What happened to my puffy cookies?

These cookies were supposed to be puffy mounds of goodness for my goddaughter’s 13th birthday. Instead, they ended up flat as pancakes, but extremely large. So I brought them to work and made Sara something more acceptable looking! I blame these on the heat and humidity. They were well-received at work today. ☺

Note- you don’t have to use cake flour, you can entirely use regular flour of you want. Also preheat your oven to 410 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it heats up to the right amount.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup cup butter
  • 1/2 cup crisco
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, Crisco, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips. Divide dough evenly into 8 mounds. Chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 410 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheer lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies. Bake 14 to 16 minutes (you will see light golden pathches on top) . cool completely. Store in covered container.

The cookie monster did not take a bite of this one, I promise!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day, one that I hope is filled with joy and love. And remember to be kind. We are all fighting a battle of some sort.

Acceptable flat chocolate chip cookies

Look at all those chips!

Usually, I prefer my cookies to be puffy, like mounds of sweet goodness. These turned out a little flatter than I prefer, but I still believe the are acceptable to serve to others. And as an extra treat, I melted milk chocolate and coated some on the bottom. Why, you ask? Just because. ☺

  • Cookie ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp hot water
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs. In a separate cup, dissolve baking soda in water. add to sugar mixture. Mix in vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Stir in 1 1/2 cups chips. Form 1/4 cups of dough into mounds. Gently add extra chips (from remaining 1/2 cup) into the top of each mound. Chill dough a few hours. Preheat oven to 350 for 20 minutes. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Bake 12 to 14 minutes (light golden spots on top). Cool completely. Optional – combine 1 cup chocolate chips and 1 tbs vegetable oil in a microwave safe container. Microwave in 30 second increments until you can stir smooth. Cover bottoms of cookies. Let set, upside down, until chocolate is solid. Store in covered container.

Frost the bottoms with melted chocolate!

Hat trick of cookies!

Remember to be kind. We are all going through some sort of trial. Some people’s trials are extremely heavy burdens. Give people a break. And give yourself a break too. Wishing you peace, love and happiness. ❤
