Morning. How’s it goin? Our town may get some light showers today. It was muggy yesterday and today the sun is fighting for some presence.
Delicious baking, you are on FIRE!from Karen of Pumpkin Sunrise
Thank you, Karen. I kind of always had this baking bucket list in the back of my mind of Pinterest recipes I wanted to try. This whole SIP has enabled me to start making a dent in it.
Are any of you fans of Joanna Gaines and Magnolia Table?
While perusing Pinterest I noticed how her chocolate chip cookies were popular. Looking at the ingredients I saw it only uses brown sugar. I then learned that just using this type of sugar will make the cookie chewy, intriguing me.
About two evenings ago I set out to keep my promise to the husband even though it was in the 90’s. I used a medium cookie scoop, a #40, which gave us a full cookie jar.
These cookies came out a little crispy around the edges and definitely chewy in the middles.
You can see they’re not puffy like hers. The recipe did say to use a heaping teaspoon of baking soda, something I didn’t do. Also the batter was warm when I was scooping out dough. I think if I make these another time, I’ll do that heaping teaspoon and I will put this dough in the frig for an hour to firm up some. In addition, I do need to check my baking soda.
I asked the crew, which recipe do you like more – the traditional, Nestle Tollhouse cookie or this one?
- E: I love both.
- Teenager: This one.
- Tween: This one hurts my jaw. (She likes the traditional ones more.)
Me? I think I like the traditional one more. How do you like your chocolate chip cookie?
Off to look at apple cake recipes. Since it’s cooler today, only low 70’s, I will probably bake again.
Thanks for droppin by. TTYS.
