This Sunday's SMS recipe, chosen by Nina of Nina's Cupcakes, was a lil on the odd side to me. It's a pie crust recipe that you can use to make sugar cookies. As you all know by now, i HATE making "dough" recipes, i.e., pie crusts or any recipe that calls for rolling dough. After contemplating for a week and reviewing the P&Q's of SMS, I decided to go ahead and make these. I did what many others suggested: increase the sugar, the zest, and add lemon juice. I also increased the vanilla extract and added some almond extract.
Well... it didnt work out for me. After refrigerating my dough OVERNIGHT, I set out to roll it this morning. It was too wet and sticky and I couldnt get it to roll properly. No matter how much more flour I added to the rolling pin and dough... it just stuck everywhere.
Sorry, Nina, but I tried. I really HATE working with dough now and I have no idea if I'm going to ever get over it... seeing how we're suppose to make a pie in two weeks. BOO!
