Ew, gross. Cookies that look like fingers… enough like fingers, in fact, that I was fooled on first glance.
Now, to be fair, the blog post instructs you to use a from-scratch sugar cookie recipe. I am lazy, so I used a roll of refrigerated dough, but the caption on the pin promised me that it would work.
Lesson learned: Always believe the blog post over the pin caption.
All began well enough. I carefully shaped the cookies and scored them where the knuckles would be, agonizing over how many score-marks would make the most realistic knuckle.
And then they came out of the oven and I realized no amount of effort mattered at all.
And then I realized I was going to need help photographing the rest of this blog post, so I drafted Mr. Pintester.
The good news? They were tasty. And most people still knew what they were, even though they were flattened beyond recognition to my eyes.
