BIU: Perfect Cookies by DaynaEMCraig BIU: Perfect Cookies by DaynaEMCraig
Whew! Churning them out today.

This one's for the lovely @ananasjihad, I did say I'd make him cookies. You can use any chocolate you like, but he's going to be making this with MILKA chocolate. The kind in the purple wrapper. Get down the shops, smellyface. <3

And it's really neat how you use butter ... I guess the sugar must thicken it, because butter cookies are usually a pain in the butt since you have to refrigerate the dough and shape the dough and refrigerate it some more etc etc to keep them from flattening out in the oven. Yay for easy butter cookies!

oh also, I meant to write, I think this kind of thing is perfectly suited for a DD. I know a lot of people who would enjoy seeing simple recipes on a pretty background!
I think its a fantastic idea to share your recipes this way, and congrats on the DD!

Mm, I suppose you're right, but I still think it's a bit odd.

Though I do like the colour scheme and simple design. Also I really like the informal way its written, it's like you're there in person, explaining every little important detail, which most cooking-books fail at (at least the ones I read).

Thanks! I agree about cooking and recipe books - they expect you to know the techniques already. Creaming? Folding? Um, what? They're nearly as bad as sewing patterns. I think this puts a lot of people off cooking when really, once you know what the words mean (and they're never all that complex), you can do pretty much anything in the kitchen.

Don't ever melt your butter. Cookie recipes depend on a semi-solid state of butter to suspend the sugar molecules until a certain point in the baking process. By using melted butter, rather than softened, you have unknowingly changed the composition of the cookie and this will fail to provide structure for the baking cookie.

:giggle: I know, but it works! My current go-to cake recipe requires melted butter as well, along with half a cup of boiling water. They turn out fine, though I have no idea how. However, as this is the second comment to say so - do you think creaming the butter and the sugar together would be neat-o to try? I'll give it a go!

I found one other recipe that specifically called for melted butter.
Knowing what happens to butter and sugar on a molecular level makes me think that the recipe would be better with softened butter, creamed into the sugar, rather than melted butter. I think what might be fun, is to do it both ways, and see them side by side. :)
