I was so looking forward to this recipe:
I made it this morning, but since I didn't think 36 cookies would be enough, I made 1.5 times the recipe.
I just sliced the shortbread and baked it. I've got a total of 30 cookies. They are hideous looking, and only about 20 of them have actually stayed in one piece. Most have broken or are just little midget cookies.
The cookies all taste good, but I don't understand why the calculation was so off. If anything my cookies are smaller than what the recipe called for, not bigger.
Now I'm frantically trying to find a new appetizer recipe for the party we are going to tonight. Thankfully it doesn't start until 9 but I'm not looking forward to the store right now.
The last party I went to with this crowd I brought my beautiful star cookies in my blog, so I have a reputation to maintain.
