Thanks to Kait, of Kait's Plate for this week's pick - Dorie's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These were good, especially with pecans because I love a chocolate + nut combo. I added a few teaspoons of cinnamon to the flour mixture that spiced it up a bit. When cooked, it was just a hint, not an overwhelming "that's cinnamon" taste. The edges of the cookies were a lovely caramel color and texture.
But chocolate chip cookies are one of those things...it's in the taste of the beholder. These were good cookies, but not my favorite. Why? Well, they were way too thin. The chips and pecans were sticking up and they started getting holes in them. Very thin.
Plus, very chewy. Chewy can be good, but I prefer soft, dense cookies. Of course, I snitched on the dough, which was also very good. I think these would be awesome baked in little ramekins as mini chocolate chip cookie cakes. Something to try.
