I made some chocolate chip cookies today and it was an interesting experiment. I had already made some batches at the house of some friends which turned out tasty or so I was told. But a beloved family member at home bought these fancy scales and I used the wrong unit, so instead of measuring grammes I chose another unit, which resulted in my using too much maple syrup. :-D The family member who tasted the dough still thought it wasn't bad, bless him, so I put the stuff in the oven and now they remind me of these 'chatting heads' as we call them in Dutch (kletskoppen). The cookies (more crumbles than cookies) still taste good, believe it or not, but the chocolate chips are nowhere to be found!

I will make another batch very soon, because if they turn out well I can give them to family and friends, or as a friend said in times such as these it's nice to make people happy with one's cookies.

I made my third batch of chocolate chip cookies yesterday and my kids seem to like them. They even had some of my second batch, though they were not that good. Also, a few friends sampled the second batch and thought they were tasty.

Being European, I am still struggling with cups, so I used a converter site, but ended up using too much maple syrup in the second batch.

For the third batch I used too little (about 56 grammes), so kids suggested adding just a tiny bit more. Also, I used ordinary chocolate as I couldn't find 'baking chocolate' as we used to call it, special bars of chocolate that don't melt so quickly?

Onwards and upwards!
