Choc chip cookies, oven temp?
Ok I'll admit, I don't bake that much though I really like it.
I just made choc chip cookies for the first time in a long time and they are coming out more cakey than I like.
They are sort of standing up, not melting into a flatter chewy cookie.
I moved to a different state recently and am in an apt.
I figured the oven temp was off and tried to check it with a digital temp thing I have, long bent metal spike with a long wire but I don't think I know how to get a good read on that either. It kept moving up and down, then would go to HI, plus trying to wait for the oven to catch up or cook down wasn't working.
Any ideas on the cakey cookies? It did seem like the batter was sort of dry or stiff. I double checked the directions. 2 sticks of butter, 2 eggs, etc.
Maybe too much flour? Or could it be the oven temp?
Anyway, they were pretty bad, i threw them into the woods for the racoons:)
