2. Greek honey crunch creams the wrong way.
Yes. Very disappointing, especially since I had been wanting to make these for about a year! Ok, so I completely forgot to use self-rising flour, but I wasn't expecting flat pancake cookies. These are flavored with honey and are supposed to have a hint of orange zest in them, but even though I used the correct amount of zest, it completely overpowered the color and taste. So I ended up with flat, bitter orange cookies that were oozing with honey slime because there wasn't enough flour to soak it up. I obviously didn't make the filling...
And these are cranberry orange cookies from The Biscuit Pusher. They also weren't as good as I was expecting, but the orange zest and dried cranberries were great together. And at least they baked right!
I made both of these cookies the same day as the Chai tea; three food disappointments in one day!
