This week’s TWD was chosen by Kait of Kait’s Plate: my best chocolate chip cookies! Believe it or not, I’m not a huge chocolate chip cookie fanatic. Warm from the oven I like them a lot, but once they’ve cooled, I could easily pass them up. Chocolate chip cookie dough, though, that’s another story. I could eat a ton of it, probably because it’s easy to pick around the chocolate in the dough, which is my least favorite part. Once the cookies are baked it’s much trickier to avoid the chocolate!
I made these cookies to include as part of Shane’s Valentine’s Day gift (I left the nuts out) and while he enjoyed them, they definitely weren’t a favorite. They’re much too thin and crispy; in fact, the edges were lacy. We prefer a thicker, more chewy chocolate chip cookie. If I made this recipe again I’d have to play around with adding more flour. But, truthfully, with so many chocolate chip cookie recipes out there to try, I’m not likely to repeat this one. In fact, just a few days after I baked these cookies, I tried a different recipe, which yielded fantastic cookies. I’ll be sharing them later this week!
