Tidbit 1 – Never eat cottage cheese and drink coffee together. Just don’t do it.

Tidbit 2 – Never underestimate Pittsburgh.

Tidbit 3 – Never pass up the opportunity to bake Dorie’s World Peace Cookies. Despite the name, I never expected this recipe to be that great. I just expected another chocolate cookie. Wrong. These are chocolate melt-in-your-mouth shortbread-like cookies. Amazing.

I don’t know why, but cookies are always the hardest thing for me to bake. I can never get them the correct shape. Sometimes they stick to the cookie sheet, throwing me into a rage. Several bakers suggested that I buy parchment paper. However, when I was in Wal Mart, I found 2 silcone mats on clearance for $7. Based on my online shopping, I knew that was a great price. I would probably spend $7 in parchment paper anyway. Plus I was helping the environment. I must say if you don’t have silcone mats, go to the store right now. You will save so much frustration. Plus mine has a ruler and little circles for cookie placement. Isn’t that awesome or what?

One problem I did have with this recipe is the dough crumbled a little too much. I think I might not have mixed the dry ingredients as much as I should have, but I was afraid of overmixing. I did manage to form the dough into blobs, so it wasn’t a total loss.
