Last week I received my copy of Martha Stewart’s Cookies Cookbook and couldn’t wait to dive in and try some recipes. Well I may have a new hobby here folks and that is making a cookie recipe a week. The hubby thinks I should start a blog titled “How Fat Can Pete Get?” but I think I will stick to posting pictures of the cookies I make here on Planet Books instead.
I actually made two of the 175 recipes over the weekend and man, were they delicious. The first one is “Thin & Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies”. Now, I have always made the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Cookie and have never strayed from that sure fire recipe but I was curious about this one. Well folks, it was AWESOME!!!! Buttery and crispy and HUGE!
The second cookie I made was “Chocolate Thumb Prints”. This was a first of this type of recipe for me and it was fun to make. I finally figured a better way of making the thumb print with the last batch. Instead of freezing your finger on ice and than pressing it into the hot hot cookie, I chilled the tip of my coffee scoop and used that to make the indentation. I got a deeper hole that looked nicer when holding the chocolate filling after completely cooling. Below are pics of the two cookies on a platter for a going away party I attended on Tuesday.
