Chocolate-Bourbon Orange Toasted Pecan Cookie - Recipe Help!

Terry H.

Bad Product

Terry H.

Multiple batches had grease spots so I switched meringue powders, only to find CK very grainy (literally pulling grains of sugar out of the tip!). I also tried several different recipes, etc. I finally found LilaLoa's survey on butter bleed and followed her solution: which is, fans. I laid the cookies out to dry with 3 - 4 fans blowing in the room. (Also because my...Read More...

I have this problem at the farmer's market stall. I had exactly the same issues; steam in the bag, cookies rock hard and dried out. I...
