My streak of having incredible success with dinner recipes from Pinterest and complete failures with baked goods continues.
I came across this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bar recipe on Pinterest and was so excited. Now that Mr. C is home, I really need to pick up my baking game. I had an excuse when I lived by myself. I didn't bake because I didn't want to be eating 50 cookies or an entire cake by myself. Mr. C's mom is an amazing baker so I've got to follow in her footsteps haha.
I had all the ingredients on hand for this recipe so gave it a whirl on Saturday night. It's pretty hard to mess up, so I know I didn't screw up. It also turned out looking exactly like the above photo but something is just really off with it. I don't find it tasty at all. It's too flour-y and does not taste like cookie dough at all. Such a disappointment.
|Mid failed attempt.|
I swear, I've tried a handful of recipes from Pinterest in the desert department and have been so disappointed each time. I think I'm just going to resort to using my mom's / grandmother's recipes for now. Tried and true.
You win some, you loose some.
Have you tried any amazing desert recipes off Pinterest lately that you can GUARANTEE I'll like? ;)
