Maida Heatter's Cookies Cookbook Mishaps

Lisa C | Jun 10, 2002 06:40 PM

So I got this book from the library hearing that Heatter is a cookie goddess. I've made two recipes now, completely throwing out one batch. The first batch, Carrot and Honey Oatmeal cookies, were really really great. Moist and sweet like a bran muffin without the bran. But, there was a step in the instructions missing. Not a big deal, I could handle it.

The next batch, which I just threw out in total confusion, 100 % whole wheat ginger cookies. The dough was unbelieveably crumbly. I couldn't even roll it out.

Do any of you have this cookbook as well...have any of you had any issues with it? I just don't want to try any more recipes if this is going to keep happening...I want yummy cookies! If you have the book, what cookies did you love from it?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
