So we’ve been on a quest for a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe. Most of the ones that you get out of books are good but we were looking for a great one. Even going and getting cookies from bakeries they came up a little short. We’ve looked and looked all over the internet and finally found a great chocolate chip cookie recipe. We only changed it a little. Since we are at high altitude it is really important to add more structure to your cookies, meaning you need to add more flour. If you are at sea level just take half a cup of flour out of the recipe. There are a lot of chocolate chips in this recipe but it turns out really good. Photos are Below. You should definitely try these Chocolate Chip Cookies. They are awesome.
I like trying new recipes. I have friends with the same world view.
One of my friends tried these Lemon White Chocolate Cookies, and made a huge “mistake”.
She was making these cookies for the first time and read the ingredient list wrong. Instead of 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice, she put in 1 Tablespoon of lemon extract. Yep, you read right, lemon extract. The cookies turned out with a very strong lemon flavor with the white chocolate smoothing it out. For those of us who like lemon it was actually really good. The next time she made them, she decided to follow the recipe because if they turned out good with the extract they should be good with the right ingredients, right? Wrong! They were okay, I guess. Kind of bland with no real depth to them. Nothing special.
So she went back to the book, scratched out juice and wrote in extract. Now I have a great lemon cookie recipe because she didn’t read the recipe right. I don’t put in the nuts because some people are weird and don’t like nuts in cookies but if you want to try it the recipe recommends walnuts or cashews. I hope you enjoy these Lemon White Chocolate Cookies as much as I do!
This recipe was adapted from the book Nestle Collection. It’s an awesome book, and fairly inexpensive on amazon (I think it’s out of print).
