SOS Baking Disaster

Querencia | Dec 14, 2008 10:45 AM

Yesterday, doing too many things at the same time, I realized that I had used powdered sugar instead of flour in my old recipe for black walnut butterscotch icebox cookies. I tried adding the flour anyway and doing them as drop cookies. They came out sort of meringue-y but not bad, terribly sweet though, so I melted some bittersweet chocolate and put them together as sandwiches thinking that the not-sweet chocolate would counter the sweet. I thought the rescue would be complete if I kept them overnight in a sealed jar with a slice of apple so they wouldn't get too hard but, no dice----today I don't think a beaver or a gerbil could bite into them. Thus now I have a considerable investment of ingredients (half a pound of expensive black walnuts and 3/4 lb of chocolate plus other stuff) so I hate to take them to the park and donate them to the squirrels. I wonder if I could pulverize these rock-hard cookies, soak them in Myers' rum, and do something with them. Any ideas?
