More Chocolate Chip Cookies
For this year's Parent Leadership Training Institute class, I've fallen down on my baking goal. I missed their first two weeks of class. This week, I made up for a bit of lost time with a batch of chocolate-chip cookies, using a tried-and-true recipe from Lauren Chattman's Mom's Big Book of Cookies. I had some leftover dark-chocolate M&Ms, so I used them in the cookies instead of chocolate chips.
I really like this chocolate-chip cookie recipe, but I tinker with the amount of flour in the dough. Generally, I like a cookie that doesn't spread as much, so I add up to 1/2 cup of flour to get a stiffer dough. It doesn't seem to affect the flavor of the cookies, and I end up with a cookie that I think looks better.
