so worried about the cookies. What if they don’t spread in the oven? Was the baking soda OK? Did I combine everything right? Argh. 11 mins
In the meantime, trying to do things like cook rather than fall apart into stress. It’s lower than yesterday but it spikes a lot.
Cookies did not spread. They are instead tiny chocolate chip cakes. This is not that bad of an outcome but I wonder what went wrong.
Another batch at 25ºF less (it is a tiny oven, so it tends to be more intense heat-wise), with bigger cookie scoops rather than teaspoons.
Conclusion after observing 2nd batch and reading recipe again, which calls for “ice cream scoops” rather than teaspoons: they don’t spread.
Other thought as I munch on what appears to be a cross between chocolate chip and russian tea cookies: maybe there wasn’t enough liquid.
My these are potent cookies. Very good with vanilla almond milk. Am sure it would go with any milk actually. Cookies & milk. I missed it so!
The baked GF DF EF chocolate chip cookies that do not spread. They do inflate a little. http://lockerz.com/s/273857270
I discovered that the baking soda is past its date (12/12/12, har har), so that’s a very possible reason why the cookies did not spread.
I’m crying and I can’t stop. I’m so damn scared.
