Inventing Cookie Recipes
I've always been pretty great at any kind of cookie recipe but I want to actually create my own. I've been going online and trying to figure out the science of it. The first cookies were completely flat. The second recipe (completely different type) were more like a cake batter. I ended up cooking them in a muffin pan to keep them from spreading. I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I think what caused the difference between the two was that the first, the butter was melted and the fat to flour ratio was WAY off. I've adjusted it but haven't been able to test it yet. As for the second, it has 1/2 cup lime juice and 1/4 cup lemon juice. I wanted that taste but it's made it very liquid-like. I tried adding extra flour but it still isn't a cookie.
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! Thank you!
