Soft chocolate chip cookies

I told you about my favorite soft chocolate chip cookies recipe a few weeks ago.  I bake it often and it's one of my favorite recipes. After my post, Michelle of Une-deux senses introduced me to another soft chocolate chip cookie recipe. 


The recipe looked so promising that I decided to try it out to see how it compared to my favorite soft chocolate chip cookie recipe.

The dough, like most cookie dough, was easy to put together. I didn't even use a mixer. Of course I didn't carefully read the recipe, so I didn't realize I was supposed to refrigerate the dough overnight until I got to the step. Normally I don't have patience to refrigerate dough for so long, but since I had already gotten so far, I had no choice but to wait.

The next morning, the dough was hard, making it hard to scoop up and shape. I expected the dough to flatten out when baked, much like the beautiful little cookies Michelle made, but my cookies barely flattened, instead remaining puffy.

I don't mind puffy cookies, but the cookies I made didn't take much of a cookie shape, instead the final result was very similar to the raw cookie dough.  The cookies did come out nice and soft. I liked these cookies, but I still like my other recipe slightly better. I only made half the amount, so I don't know how long these cookies stay soft since they were all gone the same day. This is a pretty good recipe though and it's one I would make again. I'll have to figure out how to make them come out prettier next time.
