Is there anything more delicious to look forward to than a cup of tea and fresh out of the oven cookies? I think the heck not!
When I make cookies, I want the recipe to be quick and easy so I can get those cookies in my stomach as fast as possible! *Queue cookie monster*
I’m honestly drooling thinking about making and eating these cookies. These cookies are just SO amazing! The orange and the white chocolate is perfect…the orange is subtle enough but compliments the creamy white chocolate so perfectly. They are by far my absolute favourite cookie. This is straight up my go to cookie!
This is so bad, but sometimes I eat probably the equivalent of 2 cookies worth of batter…I just can’t help it okay!
Now listen, I love soft, chewy cookies. I’m not into the tooth busting crunchy cookies (unless it’s biscotti…!)….okay fine I love all cookies…but I do have a strong preference for the soft, chewy ones. And I am a firm believer that the trick to making them that way is by using a combination of white sugar AND brown sugar, making sure the dough is chilled (also prevents too much spreading!) and of course, I slightly under bake my cookies.
As far as actually baking…I can wholeheartedly say that I miss my parents convection oven…ahhh mom and dad please let me steal your oven! But none the less, not opening the oven is always best for cookies! Also remember to use parchment paper so the bottom of your cookies down get too brown…although I do prefer my silicone baking mat (both of these also make the dreaded cleanup easy!) You can get them cheap at Walmart! https://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/starfrit-silicone-baking-mat/6000196139570
Fine fine, that’s enough of me blabbing on about these cookies, time to get baking and more importantly, eating!
