Choc Oat Hazelnut Cookies
I baked some ordinary cookies this afternoon. But in this household, even if your cookies are crap they will be eaten, and the first half of the batch looked like this ->
before the second half was even out of the oven.
I made these cookies a few weeks ago and they were really good, so the scribbled down recipe was stuck on the fridge and that's what I worked off today. Just by looking at the recipe I expected it to be too dry, and instead of doing my usual fix everything trick of adding milk (and what I probably did last time), I went looking on the computer for the recipe, couldn't find it, and ended up adding more flour and another egg. I knew this was stupid as soon as I did it.
The cookies aren't actually bad, but they're disappointing, and not up to my usual standard. They're a bit eggy (funny that), and not as sweet as they should be. The only other problem really is that they're just kind of... ugly.
