Two of our grandsons had chocolate bars to sell for their school..Instead of going door to door..our daughter set up a table at the corner of her street..with the boys so they could sell them there:)
It was so cute..2 young neighbors helped too.. a beautiful young girl..(take my word:) ) and her equally cute brother..I think the kids had fun..and the mom is to be commended.. all afternoon:)!
Even with a grandad across the street..
Let's just say he bought a few:)
Anyways Jacques' wonderfulness at being a very special grandad that buys 8 chocolate bars paid off..I made him cookies..
some w/ the dark chocolate and some with milk chocolate that both my daughter and I prefer..
I was looking for a recipe..that made cookies..in the shape of a hockey puck..I have tons of chocolate chip cookie recipes..but none that look like hockey pucks..Les Moulins Lafayette..a bakery I like..sells their cookies in that shape..they form them in logs..cut and bake and they stay exactly that shape..That's what I wanted..
I Googled recipes of cookies that you refrigerate in a log and slice and bake..and when I read the directions..that said cut 3/4 of an inch thick..I don't know why but I thought these would be them..
These cookies spread..I was disappointed..until I had a bite..see the bite?
These are so good..Jacques loved them..
So a mishap ended up actually giving me a new terrific chocolate chip cookie recipe..
I ♥ vanilla bean paste and put that in..
They are a David Lebovitz recipe..
Not terribly photogenic for me..but so good!
Not sure about reprinting one of his recipes..but I did find it here and it says it had permission..So in lieu of doing a wrong thing..you can find the recipe here..
Mine spread a lot more but in this case it was not a bad thing:)
So..instead of me trying every new chocolate chip cookie recipe I can find..does anyone have a recipe that the cookie would look like a hockey puck?:)
I would love to find one..
