pinterest challenge #4

This is my 4th pinterest challenge

I made lime meltaways.  They are originally from Martha Stewart, this is the original link.

Ok, so I made these tonight.  Here they are:

So, I didn’t roll them into logs. I just put the whole darn bowl in the fridge. I was anxious to make them, so I wanted them in the fridge as quickly as possible.  So, they aren’t as perfect and round as Martha’s. Also, I chose not to add the green food-coloring.

This is the first time I’ve had meltaway cookies. I really don’t like them.  It’s the corn starch that makes them have that “meltaway” feeling.  And, it’s the corn starch that I don’t like. In fact, no one in the whole house likes them. So they are going to be given away.  The lime taste is subtle, and that’s ok by me.  They aren’t super sweet. That’s ok too.  But, the corn starch – damn, it leaves some odd little after taste and I don’t like it.

So, challenge number four will go down as a fail.

  1. Such a shame you didn’t like them, ’cause dang they sure sound incredible! You’re doing a fantastic job getting your pins done!!!

  2. OH NO!!! I’m sorry that this one turned out to be a bummer for you. I’m not sure that I’ve ever used corn starch in cookies. I wonder if you could substitute some sort of combo of baking powder and baking soda? Well–hope the recipients enjoyed them more. 😉
