I emailed Anna (The Cookie Madness goddess) and reported the issue. In less than 24 hours, I had a troubleshooting guide in my inbox as Anna attempted to recreate and solve the problem all the way in Austin.

We narrowed it down to two likely suspects: baking powder and parchment paper. Continue reading
