I was doing a little research regarding the problem of the famous chocolate chip cookie recipe that Ruth Graves Wakefield baked up by accident in 1937 spreading too flat for me when I bake them. I love
Allrecipes Brand Ambassador our December activities included baking, rating, reviewing and photographing 2 recipes using Nestle's Dark Chocolate Chips so I thought to myself this would be as good a time as any to try what I learned.
Searching the internet for an answer I came across a wonderful blog written by
Rachael aka Fuji Mama. Rachael notes to decrease the butter by 1/2. She discovered this from a "tweet" posted by
Chris Garboski @nestlefoodie who is head of Nestle HQ test kitchens in SoCal. Please visit
Fuji Mama's blog @
http://www.lafujimama.com/2010/03/nestlefoodies-toll-house-chocolate-chip-cookies-better-than-the-original-shhh-dont-tell/< for the full story, wonderful read and recipe.
I am happy and delighted to say that I baked the Original-Nestle-Toll-House-Dark-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie recipe decreasing the butter by 1/2 and baked a beautiful and full chocolate chip cookie without compromising the taste or quality. My cookies were lightly
crisp on the outside and somewhat soft and gooey on the inside. Perfect! My sincere gratitude to these ladies and to
all who share their secrets, experiences, recipes and love of cooking with others so willingly ... may you receive back what you so graciously give.
