These chocolate chip cookies, “Easy Cookie Recipes” writer Addie Gundry promised, are the nice ever. With that boast, how may I want to no longer strive for them? And who better help me decide that my colleagues in the Press Herald newsroom who – actually – by no means say no to the self-made baked goods that appear inside the workplace? Gundry’s Best Chocolate Cookies Ever recipe called for butter-flavored vegetable shortening, something I don’t usually prepare dinner with. After a quick ride to the shop to choose up the shortening (I doubt I’ll end up using the rest), I headed domestic for some therapeutic baking after an extended day at paintings.
Like all the 103 recipes within the book, this one changed into clean to observe. And the quantity of dough it produced became fantastic: It almost overflowed from the bowl of my KitchenAid mixer. That meant, however, that I spent what seemed like hours scooping out tray after tray of cookies.
The resulting cookies had been appropriate, but I’ll forestall brief of calling them the high-quality ever. My colleagues agreed. One stated they were pedestrian. However, any other ranked them in her all-time top five. A fellow reporter concept they had been a tad on the salty side; however, that didn’t bother me. Overall the recipe changed into stable and genuinely well worth seeking to see if it suits your idea of the proper chocolate chip cookie.
