The kids and I really enjoyed these, they were just the kind of cookie texture I love, soft and a little puffy, slightly chewy with some crunch from the Whoppers and the chocolate chips giving you something to sink your teeth into. I had no problems with this recipe, it was fun to make and the resulting cookies were delicious to eat.
How could you not love these ingredients? Thanks, amazon, around here malted milk powder is hard to find, I don't think I've ever even had it before, unless at a milkshake in a restaurant, have to love that amazon grocery!
Glad I got to use my little food processor! I've been feeling a little guilty lately, after I broke down and got a 14 cup model my little one (4 cup I think) doesn't get used that much.
I also got an excuse to use my new Oxo Kitchen Scale, which I love! It's my first kitchen scale, and I'm so happy to have it, now I can tackle some European recipes and weight conversions :)
My husband liked them but didn't really like the Whoppers baked into the cookies, because of the way they changed texture while baking and got kind of hard, I'm sure you guys know what I'm talking about so I won't try to explain it any better. Even though he is a Whopper fan these cookies weren't a favorite for him.
My first cookie sheet out of the oven were a touch under done, and tasted WAY too sweet. The rest of the cookies I let cook a little longer, between 13-14 minutes. After they cooled and were stored at room temperate overnight I think they were at their peak of flavor -- if cookies have such a thing. They were not too sweet any more, and you could actually tell there were Whoppers in there, right after baking you really weren't sure what was in the cookies unless you knew the title of the recipe and ingredient list.
I think these would be even better if you just left the Whoppers out of the cookie dough, frosted the cookies, then sprinkled the crushed up Whoppers on top. I know the extra frosting would make these really decadent, but if you're going to eat one of these you should be in a decadent mood to begin with.
Thank you Rachel of Confessions of a Tangerine Tart , who chose this delicious cookie recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie! These are just the kind of cookies I love to bake, they are fun, and even if this is not a "must make again" recipe (for us, I'm sure some of you will be making these over and over) they were delicious and happily eaten by my little family. Baking and trying new recipes is so much fun, and it's recipes like this, that have you think "whoa, I bet those will be amazing" just by the title, gets any baker excited about being in the kitchen!
