I know, more chocolate chip cookies. I am kind of obsessed. But hey, I love to make cookies, and I absolutely love chocolate, so they are perfect. But this time it is different, because I made my own recipe. I started out with the original Nestlé Toll House recipe and changed up the ingredients according to information I looked up on what makes a chewier, cakier cookie, since that is what I like my cookies to be like. I think I hit it pretty dead on, just make sure that you don't leave them in the oven too long, because some of my cookies I did that for and they were crunchier. When I made the cookies, I used half butter and half shortening because it apparently is supposed to make for a cakier cookie, but I found that it didn't make much of a difference and I liked the butter taste better, so I changed it for you guys to all butter instead. I hope you enjoy my very own recipe for chocolate chip cookies!
Today I opened the cookie jar after having made my Chocolate Chip Cookies two days ago and found only one cookie left. However, I, being the avid baker I am, was not bothered by this at all. It means I get to make more cookies! As always, I went with a new recipe this time, and ventured away from the typical chocolate chip cookie for a more unique recipe. This recipe sure is unique, but let me tell you, that does not mean it is not absolutely delicious! It has just the right amount of cinnamon and the use of all brown sugar instead of half brown and half white compliments the cinnamon in the cookie very well. I used a bag of Hershey's cinnamon chips, but you can use any brand you can find, really. Enjoy!
Today, like every day, I felt like baking, but I really wanted to make something my whole family would eat, something more "useful" than just cookies or brownies, so I made bread. It takes some time, of which I had, but the end product is really good, not to mention really pretty as well. Plus, it makes your whole house smell like maple honey, which is always nice. So if you have some time on your hands, give this bread recipe a shot!
Chocolate Chip Cookies will probably always be my favorite cookies to make. They are quick, easy, and absolutely delicious. Plus, as I've mentioned before, they would have to be my favorite tasting cookie dough as well, which is always a plus. Today I made Vermont Oatmeal Maple-Honey Bread as well, so I didn't feel like making something really extravagant that would take me hours, but I wanted to make something sweet for the house, so I made these. And, as I always like to do, I tried out a new recipe. Honestly, I think it is pretty similar to the Toll House recipe in taste, but they did turn out chewier than I've ever been able to get them, which I liked. These cookies have a subtly crisp outer with a soft and chewy interior that gives them a great texture. So if you like that in your cookie, try this recipe!
Today I really felt like baking, but I wanted to make something that would go to use, so I decided to make breakfast for my staff tomorrow morning, and what is better for breakfast than chocolate chip muffins! I made them mini so I would have enough, but they are absolutely delicious and have just enough chocolate in them to satisfy that sweet tooth of yours early in the morning, especially since they are so quick to make! You can use muffin tin liners or just take the easy route like me and spray your muffin tins. Enjoy!
I am always looking for reasons to make cookies, especially since we are leaving for New Jersey in a couple of days and I don't want them to go to waste. These won't, however. My brother asked three separate times for a cookie, all times in which I had to say no because 1) I hadn't frosted them 2) I hadn't put sprinkles on them and 3) I hadn't taken my pictures yet. When he finally got a cookie, I asked him if they were any good, to which he replied, "Oh yeah, these are amazing". Then he had like three more.
So I hope I've proven a point here. These cookies are amazing. They are named "Lofthouse Soft Sugar Cookies" because they are supposed to be a copycat recipe of the Lofthouse Cookie brand, which I think they resemble very closely. The sour cream does the trick. And they may seem undercooked when you take them out of the oven but they are supposed to be soft, so they are probably not.
I made these cookies for the USA v. Belgium FIFA World Cup Game, but you can make them for any occasion: Halloween, Christmas, birthdays, anything! Hope you like them (which of course you will), and I hope the USA wins!
