Yep they're flat....but I expected it.
After reading all of the comments I knew going in that the final result would more than likely be a flat cookie. Flat is not my favorite kind of chocolate chip cookie. I prefer fat and cakey...but I'm always up for something new.
Kait of Kait's Plate chose these chocolate chip (chunk) cookies for TWD this week.
I chopped the chocolate instead of using chocolate chips. This may be my new preferred way to add chocolate to a cookie. I used part of a big bar of bittersweet chocolate from Trader Joe's and that was a lot of chocolate to add to the batter. The good thing about chopping your own...the big chunks that were just a little too big for the cookie...got eaten with raw cookie dough attached...Yum.
I did add 1/4 extra flour to the dry stuff and also added 1 1/2 TBSP. of espresso powder with the vanilla. After scooping the dough onto the silpat, I froze the sheet for about 30 minutes before baking. I think that might have helped a little with the spreading.
These cookies are really good....but I still prefer this one. Simply because it's fat and cakey. My preference.
Check out the others to see their results.
Thanks for stopping by.
