeks cookie. Well, you know last, last week's cookie. Still wanting to make only slice and bakes, I used a recipe over on Smitten Kitchen. I added dried cranberries, and sprinkled them with powdered sugar. The problem was, that this was all I got out of that batch. I was reading blogs, and totally ignored the timer. Twice. They were delicious, and perfect with coffee. It's a shame my kids don't drink coffee. :)
And this week, I made whole wheat peanut butter slices. Twice. Both times the dough was so dry that when I tried to cut it, it just crumbled into little pieces. Which resulted in odd shaped cookies.
It didn't stop the kids from eating them. But it was totally aggravating. I am going to try to tweak the recipe. If I get it right, I will let you know.
