a turd load of cookies

If you’ve ever wondered what 20 dozen cookies looks like, feast your eyes on this:


{the tupperwares are full of non-iced cookies}

Yes, Mom Bedke and I made 20 dozen cookies.

No, not really on purpose.

It’s actually pretty funny – Ryan’s sister had called Grandma Bedke for her marshmallow cookie recipe a couple months back. Turns out Addie had written down 1 and 1/2 cups instead of one 1/2 cup. Do you see where this is going? So Mom Bedke and I decide to double the batch. So we put 3 cups of shortening in {thinking we were doubling the 1 and 1/2 cups of shortening it called for}. However, based on the actual recipe which calls for one 1/2 cup shortening, we had 6x the shortening. Oh dear! Needless to say we had to 6x most of the other ingredients to catch it up to the ridiculous amount of shortening we had added.

Turns out when you 6x a recipe, you get a real turd load of cookies!
