Kurabiye Fail

Oh God, just as I was starting to get used to wordpress they have changed the format. Not sure if I like this at all…

Anyway, I am in a funny mood today. I made some Kurabiyes this morning (Turkish butter biscuits). The first time I made them they came out perfectly, but I have been struggling to get the same result since. They taste fine and will do for us, but I just don’t know where I am going wrong. I did promise to share my fails with you all so here is a pic for your reference (entertainment)- please someone tell me where I am going wrong?

They taste fine, they just don’t look as pretty as I’d like and look crumbly at the top. I’ll add theĀ recipe to my recipe page as I know it can work.

So now that I’m done with the baking and have tidied up the kitchen I really don’t feel like cooking! I have days where I just don’t want to cook and today is one of those days. Am I the only one? I should really rename this blog ‘Confessions of a Lazy Turkish Housewife’. It would make more sense. Half the problem is that I don’t know what to cook today. Maybe I’ll consult one of the many cookbooks that I own and never use.

Other than my kurabiye fail I also had a facebook fail, where fb decided that my new account was suspicious and shut it down. Thanks a lot fb. I’ve opened a new account now but I don’t want to do anything with it yet until I am sure that I won’t be shut down again. Without fb I’m not sure how I am going to advertise my site. I’ll have to recruit an army of advertisers. It is at this point that being an introvert really isn’t going to help me.

I also ate three kurabiyes today, does that count as a diet fail too?
