chocolate chip cookies first try
hey you guys , here is my first attempt to make chocolate chip cookies .
i used this recipe
except i changed some stuff that i am about to tell you
i used all brown sugar , and instead of 2 grams baking soda i used 9 grams of baking powder . my batter was harder than the one in the youtube video , i don't know exactly why . i also didn't have vanilla extract so i used 1/2 tsp powder vanilla powder or around maybe one gram or so . i used 225 grams of chocolate chunks , but i dont know , that seems to be a lot of chocolate for this recipe .
here is how the batter looked like , it looked way different from the one in the video i have no idea why , i left it rest for 30 min in the refrigerator :
i used one table spoon for each cookie a bit more or less , then i shaped the balls with hand and put them on the tray . here is what happens in the oven , they seems to be melting nicely , around them got brown and the aroma was amazing , i left them around 14 min the in 180 C degree oven . third level at the bottom .
here is the pic of when they are done ,
i let them cool down for about an hour or so ... then tried one of them . here is how the back side looks like :
Overall , the taste was sweet , buttery and not as crunchy as i wanted , the middle of the cookie was soft and it tasted way too chocolaty ( i am not sure if i am right or wrong on that part ) . i didn't feel any bitterness because of the baking powder that i used instead of baking soda . and i guess my cookies was too big . . .
please let me know what do you think ? what am i doing wrong ? please let me know if you have any suggestions , guide me .
Thank you all .
