She went back to the website and read through the comments. She discovered that others also encountered the same situation. Then an experienced baker thought that the author might have typed the recipe wrongly, instead of 25g of flour, it should be 250g of flour. After reading through this, the next morning, Puppy added 125g to the remaining dough and kneaded it until well combined. This time, it looked like a cookie dough and her confidence came back again. She baked it and the kitchen was filled with the aroma of the butter. Yeah. This cookie is not those sweet kind as the recipe requires you to sprinkle icing sugar after baking it. But we prefer it just like this. Nice twist to this baking attempt. : )
The product tasted good but it is not chewy at all. Haha. How come?? Puppy suspected that the cookies are overbaked as all the cookies have charred bottom. But she followed the oven temperature stated in the recipe leh... Maybe the oven temperature is not calibrated properly? So many maybes... New bird, opps, I mean new baker is like this one. I told her she is at her exploring stage. She will mature as a baker as time passes. Haha. Do I sound like a wise old man? Of course not. I am a wise old bear. : )

The advantage of using the Sharp's recipe is that you can follow everything in it and no need to modify the recipe to cater to the oven because this recipe is written with this oven in mind. Hee Hee. The results is great. Everyone in the family loves it. The only comment is that more walnut can be added in.
I was eyeing on the cookies when they are just freshly out of the oven. Smell soooo nice. Hahah. I am going to chop a few for myself by stamping my foot print on them. Haha.
