twd: Dorie's Fave Chocolate Chip Cookies

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.

I like your close-up pic! I used pecans too, but no cinnamon.

I am marveling at how we all had the same recipe and yet all the cookies look so individual this week! Yours look lovely, even if they weren't your favorite.

Mine turned out like yours and I agree with your review. I also agree with baking them in ramekins! What a great idea!

Dough WAS good. Wish they had not been so flat.

Yours are beautifully browned. And adding cinnamon would be a great addition.
