With that in mind, I toddled off to the kitchen to make myself some cookies. With nothing more than a bowl and my trusty wooden spoon, I whipped up these cookies in no time. What’s more, they’re quite good and worth making more than once. I’ve already made three batches. I thought these cookies were somewhat similar to a Tim Horton’s cookie with a slightly crisped edge and soft interior. Only the first batch was made exactly as the recipe is written, but that’s pretty good for me. I’ve made these using both chocolate chips and hand chopped chocolate chunks and I much preferred the second method, (which is how the recipe is written). I also tried using half bittersweet chocolate and half white chocolate and that was a big hit too. On the third batch I made I added in a couple tablespoons of cappuccino powder which I find adds a depth of flavour that isn’t always identified as coffee, but is always identified as tasty. I brought the third batch with me as a hostess gift. You don’t win friends with salad but I’m trying my hardest to prove that you can win them with cookies.
