Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies
First post 20th June 2015 Saturday
Edit 11th September 2015 Saturday:
Preheat the microwave oven to 200 deg C.
KP bought a microwave oven when our toaster oven was spoilt. I've been meaning to try baking cookies with it. One day I came back from work early (left around 6pm) and we were done with dinner and stuff before 8pm. So I made cookies.
This recipe I found is really fantastic. It's simple and delicious. I decreased the sugar but it was still a tad too sweet for my taste. The temperature was a total disaster in my case. In the end I tweaked it to 200 deg C for 20 minutes. Pretty sure if it were lower it would be more soft and chewy, but I was impatient by the time the first batch was finally done that I just want to make it quick.
I thought it was not very good and almost didn't want to document it but a few people said it's nice. So here goes.
Edit: below is the recipe with less sugar and it still tastes pretty good. I also did it at 180 deg C for 20 min.
Next time I'll try with oil as substitute for the butter.
