I decided to make my special spice cookies for the church Christmas dinner. The last step of this recipe is to dip the warm baked cookie in powdered sugar. I made my cookies and took them to church, but noticed that everyone made a face when they took a bite then threw the cookie away. I took a bite and they were awful. When I got home I looked at my ingredients and realized that I'd dipped the cookies in cornstarch which I store in the same kind of Tupperware container. Nasty!

Well it looked like powdered sugar!  I would not have that happen to me - or I should say they would not leave the house that way.  I could not ever take cookies anywhere that I had baked, without eating at least one.

I guess it is always a good thing to taste test cookies before taking them to an event.  Sorry that happended to you.

Label containers or taste what is in them.  It's so easy to pick the wrong one when containers are alike.

I was making homemade bread and we did not have dry milk so we used the coffee creamer instead.

I guess you marked the containers now so you would not make the same mistake again
