New kind of low calorie cookies


After successfully making an enchilada casserole, I tried to bake some cookies, but couldn’t remember the proper temperature so I guessed. The cookies burned. I could tell by the acrid smell of smoke coming from the direction of the kitchen. Also, I was not aware that parchment paper would burn let alone catch on fire. So you know, there’s that lesson learned. I have surmised from this experience that 425 is too hot for parchment paper, and cookies apparently. In other news…I found a liquified cucumber in the back of my fridge. I threw it away, but I’m eating these cookies, at least the ones that weren’t near the flame. Those are not quite charcoal yet and I heard that burnt food has less caloric content so, you know, I can have two for the price of one….never mind the extra carcinogens.
