The Chocolate Chunk Cookie Disasters

I baked some cookies early this week and another batch a few minutes ago, and they were both disasters! I didn't bother taking pictures as I am too disappointed to take photos of them.

Disaster # 1

I used the recipe I got from the Ultimate Chocolate Treats course I did last year (read post here). I've used that recipe a few times before, but this is the first time it failed! It dropped and spread too much, and not as chewy as I expected. Plus the chocolates melted too much. I don't have any chocolate chips, so I used chocolate and chopped them to pieces.

The next day when I took one from the cookie jar and had my first bite, they turned out okay. Not chewy but definitely not hard. It's like rubbery, like eating nougat (in Tagalog, it's called makunat). That texture is okay with me because I like makunat. :D For example, I like Hershey's Whopper's more than Maltesers because some Whopper pieces are more tough/rubbery when you chew on them.

But still, this batch was still a disaster because they look too flat and not as soft as they should be!

Disaster # 2

Hubby and I ran out of sweets to eat, so a few hours ago I decided to bake some. This time I used the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe I used last week.

Since I used this last week and they turned out okay, I tried this. I still used chocolate chunks as I was out of chips. Disaster strikes again! As soon as those cookies cooled a bit, they were stone hard! Terrible! I wanted to throw all of those cookies in the trash! Hubby just won't let me!

Next week I'll buy some chips and bake again!


Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

After moving to our new apartment a month ago, I finally baked something!

I've always wanted to try the Nestle Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe, but never had the chance. One thing that encouraged me the most is an episode from Friends, when Monica was trying to copy the chocolate chip cookie based on Phoebe's grandmother's recipe. Turned out it was the Nestle Toll House recipe. hihi!

So now that I've got my oven, got my baking utensils and finally bought ingredients, I baked! Funny thing is, I can't find any Nestle Toll House chocolate chips! hahaha!

You can get the recipe from Very Best Baking.
