I am a lazy baker, I admit this. I tend to go back time and again to recipes I love, and that I know won’t fail. After all, why not just keep making the bakes that you enjoy?! But I am making an effort. Really, I am! And so today’s bake was a recipe I have not tried before. Who doesn’t love a crunchy & chewy chocolate chip cookie? And when salted peanuts and peanut butter are added – how could I resist? And of course, I do have a thing for that sweet-and-salty mix.
When I try a recipe for the first time, it can be nerve-wracking, sometimes it works really well, and sometimes I get that uneasy feeling – is this how it is supposed to look? Surely that shouldn’t have happened? That looks wrong, how do I rescue it? But I ploughed on regardless……and lost my concentration, and forgot to take photos….
I wasn’t convinced, I kept checking and re-checking the recipe……I had added all the ingredients…..it said it would make 12 cookies but there didn’t look nearly enough mixture to manage that….
The recipe said it would be a soft batter which would just drop off the spoon….it wasn’t and it didn’t….. But, you know, sometimes you think sod it, I’ve got so far, I’m going to finish this off. And I did.
I ended up with 14 large cookies! They smell divine! They just need to cool off a little bit before they can be eaten.
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I wish you a peaceful weekend 🙂
