We needed a dessert for Sunday's dinner and I have a huge bag of chocolate chips in the pantry leftover from Christmas, so SP suggested chocolate chip cookies.
As a disclaimer - regular readers know I'm not a baker. I make cakes using boxed cake mixes and canned frosting. I don't make my own pizza dough. The one thing I feel confident baking is banana bread. I can't even tell you the last time I made cookies (aside from the jam thumbprints at Christmas). I say all this because of this picture:
Not the prettiest cookies in the world, are they? I really had no idea how much they would spread during baking. SP asked me to make them on the larger side, so I did. When I opened the oven to flip the trays all the dough had basically pooled together into one giant cookie. All I could do was laugh.
The good thing is, despite their freakish appearance, they tasted great. Really cakey, with a lot of chips dispersed throughout the dough. Now I just need to work on my technique.
