Here’s another tribute to chocolate chip cookies. Lately I’ve been having trouble when baking cookies. The new UK ingredients are throwing me off and I haven’t quite gotten used to an oven that has a fan in it. The problem is that the cookies come out of the oven extremely flat; there’s hardly any puff at all. Since I’m so accomplished in the ways of chocolate chip cookies, I know that 1) if you add more egg, the cookies will be more cake-like (puffier); 2) if you use shortening instead of butter, the cookies won’t spread as thin; and 3) using baking powder instead of soda will give it more rise. I did all of this, but I’m still a little disappointed in the result. The frustrating thing is that I’m using the exact same recipe that I used in Waco, where my cookies were perfect! Any advice would be welcome. I cannot rest until I’ve perfected my cookies in the UK.
Nonetheless, I still love cookies, so I made this tribute in honor of the chocolate chip cookie. The hardest part was deciding which music to put with it; I think I chose wisely :).
