I had never worked with store bought sugar cookie dough and it totally threw me… But on the second try the “denture donuts” became a cute Halloween treat!
Kay, seriously such an embarrassing moment on TV, “denture donuts”… at least that’s what I tried to spin my failed cookies from the second episode of Food Networks Halloween Baking Championship as!
Seriously so bad!
Thankfully it was just the preheat, and the judges liked my donuts. Too bad they were fried and not baked! GAH!
Anyway the final challenge went much much MUCH better (but I’ll post that tomorrow)
SO it’s time to redeem myself, well in a small way.
SOOOO using the SAME store bought doughs (GAG) I decided to make them again with the same parameters, but this time I knew a little bit more about the dough I was working with.
It’s not really made to hold its shape, so you have to work WITH the spread, and let the frosting be the details you need.
Now of course you CAN work with actual homemade donuts and homemade sugar cookies for a tastier, prettier, monster.
But this was fast, easy, and fit the challenge. NEXT TIME I’ll rock it!
Hopefully there will BE a next time, right?
