Any signs of flying pigs???
I baked tonight. I baked cookies tonight.
This is my first recipe post.
I found this recipe last year and made a batch (may be two).
I got to tell you it’s absolutely amazing! I am not big fan of sweets (chocolate does not count, I love chocolate!!) so if I say something is good, you got to believe me.
As recipe states, the secret of those cookies is that part of the white chocolate chips is melted into the dough. I both melt chocolate chips and soften butter in the microwave. Let me finish. I did my googling, I know that butter should not be liquidy otherwise cookies, or any other baked stuff (yes, it’s a technical baking term) won’t come out right. I am a chemist for the sake of all that’s fuzzy, butter should remain in the state of suspension to absorb molecules of sugar.
If butter is softened and not melted cookies don’t spread as much while baking so they stay softer and gooeyer inside. Yes, we all about gooey cookies around here.
Back to the microwave, I only set power to 500 watt, it only takes one minute for butter and two minutes for chocolate chips.
The only thing I do differently from the recipe is that I use half regular sugar and half brown sugar (light brown sugar). To make them even more gooey. Told ya.
I also doubled the recipe. For the most part cookies are meant for Thanksgiving dinner (would probably have to put them in the trunk so we don’t eat them all while driving for 6 hours to NH), and I also wanted to take some for work. Let’s see how long it will take for cookies to disappear.
