It being Teacher Appreciation Week at Joey’s school, we spent the evening making cookies. We of course made molasses crinkles (“ginger cookies” to the uninitiated), trying both the Grandma’s Molasses recipe amount of ginger, and our modified version. It was unanimously agreed that our version was superior (also, we use butter instead of shortening, because butter).
Next up were chocolate chip cookies. The Toll House recipe is a classic, and pretty good, but empirical research has shown the Ghirardelli recipe (with Ghirardelli semi-sweet chips) to be better, and some experimentation has improved upon it even further. We are pleased to present our new standard chocolate chip cookie recipe.
