Slept till 10, still in bed, fired up the netbook, made some potstickers for lunch at about noon-thirty and then gathered up the chocolate chip cookie fixings and made 6 dozen while watching the Army-Navy game. Even though I mixed them by hand and tried all different kinds of temperature settings, they all came out too fluffy again. I'll put my recipe behind there cut - if anyone has any clues on how to make them less fluffy using different amounts of the same ingredients, I'd be much obliged.
1.5 cups margarine
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
3 tsp vanilla extract
4 whole eggs
24 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
3 cups chopped walnuts
Notes: all mixing is done by hand. Keep the chocolate chips refrigerated or frozen until adding them to the mix. Preheat oven to 375°.
Melt margarine in a large ceramic mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, baking soda, salt, vanilla, eggs. Mix in the flour until it is a smooth batter with no lumps. Add walnuts and chocolate chips. Mix thoroughly.
Using a soup spoon or tablespoon and spatula, drop round dollops of batter onto a non-stick cookie sheet. 1 dozen per standard sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes @ 375° or 10-12 minutes @ 350°
Wanted to see Planet 51, but the last showing at my local theater was at 4:30. Time to watch the Netflix rentals, I guess.
