Change a couple of ingredients and get another product

Last edited Wed Jan 16, 2013, 08:38 PM - Edit history (1)

I exchanged Plugra (European butter) for the regular Land O'Lakes and Ghirardelli 60% cacao bittersweet chocolate chips for Nestles chocolate chips.

The results were a new dimension of chocolate chip cookie. Very rich. Creamy. I also added finely ground walnuts to the dough.

2. Those sound deeply yummy.

I gave up on Nestles a couple of years ago when all of a sudden their product became less chocolaty and kind of gummy. I love nuts in practically everything and while I've strengthening pie crusts with ground nuts, I've never done that with a regular chocolate chip cookie. I do hand grind walnuts for a shortbread made with vanilla bean sugar, though, and it's one of my favorite cookies of all time. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm going to give it a shot on my next batch.

4. Almost anything would be better than Hershey's pseudo chocolate.

Using real chocolate would improve anything by about 400%.

I sometimes add finely ground hazelnuts to my cookies.

5. Re-emphasis on the European butter.

A completely different texture and taste. Not your mother's cookies.
