TWD: My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies


This weeks TWD selection was My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, chosen by Kait of Kait's Plate. I actually made this recipe several weeks ago, when I felt we all needed a chocolate fix. :)

I halved the recipe, and while they weren't bad, they were almost too buttery (I know, how can such a thing be possible?), and they spread way too much for my liking.

Upon reading the comments from the other TWD Bakers, I realized I was not the only one with the spreading problem. Some people like the thin, crispy cookies, but I prefer mine not to spread so much. Many bakers suggested either decreasing the butter, or increasing the flour. If I make these again, I'll probably cut back on the amount of butter used. However, it's likely that I'll try a different recipe first!

They definitely filled the chocolate-fix requirement though, and didn't last long!

Be sure to check out what the other TWD bakers did with this week's recipe!!


Enjoy! :)

Well, as long as they satisfied the chocolate craving! I thought mine were too thin too, but they were fairly chewy, so I was okay with it.

The chocolate chip cookies look wonderful! With all the chocolate chip cookie recipe variations out there, I know you will eventually find the right one for you. Ours is the Alton Brown "chewy" chocolate chip cookie recipe. He has a crunchy variation too. Just go to the foodnetwork site to get the recipe if you would like to try it =)

I agree that these were too thin. (mine baked thin too!) Tasty, but too thin. I will stick to Toll House for now. :)

Even though they look great, I relate on the too thin sentiment. I made this one over a year ago so I decided to make a few other recipes and do a taste test instead.

Wow - you and I definitely were on the same thought track this week. I think they were good, but not the best. Of course, that didn't stop me from eating them!
