cookie carnival :: november
i totally intended to have this up sooner, but, what can i say, i got swept up in election fever.
this month we attempt a classic! sure, we've all done them before, but i think it's because they are worthy.
this month's recipe comes from Regan Daley from her absolutely fabulous MUST-HAVE book, In The Sweet Kitchen.
the only issue i can find with this book is that there are not enough photos of her creations, there's a few, but just not enough. in addition to the creative, mouth-watering recipes this book has everything you could ever need to know about baking--conversion charts, flavor pairings, info on tools and ingredients that are detailed and smart, but Daley is never condescending. if anyone ever wants to start-up a Sweet Kitchen recipe-a-month kind of thing, i'm all over it.
so, i'm very excited to try her recipe :: THE ULTIMATE CHEWY and SOFT CHOCOLATE CHUNK COOKIES. i haven't yet tried them and am excited to as i have loved everything in the book that i've tried so far!
Crisp and Crunchy have their place in the world of biscuits, but not, I believe, in the best and simplest chocolate chip cookie. If you like chewy, cakey and full to the brim with chocolate, these are for you. oh yes. they are for me. and hopefully for you, as well!
