I tend to experiment a lot with my baking. I break some cooking rules, I change too many things at one time, and sometimes I have to cross my fingers when I make things! I have had my share of mistakes and inedible bricks, but sometimes mistakes can turn into something better (or at least different).
Today I had my heart set on making chocolate chip cookies, but with my first batch the batter was too thin. I didn’t want to waste my batter, so I poured it into a bar pan and made Chocolate Chip Blondies instead, which turned out delicious!
I still wanted chocolate chip cookies, so, I ventured to fix the recipe by making the batter less runny, but I had used up my chocolate chips with my first batch. I decided to forge ahead with the recipe and see what came of it. The resulting recipe still didn’t have the soft texture I wanted and had no chocolate chips, but was still yummy and inspiring in it’s own way. Hence, Honey-Crisp Sandwich Cookies were born.
Eventually I will make my own delicious Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. But for now, there will be 2 posts and 2 recipes courtesy of my baking blunders. The recipes are very similar, with small ingredient variations and baking methods for completely different results. Enjoy!
