Sometimes it just doesn’t turn out – Shortbread fail

I wanted to share one of my fails with you today because it’s just real life as I see it.  Not everything turns out perfect all the time, at least not for me.  I have begun my looming task of sifting  through my haphazardly stored hand written recipes and saw one for shortbread  I just don’t remember but it was in my handwriting.  I suspected right off the bat that there was something not quite right about it.  It required vegetable oil instead of butter.  Oh well,  I tried it anyway.  It looked okay although I do not have the correct size pan but found one that was similar.  See they look okay, they are quite flaky and do melt in your mouth ….

That is where the problem came, what an awful taste!! OMG  where did I get this recipe? Or did I write it down incorrectly?  I honestly don’t remember, I have so many!

I happily tossed this piece of paper in the recycling.  From now on, I think I will stick with shortbread recipes that require butter.

Does anyone else have a recipe fail they would like to share?  I would love to know that I’m not the only one this happens to!  🙂

I enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my life here on this blog; whether cooking or baking up some delicious recipe, a little travel or just sitting down to have the occasional chat with you over a fresh steaming cup of coffee (and a homemade cookie, of course! ;-)

  1. Hi Sis! A couple of times I’ve used baking soda instead of baking powder. Oh, you can tell right away! Whatever I’ve made doesn’t look right, is a little dense, and then the first bite taste salty! I can’t remember anything else at the moment, but I’m sure I’ve had fails! Have a great day! ❤

    1. Hi! I guess that would turn out a bit differently! I have had quite a few fails over the years too and have even resorted to trashing dinner and ordering a pizza. (at the Kids suggestions 😉 ) Thanks so much for sharing! x
