After yesterday's blueberry debacle, I wanted even more to bring something to work to share.
Even with the safest of cookies -- chocolate chip -- I still do not feel comfortable. I've come to this realization after batches and batches of them, and it is perhaps due to my reluctance to measure ingredients -- ironic, as I am an engineer. Perhaps I am too used to cooking, which requires much less accuracy.
But! These certainly came out better than the blueberry mess.
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar
and then mix in:
1 tsp cinnamon
dollop of cinnamon
The cinnamon, I think, is what makes these interesting.
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp hot water
and stir in. Then add:
1 1/2 c. flour
and then stir in:
more than 1/2 c. chocolate chips
handful of chopped walnuts
and bake in spoonfuls for 10-14 minutes at 375 degrees. When they came out, I added a sprinkle of raw sugar for visual appeal.
We will see tomorrow, in the public eye, how they fare.
