I once made a terrible mistake reading a ginger cookie recipe becasue the first step was to set aside some sugar to roll the dough in later, so the sugar was the first thing in the ingredient list. Since you also refrigerate your dough for an hour before doing the rolling, I just ignored that step for the moment and went down the list of everything else I needed- totally forgetting that that the first thing listed was not the flour but the sugar. I felt like the dough was stickier that usual even after I refrigerated it but figured it was fine. It wasn't until I opened the oven after baking and was greeted with a sticky, bubbly carmelized nightmare coating the whole baking pan that I knew that everything was not, in fact, fine. There wasn't even kind of enough flour in that dough to make something resembing a cookie. Basically I had made ginger caramel bark. (Which wasn't too bad tbh) I'm usually such a good baker, it was embarassing.

Not me, but a family member who shall not be named, once decided we all needed to "eat healthy", so this well-meaning soul made a pecan pie - with no sugar, no corn syrup, nothing. Just dry pecans, burned into a dry pie crust. Thanks, I guess?

My mother is a retired Home ec. teacher, she has so many stories like this. Like the time they made brownies and one group put one cup of baking soda and not one tea spoon. She was wondering where all the baking soda went when they came running up to her with what she described as molten bubbly brownies. Apparently they had only skimmed the recipe and added all measurements as cups, because they're exceptional (her words). This was in High School BTW.

She suspected they had never paid attention to family members cooking and thought her class was an easy A, so they didn't really need to pay attention.

It was made early in the day, so she kept the molten brownies out with a note that read " When you don't read recipes this is what happens." Made by <Students' names>
