And this is why I don’t bake… I tried to make these Apple Pie Cookies and it was a disaster.
So where did I go wrong? Perhaps my first mistake was not reading the directions in detail before I began. When I cook something new, I usually skim the recipe and then make it my own. Apparently you cannot do this with baking. There is a reason someone takes the time to write out a step-by-step recipe with exact measurements of each ingredient.
Next mistake: I don’t know how to make a lattice pattern on a pie, nevermind cookies.
The above photo should have looked like this….
I knew that there was no way I would be able to use a cookie cutter on the hot mess that I made, so I decided to bake the whole thing. And that was a bad decision. I should’ve thrown in the towel and fed what I had to the birds. I baked the “Apple Pie Sheet” for 25 minutes and it was soggy, so I baked it for another 15 minutes, and it was still soggy. So I let it cool and cut a piece. ….
Did I mention I opted to not use the caramel sauce? That ingredient should never have been eliminated because the ‘cookie’ was dry and bland.
Apple Pie Cookie = FAIL
