I am so glad these are yummy, because it was quite an ordeal to make them.
This story is for those of you who think it was an effortless baking session.
So I melted the butter. Check.
Wait, it said unsalted.
Then I went to get the light brown sugar.
There was only dark.
I freaked out a little.
But I made an adjustment and proceeded.
Then vanilla extract.
There’s no more. Well, a drop or so.
Seriously, could I really be having a vanilla extract emergency?? Yes.
So I freaked out some more.
Once I got myself back together, I did some modifications and hoped for the best…
They were crunchy on the outside and oh so soft in the middle.
And oh so good.
Disaster averted and a new bar created.
