My cousin D and I have been talking about chocolate chip cookies. It made me experiment again. But I already have a go-to recipe that I quite like (even if I experiment with other recipes still) but I’ve always baked in my big gas oven and this time I wanted to try it in my little electric oven…
The mixing part –
1. Creaming the butter and sugars.
2. Stirring in the flour mixture.
3. Folding in the chocolate chips and chunks. I used 2 kinds of chips – semi-sweet chips and dark chips; plus I added chopped bittersweet chocolate (at least 72%)
I think that using different kinds of chocolate, as well as differently sized bits, in the cookie makes the resulting cookie so much better, with a different dimension to it.
See? My oven is really small and it can only take 6 cookies at a time, and I had to use the 1-oz scoop at that!
The results –
top – 8 minutes baking time. Result – soft and chewy cookies
middle – 10 minutes baking time. Result – crispy edges, soft and chewy centers
bottom – 12 minutes baking. Result – super crispy cookies.
The winner as per hubby – soft and chewy, 8-minute baked cookies
The little girl’s favorite? The super crispy, 12-minute baked oookies
Me? I added walnuts to the last batch of 6
and baked them for 9 minutes…
(before i forget, I always turn the baking sheet around midway!
