See, this is why you need to test recipes -- because sometimes, they don't work at all.
I tried this recipe for chocolate sugar cookies recently, as I was looking for something to make for my co-workers for Valentine's Day. And they look so darling, don't they?
ZERO LADLES! Wanna know why? Because it was a giant mound of poo. The recipe didn't work at all. Even after hours of resting in the fridge, the dough was way too sticky to roll out. I tried everything! Parchment paper, silicone mat, silicone rolling pin, flour everywhere -- nothing worked! Straight into the garbage can. Poo!
