Chewy Chocolate chip and Almond cookies
So things have been a little crazy around here. I've been trying to wrap things up at Stanford before I graduate in June - I'm excited about that! So I haven't had much time to do a lot of baking. But here's a recipe that I tried a couple of weeks ago, that was really "interesting."
Chewy Chocolate chip cookies. I added slivered almonds to these to give it that extra flavor - plus I love nuts.
Now making these cookies was of course very simple - just a matter of mixing things together, scooping it onto a baking sheet, and baking it off.
But there was something that put me off when I tasted it.
For me, it's a bit too rich. It definitely had the right texture, but I'm not a fan of excessive butter - which is important for the chewiness of the cookie. Now my lab mates clearly disagree with me. When I put it out on the counter, these cookies were gone in a flash - apparently, they were that good.
So I would recommend this recipe for people who love the flavor of butter and don't care about how buttery these cookies are. There is absolutely nothing wrong with these cookies. Like I said, it's just a personal thing.
