There’s this soda shop here that sells cookies. My favorite is a chocolate chip cookie with pecans and plenty of coconut.
I’ve been going there with my co-workers, because this cookie is my obsession. It’s so fantastic.
So I set out to re-create the cookie at home. Naturally. Because that’s what I do.
My first attempt was not that great. I wanted a big, substantial cookie, so I went to a recipe I used several years ago. But it called for only 1 stick of butter and a whopping 4 cups of flour. I suspect this out-of-whack ratio is what made the cookies taste kind of bland.
