I don't bake in the spring and summer. It's too hot here. I give it a try in the fall and winter. One of
my favorite things to bake is chocolate chip cookies. I baked these this week.
I use the recipe right off the package and I tried these new
dark chocolate chips from Nestles.
I have a secret ingredient of my own. I put in a little instant espresso coffee. I think it gives the
cookies a richer taste. I bought the mini ice cream scoop new last week at my supermarket.
It was $12.00. I tried to find one cheaper on-line. It wasn't there. The tin I found at Walmart
for $1.00. I just added one teaspoon of the instant espresso coffee as I thought the dark
chocolate morsels would add to the richness of the cookie, too.
I add just a few chopped walnuts. It's my personal taste.
I got four dozen cookies plus 5 with the mini scoop. In this photo there are a few missing as
I sampled them.
Are you planning to bake this fall and if so what are your favoites?
