I would not like to try it and I definitely would not like it sprung on me. Specifically, I would be extremely PO'd.

Tony,

 :-D   I wouldn't spring it on you.

On Shark Tank there were these two guys selling pastries made with cricket flour. The judges could not tell the difference.

Maybe I'll start making flour out of fire ants.

Well, I think I over fermented the cricket flour dough.  At least it looked okay along with the flower arrangement my friends Jeff and Mark gave me yesterday.  ;D

If anyone would like to know why I thought the cricket dough was overfermented:

It opened too easily.  In fact it stretched bigger than the 18 peel before I knew what happened.
When I went to place the cricket dough on the peel it stretched more. 
The dough wanted to stick to the peel.
I still didn't want to give up. 
It was balled and rolled.
Next, it still wanted to get too big.
Then it was put on parchment paper.  The dough skin was formed to make a crust.

Still wonder how that cricket dough got so messed up.

Was it at all soft like that the first time you tried the cricket flour?

Craig,

No, it wasn't as soft last week.  I thought the cricket dough felt a lot better this week when it was mixed.  What happened in the meantime is a mystery to me.  It still looked good and felt good before the warm-up this week.  It even had a better smell this week.
