Dough Ornament Recipe
Very dry dough, and hard to work with. Wasn't smooth, but rough and bumpy.

Buttery Soft Pretzels
I'm not sure why this recipe is getting such great reviews, being that the water to flour ratio is incorrect. I added three cups of flour to the bowl with the dry ingredients and was expecting to add the other two cups after the wet ingredients were added, so I didn't make the dough too heavy right from the start. Turns out I never used the entire 2 cups I had put aside (except a tiny bit to flour my board while kneading). Without looking at other people reviews, I can see people having a very hard time with this dough.

World's Best Scones! From Scotland to the Savoy to the U.S.
Bitter after taste from the baking powder. Rule of thumb is 1 1/4 tsp per 1 cup flour, and this recipe has way too much. I was wondering why it was inedible for me, but my husband kept saying "it's not so bad", and it's happened before with us with a banana bread recipe. did some research and it turns out a small percentage of the population is super sensitive to the taste of baking powder. Lucky me.
