So I did a good old fashioned google search and came up with all kinds of cookies that looked flat and boring. These, "Baker's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies" looked like they had potential. I have to admit my heart wasn't totally in it. Lila was feeling a little miserable today, I think she has some teeth coming, of course I have thought that for the past three months and so far, none. So I was running back and forth between trying to entertain her and make the cookies which resulted in one pan of under-cooked cookies and two pans of over-cooked cookies and two pans of just right cookies. These ones were just right.
I have developed a rating scale for the cookies that I think encompasses all that is wonderful about chocolate chip cookies, according to me. The scale is from 1 - 5. 1 being not good and 5 being excellent. So for this recipe (based on the two pans that cooked the way they were supposed to!):
Chewy Inside - 4
Crispy Outside - 4
Amount of chocolate being just right (not too much and not too little) - 4
Sweet to salt ratio - 2
Just out of the oven taste - 3
Next day taste - to be determined
Ease of recipe - 5
Am I missing anything here? Is there anything else I should be rating?
I like this recipe but it feels like there is something missing. Maybe it is because there is no salt in it and as you know I like a little salt in my cookies. Overall, good but not as good as the Big Chocolate Chip Cookies.
