This week’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 Queen’s favorite.
The other PPQ’ers had warned that the dough was a little strange – some said the proportions were off, others said they spread too much – 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. They’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 can’t even tell there are nuts in them.
