Chocolate chips were on sale the other week so I stocked up on a bunch of different varieties. I rediscovered them in the cupboard yesterday and started eating them, which is why I decided to bake cookies- if I was going to eat chocolate chips I’d have to work for it!
I’m getting pretty good at making cookies that are uniform in size and shape, and don’t all flatten and spread out so they stick together. These actually came out kind of weird- pale and kind of puffy, crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside, like chocolate chip macaron halves. I think they came out so pale because ALL THREE bags of brown sugar I have were totally rock hard and solidified, so I had to grind it into usability, which made it into a light brown sugar. I do not recommend this, btw, it was a total hassle! After I made the cookies I dumped of it into a big ziploc bag with some apple so hopefully it’ll soften up.
After rolling out all the cookie dough balls to fill two baking sheets I still had some dough left over, so I made this giant heart cookie for Taylor. Why yes, I am that adorable.
As usual I used the Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe from The Crepes of Wrath.
