Mine is similar to Beaulana's, although I was 20 at the time :) I was baking cookies at my parents' place, and I used this brown plastic sheet. After a while, I went to check on the cookies, and I noticed this brown liquid dripping down from the rack. At first I was surprised, because I didn't see how there could have been so much chocolate in the cookies! Then I realized my mistake.... The plastic was fused with the rack, and it was IMPOSSIBLE to seperate the two. As a result, my mom's oven has one less rack today :(

My story is similar to the biscuit one, only with cream puffs!! I guess I was about 12, and decided to try to make cream puffs; well, the recipe said to drop them by 'tablespoonfuls' on the baking sheet, and I thought that was way too puny looking, so I about tripled the size. The cream puffs were about the size of a honeydew melon!!

Not funny.....but I sometimes have problems with cookies too. I've had oatmeal cookies spread flat all over the pan, and sometimes cookies with a lot of butter do too. Yes, my pan is cool so that's not the problem. They still taste good, but I can't serve/take them to people. I don't have a problem with chocolate chips. I need to find some more foolproof cookie recipes.

We had a similar incident--my mom kept the dry ingredients in Maxwell House coffee jars, with no labels, and my sister made Baking powder chocolate chip cookies(no flour) talk about YUCKY!
It's not the destination, but the journey!

I've been designated as the dessert maker @ work for potlucks. Two years ago, I made pies for our Thanksgiving lunch. I made one pumpkin, and one apple. The apple was amazing.

The pumpkin pie looked a little odd. I thought I'd better try it first, I didn't want anyone else to try it if it was bad. Turns out, I used the recipe off a can of pumpkin pie filling, when all I used was pure pumpkin. It was awful!

I'm so glad I tried it first!
