smell of my house! My sister told me that it tasted like my house smelled. I live in S. Georgia and I wonder if the humidity or something is to blame. It hasn't been too humid here lately, but I am at a loss! I know the cookies have to dry over night when you decorate them, so I leave them out. Does anyone have any ideas here to help me? TIA!!
I never leave my cookies sitting out. Just let them cool and them put in container. As long as they are cool, it is fine to put them in a box. Maybe letting them sit out is the problem.....
Thanks Cindy! I am talking about while the icing is drying out so they can be stacked. Any suggestions for that?
I don't leave my iced cookies out overnight to dry. Instead, I put them in a single layer in tupperware-like containters. I have to spread them out in a LOT of containers, but I also don't have to worry about atracting bugs (especially in rainy wather). You can also stack the containers without worrying about hurting the cookies.
I must still be half asleep...hee hee
If you have a large cookie sheet you can put the cookies in your oven to let them dry. Just remember not to turn on your oven while they are still in there.
That's really interesting to say your cookies absorbed your house smell. What does your smell like that it would absorb into cookies? That's really weird.
Hmmm, could it possibly be that the cookies haven't taken on the smell of your house... but rather, your hands? Latex gloves could be a real simple solution.
Hope your house smells like Vanilla. LOL... OK seriously, could it be your sister's imagination? I leave my cookies on the racks on my dining room table to dry and I have never encountered anything like that.
I have had cakes and cookies take on the odors of the house, when there are really strong odors. Like this summer my husband was painting with some really strong oil based paint (he was in the basement) and i had a cake that i did (thank goodness it was just for us) But yep it tasted like paint, and thats not good.
Thanks ya'll! My mom suggested I get the large containers that can be slid under your bed for storage and it works perfectly.
As for the smell in my house, we love the Glade oils that you plug in, so my hubby always has them plugged in and I think that is what she means. I think everyone's home ahas a "scent" to it. I don't mean stink or anything, but like when you walk in your mom's home and it "smells like home". Does that make sense?
