On Monday when I was home for lunch I threw together batter for coffee-cinnamon cookies. I made it ahead of time because it said the batter was runny and need to chill for a couple hours to stay together. Sounded good.
I didn't have the maple syrup needed so I substituted with honey. And I didn't have enough honey left in the open jar and I didn't feel like opening the new jar of honey I had just bought at the farmers' market. I figured the amount of honey would would be ok since I prefer not-too-sweet cookies. I thought about tasting the batter to see if it was sweet enough, but I was grossed out by the raw egg so I skipped it. The batter was really dry, completely opposite of the way the recipe was described. I thought it might hydrate a bit as it sat.
Baking It UpWhen it came time to make the cookies, we had to search all over the living room to find the cookie scoop. It's one of Sonny D's favorite things to play with right now. We found it inside a big metal cookie tin. The dough was really stiff so we flattened the balls and hoped they would spread in the oven.
