For our CM February Challenge the subject this month was Food Photography! I’m often asked “how do you make such awesome Chocolate Chip Cookies”… so here are the answers:
Start with fabulous ingredients… Tillamook butter (always at room temperature), real Nestle chocolate chip cookies and Walnuts! And as for the recipe… there is only one recipe to follow and that is the Toll House recipe right on the back of the Nestle’s bag!
When it comes to making cookies … there’s no doubt about it… my KitchenAid mixer is the only way to go. I LOVE that mine is on a stand that pops up from under my cabinet and when I’m done I just release 2 levers and it springs back down under my island! NIFTY, huh?
Onto a Silpat baking sheet. Costco had these for sale at Christmas time this year… if you ever see these – grab them fast! They make baking a delight!
375 degrees for 11 minutes or until golden brown. Check to make sure! And just for those of you looking really really close. This is me with the timer in one hand and Off-camera flash inside of my oven! Practing my OCF skills! And NO the oven was off at the time!
Cookies are always served best with a glass of milk.
This blog post is dedicated to my wonderful Mom who always had cookies ready for me when I got home from school as a child. Even when she worked long days I always knew there would be cookies in the cookie jar.
And to Gretchen… even though she is gone… the “You are Special Today” plate tradition will live on for future generations!\
