November Cookie Carnival
The November cookie carnival recipe is for the Ultimate Chewy and Soft Chocolate Chunk Cookies. As you know, I am always looking for another perfect CCC recipe, so I was keen to try this one out and I knew it would be something else that the builders would enjoy!
I did make a couple of changes to the recipe – one, I used only one egg, rather than the two the recipe called for. I don’t like really wet cookie mixture, as I don’t like cookies that spread too much. Because I cut down on the wet ingredients, I also dropped ½ a cup of the flour. The cookie dough was perfect to scoop into balls and drop onto the baking trays. I used a block of Whittakers 62% chocolate as my chocolate chunks. This chocolate is perfect for cookies as it is not too dark, but also not too sweet.
The cookies baked beautifully. They spread a little, but not too much. I left them to cool a little on the trays before I cooled them completely on racks. I think they were a little soft for my tastes, but that is something that could probably be remedied by leaving them on the baking trays for a little longer.
Thanks Kate for organising another great cookie carnival!
