How do you make Chocolate Chip Cookies? Because apparently I have forgotten. I was stumped because my Gluten Free Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chips cookies were fantastic! Keep reading, I ended up finding a few reasons on why they make have not turned out.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Remember those cookies my family wanted me to make? I was out of brown sugar and ended up making my own. Good thing they’re not too picky, because it was the biggest cookie fail EVER! I used the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and followed it precisely. I must admit that yes, it’s true that I don’t bake cookies too often. I should rephrase that……..I don’t MAKE cookie dough that often. I mean why make it when my local take and bake pizza joint has it for sale?
Even though my cookies turned out flatter than flat, we enjoyed them anyway after scraping them off the pan. They tasted delicious and I love the crispy edges. Seriously, why let flat cookies ruin your day?
I did however consult with my friend and foodie Cheryl with TidyMom.net
She asked the following questions:
Cheryl: “Did you forget the baking soda?”
Cheryl: “Was your baking soda old?”
Me: “yes probably” (strike one)
Cheryl: “were your eggs room temp? It’s best to use room temp eggs”
Me: “Nope, straight out of the fridge” (strike two)
Cheryl: “Did you over mix your batter?”
Me: Of course I did! I like eating smooth batter” (strike three……and yes, I know it’s dangerous to eat raw batter, but I do it anyway. Somethings are worth risking. I”m 50 yrs old and have never fallen sick yet………livin on the edge)
Just in case you need a recipe RIGHT now so you too can eat some cookie dough, here’s the famous Toll House one I’ve used for years.
