About a month ago I tried a cookie at a local bakery and I knew I wanted to re-create it. It was thick, chewy, and was loaded with fall goodness. So to the web I went, not once but twice, and each time my cookies have turned out like this. :(
I tried refrigerating the dough for an hour and then baking, freezing the balls of dough on the cookie sheet for 30 minutes and then baking, and even froze the dough over night. FAIL! However not a complete failure because the flavor is great! Not to toot my own horn but I think they are even better than the original one I tried, but in no way is this sugary circle thick or chewy. I will not be defeated by you cookie. Because you are way too tasty to move on to the next one. (Yes, I do talk to my baked goods from time to time). Back to the mixer I go…….
