For our cookie challenge I chose these chocolate chip cookies to make from Martha Stewart‘s site. I made them on the only hot day we have had so far this year but I had an appointment that was cancelled and I wanted to take advantage of the free time I suddenly had. All through last week I showed you about making cookies and all of those photographs were of me making this particular batch of cookies.
I should have realized from the extraordinary amount of sugar that went in to these particular cookies that they would spread out and become quite flat. Next time I will take note of how much sugar is in the recipe, if it is more than a cup I probably will not make them. These are very delicious cookies but I do not like the flat kind, they get crunchy and I prefer my cookies be soft and light.
Despite the flatness issue, they were very good. I may even try them again and see if putting the batter in the fridge prevents them from spreading as much but as I said, with all of that sugar…I highly doubt it.
I think I am just very picky about my cookies. In all of the recipes I have auditioned, there have only been three that make it back on my baking stage. I keep looking though, hoping to be surprised. And so the baking adventure continues!
How did your cookies turn out?!
