Does anybody like Snickers? You know, that milk chocolate bar filled with caramel, peanuts and nougat? I used to stash those in my office drawer and eat in times of stress.
But I have since put a stop to it as they are very sweet and loaded with calories. And then one day while shopping at Aeon, I spotted this :
Some more got special offer. So I bought two. And of course I did not work on it right away but stashed them in the fridge. Then one weekend I decided to bake some cookies using the recipe that came with the package.
Since I did not want to bake a big batch, I halved the recipe. As usual, my math is ting tong tiang and I did not halve the butter.
I also added one whole egg as it did not make sense to add half, as I did not want to be left with half an egg. I suppose I could have either left out the egg or add the half to my next omelette.
Because of the excess butter and egg, although the dough was chilled, the cookies spread very wide. And as I was trying to transfer them to the cooling rack, they broke >.<
|Please ignore the one on the lower right corner|
Only one cookie remained intact. But here's the thing. Broken or not, cookies are never really a disaster unless if you burn them. They are still edible, still very good (more butter more taste hee...hee....) and still make you happy.
In view of the leftover Snickers Baking Bites and another packet in the fridge, you bet I am going to bake these again.
