I changed my photo banner for the first time since I started my blog — what do you think? Anyway, I needed to bake a bunch of cookies the other night. I hit the jackpot with this page on Smitten Kitchen. I’ll talk more about the chocolate cookies some other time.
First, about the chocolate chip. I baked these pretty carefully, and I’m not sure how they would spread as think as SK’s, but there was no need to panic. These were beautifully soft, just the way I like them. (No crispy chocolate chip cookies in my house, please.) The funny thing was, I started baking at around 8:30pm and realized I had no vanilla in the house. So I had to run to the market because I didn’t want to take a risk. With two different cookies on the agenda, my baking ran pretty late, needless to say.
The cookies were a huge hit. It was kind of funny shaping them, because there were so many chocolate chips per cookie, almost not enough dough to hold the cookies together. But they baked up right. This recipe is a winner, but I’d probably bake mine a little bit longer next time because my oven tends to run cool.
