PPQ – Chocolate Chip Cookies
This weekâ€™s Project Pastry Queen recipe was chosen by Kalyna who chose the chocolate chip cookies. We all have a favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and this one happens to be The Pastry Queenâ€™s favorite.
The other PPQâ€™ers had warned that the dough was a little strange â€“ some said the proportions were off, others said they spread too much â€“ and I have to agree. Generally when I see a recipe that calls for at least as much brown sugar as white, I expect a soft, chewy cookie. These guys? Not so much. Theyâ€™re pretty crispy for chocolate chip cookies. They also spread a lot more than other cookies and burned around the edges before cooking in the center.
The cookies are good, no doubt about it, but just not what I expected. The combination of pecans and walnuts was delicious with the chocolate even though my husband swears he canâ€™t even tell there are nuts in them.
