Home for the Holidays

So it all started when we had a great idea of making these cookies from a blog recipe, called Ugly Cookies. They looked and sounded super good on the blog... Made of grahm crackers, carmel, chocolate and walnuts..we decided to go for it.
However, in the midst of cooking them for too long we failed.
After a quick run to the store to get more butter, and a long discussion in the dairy isle as to what the difference between salted and unsalted butter was, I finally allowed my brain to snap back into school mode and decided that salted has salt in it and unsalted doesn't... Lacey had a good laugh at me :P
And back to the cookie story... My mom (note it was just her this time) remade them while we watched and chiseled or scraped...the burnt ones off of the cookie sheet.
And the moral of this bonding time of making cookies (Since there always has to be a moral) was...
If there were never burnt cookies in life..how would you know the difference between the bad and good ones? :P
The End.
