Pinstrosity: The Hunt For the Perfect Sugar Cookie

If you have Pinterest, I'm sure you can relate to this...

You find a pin that goes back to a blog

The blogger boasts about how AMAZING their recipe is

You try it out

It tastes like Cardboard?

There I said it.....


If you write about how amazing, and truly delicious a new recipe is to you, I WILL try it!

Lately I have been on the prowl for the PERFECT sugar cookie. 

The cookie needs to be able to maintain shape and taste GOOD

Sugar Cookies Like You Remember

I found this recipe by Midwest living boasting to be DELICIOUS

Well, I spent 3 hours Baking these suckers, only to finally taste one and be Disappointed!!!!

How hard is it to be honest about recipes?

Why do pinners pin things with the caption, BEST COOKIES EVER if the recipe tastes so, so so PLAIN

Anyways, I'm going to try this one next:

sour cream cookies

Just ANOTHER blogger boasting to have the BEST COOKIES EVER!

Typically, I'm going to trust them again!

Has Pinterest ever let you down?

  1. Not made these in YEARS, but I remember eating plenty... tasted good hopefully? Lol I'm sure they are way plain and not what you want but I'll share anyway. Haha
    Easy Sugar Cookies
    2-3/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 sp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 cup butter, softened
    1-1/2 cups white sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Preheat oven to 375. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
    In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
    Bake 8-10 minutes in preheated oven or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to cook on wire racks.

  2. Wow, fabulous cookies! I'm going to have a really great time with my daughter making these!

  3. Superb blog you have here but I was wanting to know if you knew of any discussion boards that
    cover the same topics talked about in this article? I'd really like to be a part of group where I can get opinions from other experienced individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks a lot!

  4. I haven't checked Pinterest for recipes before - good idea!


  5. I've never tried a recipe off Pintrest. I have yet to find a good cookie recipe to follow ... but since I'm no longer baking sweets, it'll have to be left in someone else's hands :)
