I love all things Pinterest. Its completely addicting. I pin away all throughout the day, then when hubs gets home, I show him all the things I need him to make for the house.
I have an entire folder pinned for fall things. Adorable things. Like these presh acorn cookies that I decided to make for play group tomorrow. I got all the ingredients and got Coop all hyped up to help me.
When I started putting them together, I realized they look weird. Not like acorns. Not like the pin I had been drooling over for a couple weeks. More like flying saucers. Or those pesky mushrooms in my front yard.
I hurried over to my beloved pin and actually followed the link to the instructions. It was there I realized that you are supposed to use mini vanilla wafers. Loverly.
I almost quit and just ate the entire bag of Hershey kisses. Since I couldn’t get to the store to buy the mini ones, I just went ahead and made them. Weird and all, I guess they’re kinda cute. Not really acornish, but I learned an important lesson today.
I learned to never trust someone’s description under a pin. Don’t just look at the picture and think “oh, those look so easy!” and make your shopping list. They could have very well left the all important word “mini” from their 4 simple ingredient list. Follow the link and get the real instructions.
That is unless you really love serving weird UFO looking cookies to your neighbors.
