So, let's say that the instructions claim that a half of package, plus one egg and 2 tablespoons of butter, will make 30 cookies. Each cookie will be made by dropping a rounded tablespoon onto the cookie sheet.
And, assuming that a bit of the batter stays in the bowl, and a small amount on the spoon, and a few smidges on your fingers, and maybe your husband walks into the room and eats a teeny bit even though that is against house rules (salmonella! Hello!), and also the egg was of medium size and not large. All in all, that has maybe wasted one to one and half end result cookies.
So why do I only have 24 cookies?
Where did the other four to four and a half cookies go?
These are not big cookies. They are much smaller than storebought cookies. And yet, I have less cookies than claimed on the package.
And that sucks. Hard.
And that, my dear friends, is my little rant for the evening.
