Food adventures: How (not) to halve recipes

You know when you cut a recipe in half and everything is going perfectly ... until it comes out wrong and ugly and you realize that you forgot to halve one ingredient?

This time, it was the eggs.


Naturally, we didn't realize this until an hour or so later, after lamenting the disfiguration of our precious cookies. The epiphany went something like this:

Me: Those cookies are a little weird.
Roomie: Yeah they're a little cake-y.
M: They're also really egg-y...you know?
...
R: OH!
M: OH! Ohhhhhhh....oops.
