Have I mentioned that I LOVE my stand mixer yet? :) Here is an attempt at my famous chocolate chip cookies. There's something weird with the flour out here, or maybe it's the altitude difference. I notice it in cakes, I notice it in bread, and I notice it most in these cookies. Back east, these cookies would not rise, at all. They were no higher than the height of a chocolate chip. Out here on the west coast, they rise, every single time. And they don't stay soft and chewy for days like back east.. they go a little harder and crunchy.. eventually turning into a store bought completely crunchy cookie. Anyone with any suggestions.. much appreciated. :) I took a few pictures. They still taste right.. mmmm sooo good.
