After sitting around crafting and playing scrabble for most of the day, I felt like getting up and doing something. So I suggested to my dear Adam that we make some cookies, since we're planning on making huge batches for Christmas. We picked out a few recipes that we're interested in making, and then chose one to test out tonight - the ginger wafer recipe.
When we first started mixing the ingredients, I put in a tablespoon of ground cloves instead of ground ginger. Oops.
Luckily, Adam caught my mistake, and we started over. Those cookies would have been a disaster.
As you can see, the cookies we made (in an adorable snowman shape) didn't turn out very wafer-y. We didn't roll the dough out thin enough to achieve the crispy texture we were hoping for.
This may have been partially due to the fact that we don't own a rolling pin, so Adam and I rolled out the dough using a giant Barefoot wine bottle. It worked pretty well - although not well enough!
The cookies are very tasty, so the recipe is a success. There are just a few things we need to do differently next time. Like invest in a rolling pin.
