What Happens When Men Bake (Butterscotch Cookies)

:: Five minutes before ANTM is starting ::

Keith: Honey, I really really want some cookies, like some Chips Ahoy, but don't feel like going to the store.
Me: We have stuff to make them but my show is about to start.
Keith: I'll make them myself.
Lindsay: OK, here's the recipe.

:: I take out all the ingredients, including 2 sticks of butter ::

Keith: Oh my god, TWO sticks of butter?! That's so bad for you!!
Me: They're cookies..... they're not good for you.
Keith: Isn't there some way we can only use one stick?
Me: No.

:: A few minutes later ::

Keith: We only have a little bit of brown sugar left, so I'll just substitute the rest for plain sugar.
Me: OK, if you say so.

:: I go into the kitchen and see Keith dumping flour/sugar/etc. in the bowl without measuring ::

Me: Sweetheart, why aren't you measuring anything?
Keith: Oh whatever, it's close enough.

:: I hear the microwave turn on from the couch ::

Keith: The butter isn't soft enough.
Me: Too late, you already started mixing it with everything else.
Keith: That's okay, I just put the whole bowl in the microwave.

And now you see why the wife should always be around to facilitate baking! I have to admit that the cookies taste pretty good, although very sugary. But they look horrible, like pancakes that are falling apart!! Men......

PS ~ Keith "followed" the recipe from Venice's blog, and butterscotch chips were used instead of chocolate b/c we were out of chocolate.

That's awesome. Luckily, my husband is a baker, too. He's messy, but makes good stuff.
