TWD: Chocolate Chip Cookies


This week we made Chocolate Chip Cookies for Tuesdays with Dorie. These are Dorie's tried and true chocolate chip cookies. And since I always love a good homemade cookie, I decided I had to try them. That, and I had some company coming that I wanted to have something sweet for (thank you Rachel and Katie for being my guinea pigs!).


I read the comments about this recipe before I started and everyone complained about the cookies spreading and being really flat. So I cut back on the butter by about a 1/4 stick. Mine still spread quite a bit, but they turned out pretty good! I baked mine for the minimum amount of time (10 mins.) and thought they probably only needed about 9, since my edges were just a tad darker than I'd have liked. They were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Overall, a solid chocolate chip cookie! We all enjoyed them!

If you'd like to make Dorie's chocolate chip cookies yourself, the recipe can be found on Kait's Plate.

They look thicker than mine so I'll have to try cutting back on the butter. My guinea pigs loved them too!

Mine were pretty flat, but they were chewy and I liked them a lot. Yours look great - good idea to cut back on the butter!

Kaitlin said...

Yes, these definitely needed some tweaking. But I'm glad you enjoyed the end result! Thanks so much for baking with me.

They look fabulous! Great idea to cut back on the butter; some people added ore flour, but I think your solution makes more sense.

Yours look perfect...they don't look like they spread at all. Beautiful!

Looks like cutting back on the butter worked, they look great! What a nice treat for your friends.

Glad you found some chocolate chip cookie love. I'll have to try them sometime with less butter, maybe a little more flour.

I guess adding the extra flour is the trick. Will have to try them that way next time.

Yours look yummy!

I had the same problem with mine spreading even with cutting the butter. Glad you had good testers! :)

Your cookies turned out great - so neat and pretty. Mine were all kinds of shapes, but they tasted good!

Cathy said...

Glad you enjoyed these! My tasters really loved them. I think "solid" is a great word for these!

I made them today and cut the butter also. While the cookies still spread they I cut the cooking time and they were great.
