Went from Chocolatier on Saturday to being a baker on Sunday. Dozens and Dozens of cookies. It was easy to get a lot done because DietCokeWife and LatteGirl went off to see “The Nutcracker” leaving me to bake in peace.
I Made Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips, Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips with Walnuts, Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chips, Completely Organic Milk Chocolate Chocolate Chips, Sugar Cookies and Anisette Biscuits.
We have been making an effort to incorporate more organic foods into the LatteHome (more on that in another post), but making the completely organic chocolate chips was far more difficult than I first imagined it being, which is why I guess you don’t see any “organic” cookies. Organic chocolate is expensive, well OK, cooking organic is expensive, but organic chocolate is REAL expensive. Organic Sugar and Organic Brown Sugar are not as fine as say regular Domino Sugar and the cookies come out a bit courser than standard Chocolate Chip Cookies. This is not necessarily a bad thing though and the cookies came out quite good… if I do say so myself.
As the week progresses I still have Anisette Cookies, Butter Cookies, Almond Cookies and more chocolate chip cookies to make. I hope I have enough tins for all these cookies.
