Cookography -- Butter Cookie Bark

Ah, butter. Aside from mayonnaise, it's my favorite condiment. Of course mayonnaise cookies might not be very appetizing. I'll work on that. These started out as an epic fail. What I envisioned were those cute little square butter cookies you can find in the tin at the grocery store. What I got was this.

Thin, way too thin!
I had cut the most perfect little squares out of the refrigerated dough. I placed them so evenly on the cookie sheet and 15 minutes later, I had an entire pan full of FAIL. Not to be one daunted by such things, I cut up the rest of the dough and placed it in the oven. Somehow I was hoping that I would get a different result, but alas, I did not. I got a whole other pan of FAIL.

Still not one to be daunted, and really wanting to have a butter cookie for the tea, I crumbled up the sheets of FAIL, and what I was left with is what I now call Butter Cookie Bark.

This FAIL, turned out to be one of the hits of the party. I'm really glad I didn't just throw it away when I took it out of the oven. It dipped well in tea without leaving crumbs in the bottom of the cup that regular butter cookies would have.
