Don't through it out!!! ACK!! (If this is the start of business, you need to learn to control wastage)

That dough can still be used for something. If not the cookies, you can still bake it in a tart tin for tarts - or bake it all, pulse it in a food processor and use as an alternative to graham crackers in cheesecakes. So many alternatives...

I'm with you girlfriend. My first thought was a nice fruit pizza crust! I never throw anything out!

All stale bread, crackers, chips and unsweetened cereal gets tossed into the food processor here and turned into crumbs and tossed into the freezer. I use them for countless things and never have to buy crumbs! Just one of my thrifty things!

I'm a hawk when it comes to watching the bottom line.

Ok well right before the site went down for maint... I ran out and grabbed the STILL WRAPPED AND BAGGED dough from the EMPTY trash bag and put it into a fresh clean bag and put it back in the freezer.

I had to run to the pharmacy and now I'm back... I went and made a whole new batch for the cookies, adding the 2 tsp of vanilla to the egg before adding it to the mix so I knew it was there! lol. It smells sooooooooooooooooooooo good!!!! lol. It didn't smell like that before lmfao duh! cause I forgot the vanilla lmao.

Anyway I wanted to thank you all for your advise! And Brandi please continue... what can I use this possibly icky tasting dough for now???

It's got:

2 sticks salted butter
1-cup sugar
1 large egg, plus 1 yolk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

in it.... so what can I use that for? lol. Recipes are welcome! lol

Roll it thin and bake it in a pie dish like a crust, add in pudding and whip cream and you have yourself a yummy pie with a cookie crust. =) Trust me it shouldn't taste yucky, especially if you add frosting with some extra vanilla in it if you want to make them into cookies for your family. Like Laura I think it was said, you can make them into tarts, cook them up and then make crumbs out of them for a crumb crust later on. Let your kids make their own cookies out of it, since it isn't for anything. The kids will have fun and if they are yucky tasting you still will have a treasured memory of doing something fun with them.

I always use leftovers for practicing new techniques, making samples of new designs, etc. Butter is too expensive to just throw it out!

Man sometimes I wonder whos kid she is lol. She's got the worst attitude and the worst mouth... yells screams throws fits of rage and then when I get fed up to the point of not caring anymore (or at least acting like I don't lol) she wants to cry and hug and say she's sorry lol. She just slipped and fell to her bottom cause she was jumping off the steps, something we've told her a million times not to do, and she screamed "fine don't ask if I'm alright" I simply said "It's not that I don't care because I'm your mommy I love you and I'll always care about you, it's just right now... I just don't give a darn because you treat me and daddy like trash and expect us to bend over backwards and give you everything you ask for" she starts crying and wanting hugs and saying she's sorry lol... then goes to school comes home and starts all over again lol.... She's got ADHD really bad and unless she's had her medicine she's unbareable lol

o hun, I hear ya, I have two teenagers one with ADD (who wants to be a marine) and one with ADHD and ODD (oppositional defiant disorder). So I know what you are having to deal with and especially if it's a girl OMG that is ten times worse than if it's a boy.
But if it's any consolation, people with ADHD or ADD have higher IQ's and if they've learned to live with it, become some of our societies most active members. It's a good thing icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif but goin through that age, OMG ya just wanna choke em sometimes (we refrain though cause we love em, but yeah, I gotcha hun )

lol Chaptlps. Thanks for understand and relating without screaming at me for being a bad parent lol.

My 3 step children also have ADHD... 2 are boys 1 girl so we have 2 boys 2 girls with it and all ranging in age... 15, 13, 11, 8... boy boy girl girl lol... The 15 yr old has just about out grown his... he can be a little active and mischievious when he doesn't have his pills but when he does take them he doesn't eat icon_sad.gif but he's never been bad for us... we took him to Kings Dominon and he didn't take his pills because he wanted to be able to eat lunch that day and he was still very well behaved lol. My lil one on the other hand.... she misses her pill or is late getting it... OMG! lol Glad there are other parents out there that can relate lol.

My nephew has it bad too lol 2 of 3 of them... the oldest is just acting out because he's at that age - no meds are gonna help him lol. But the 8 yr old... omg! he's horrible... worse then my daughter without his pills lol.
