Chocolate chip cookies

Post by ChrisGreaves »

So, I've been taking batches of Ginger Snap cookies to Writers Coop, in an attempt to shift my weight-gain onto an unsuspecting crowd. It is a partial success, because we are all putting on weight.
I switched to Oatmeal cookies with Thompsons Raisins, which had the effect of a very attractive young lady stalking me through the Toronto Reference Library and cornering me on the stairs(!) to demand a second helping.
We chatted as we walked (well, I scurried) towards the entrance, and she asked, smiling sweetly, for there was a double-dose of C12H22O11 in the batch, "So, what are you bringing next week", and like the be-sotted idiot that I am I responded with a question "I dunno; what's your favourite?". Chocolate-Chip, she said, and I've never attempted to make them before, so I didn't go back to Writers Coop the next Sunday but stayed home, experimenting.

I figured that with a little practice I could do better than that:-

It's the syntax that's causing me problems. We are talking about the Writers Co-operative after all, and they are a picky and (sick)pednatic(sic) bunch.

It is "Chocolate CHIP cookies", isn't it?
Is it wrong to use more than one chip?
Could I get away with hiding the chips completely inside the cookies?
Does anyone care?
Or for that matter, does anyone caries?

I love those second batch faces!

You could always go the whole hog and do Chocolate Fish and Chip Cookies.
Or should that be "the whole cod"?

Surely because baking persons are not trained in grammar, one should describe these entities as
Chocolate-chip Cookies?

Hyphens are so very useful... "Dash it," I say!

From the images that Chris has posted, most of them appear to be a "Chocolate Kiss" cookie.
The brown smile seems to from a single Heresy Kiss and not chips which are a lot smaller, like the ones used for the eyes.

Hang about! I are so too trained in grammar and I is a baking person (although since I didn't shred the chocolate block I can be described as a person-non-grater).
I did capitalize on the chip part, it's true, but my point is that I did hyph-enate!

OK.
Just let me know your ETA at YYZ.

P.S. I hate to be pedantic, but if I stuck a small nut, wouldn't that be a noisette?

Just askin' ...

Not about this. My shoulders are already burdened with chips about having to leave Amsterdam, Poissy etc. :glum:

Absolutely correct. I bought two sizes of chips because I wasn't sure which would work better.
At least, that's what I was telling myself in the store.

All joking aside, for my next batch I am thinking of placing the blob of dough on the tray, then sliiiiiiiiding a large chip in sideways and covering it over.
A sort of chocolat-bombe-surprise.
But then, if that works, I'd start sliding large chips into my Ginger Snaps, and where would that take us?

Wait, let me get this straight ...

You said "... so I didn't go back to Writers Coop the next Sunday but stayed home, experimenting."

There was an attractive young lady who was very interested in your cookies and you chose to stay home and bake instead of going to the next meeting?

I'm speechless! :scratch:

It appears this group of yours is more chicken coop than writers co-op, and I know who the biggest chicken in the coop is! :laugh:

Well, PJ, you might be speechless, but I've been burned before.
And not by failing to use the oven mitts!

Now that was quite called for! :laugh: :rofl:
Truth is I use the writer's co-op as guinea-pigs when I am working on a new recipe.
This year the ESL cafe and the folks at Yonge Street Mission asked for cookies, so I have been experimenting with a new method of mixing small batches until I have eight litres or so in plastic tubs, and then spending a day batch-cooking them.

On a related note, my weight-loss diet is working fine; I am gaining only about a pound a week. ....
Cheers
