1st attempt at cookies

13 May 2007

Obviously, this is an unsuccessful attempt at baking cookies. I overbake the cookies as you can see from the photo.

1. not sure how to see when the baking is done,
2. the heating in the oven seems to be uneven, like one side brown faster than the other.
3. Cheap oven haha... Maybe I set a lower temperature or put on higher rack next time.

Besides that, the taste is not bad.


  1. hey, this happens to me during my first few attempts to bake cookies too...just that I didn't take any photos then as I started blogging much later ;p
    It takes a while to "understand" your oven. My oven has got hotspots too...I get around by turning the tray around so that most of the cookies will be evenly browned.

  2. Hehe, if you have noticed, I have not baked any cookies after this attempt. :p I will definitely take your advice the next time I bake cookies again. :)

  3. hi, I've learnt that unless you are interested to attend a cooking/baking class, the only way to learn/improve your baking skill is to try and try and try ;)
    Looking forward to seeing your new bakes!
