If you missed my last post, I am having a chocolate chip cookie battle to see which of five cookie recipes is the best.
When I made these cookies from Bon Appetit, they were so ugly looking that I thought I had ruined them.
Then, I looked back at the original picture and realized that, nope, I didn't ruin them ... they are supposed to be ugly.
I took a bite and came to the realization that ugly can be very, very tasty. They are crisp on the outside, but soft in the middle - a very pleasing texture.
Crisp and Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Adapted slightly from: Bon Appetit)
3/4 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup + 2 T flour
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream the butter with both sugars. Add the egg and vanilla, mix. Sift together the flour, salt and baking powder and add to the wet ingredients. Mix on low until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and mix on low until incorporated. Bake 6-8 minutes @ 425.
Choosing a winning recipe in this battle is going to be difficult. Especially when you see what I have for you tomorrow ...
Do you make anything that is ugly but tastes ohhhh so good?
