I have a confession to make-I am not great at making cookies and hence don’t make them very often. They seem easy enough; Mix dry together, mix wet together, then combine and spoon on cookie sheet. But oh no, its never that easy. (Or at least not for me!)
People tell you either A) Mix ingredients together like crazy or B) Don’t mix them TOO much. So which is it?
Last night, I thought it would be cool to mix this recipe with peanut butter. The cookie dough looked awesome in my mixer, all chunky and thick. Girls in the throes of the ‘time of the month’ would have been tempted to eat a scoop of it. So I was feeling all confident when they were baking in my oven. Unfortunately, our oven light has burned out so I can’t see what sort of monstrosities are brewing during the cooking process.
Once the timer went off, the cookies looked like toast and I don’t mean that in a metaphorical sense. I mean it literally!
They looked like slabs of bread with peanut butter on top and they were were crumbs all over the place! Of course, they were tasty, but still, the presentation was all wrong!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to make the perfect soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie? Or some good recipes?
