Light or Dark?
There are two types of people in this world: those that like their chocolate chip cookie light & soft & chewy and those that like them dark & crispy.
For me there is a perfect time to pull the chocolate chip cookie out of the oven. It’s when the edges are firm, the chocolate is gooey and the center is still a little under-baked. As the cookies sit on the tray outside the oven they still bake a bit longer so that the middle becomes just done.
My friend Kim likes her cookies dark and crispy. Beyond crispy. She likes them 3-days-stale so she can break them into chunks and dunk them in her coffee.
At The Little Daisy we’ve had a few times when the cookies have gone darker than we’d like. We put them out to sell at a discount with a sign that they are DARK. A few people buy them just because they’re at a discount but a number of people buy them because that’s the way they like them.
Which side are you on? Team Light & Chewy or Team Dark & Crispy?
