A Gift from my Affordable Master Baker

I followed the recipe exactly, it wasn't difficult; only three ingredients, mix until combined, bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes..... so why did hers look so soft, moist, almost cake like, and mine were...well, hard, crisp, and wrong.

So I adjusted; I added some bulk and remixed. A little better, but far from what was expected. So I changed the size, making the cookies bigger, and again a little better...but then they started to stick to the cookie sheet. Did I need to bake them longer or maybe I should adjust the temperature. Maybe I didn't let them cool long enough, or maybe I let them cool too long.

I needed a master baker. Not just any master baker, a master baker that understands my oven, my altitude and humidity. A master baker who knows what flour I use and the importance of sifting or not. One who understands my aversion to adding too much sugar, and my lack of baking equipment. Unfortunately, I knew of no such baker, and couldn't afford one if I did.

I had to smile this morning when I read this:

"For he that diligently seeketh shall find; and the mysteries of God
shall be unfolded unto them, by the Power of the Holy Ghost...." ~1Nephi 10:19

From One who knows all about where I am, my confusions and lack of equipment. It may be too late for the cookies, but a reminder of a precious gift is always timely.

"Therefore it is given to abide in you; the record of heaven; the Comforter; the peaceable things of immortal glory; the truth of all things; that which quickeneth all things, which maketh alive all things; that which knoweth all things, and hath all power according to wisdom, mercy, truth, justice, and judgment." ~Moses 6:61
