I normally consider myself a reasonably good cook. Only once (that I remember) in my married life have I created something inedible. Around Christmas time a few years ago, I made ginger snaps that turned out so rock hard that even the dog wouldn't eat them!! Then came Wednesday, I believe that my inedible count went up to 2.
Sometime over the past year or so, I misplaced my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe (if you have a good one, let me know!!), so I looked up a recipe online. I found one that was "chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies." I had no desire to put oatmeal in them...we're not really oatmeal cookie people. I figured I'd just leave it out, and we'd have chewy chocolate chip cookies.
Boy, was I wrong!!! Here is the result:
I quickly added more flour to the remaining dough and I managed to salvage a few decent cookies.
In the end, all that really matters is that the dough tasted REALLY good. ;)
