In today's recent recipe I tried a take on one of dayvisson's favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes, but didn't have all the ingredients...so I substituted! and didn't really measure a few things I should have...
In all fairness, i think i could have saved it had a REALLY not been lazy...HOWEVER, the cookies turned out more like "cake" or those cake cookies you make from the box. I substituted 1/2 C butter and 1/2 C apple sauce where it should have been 1 C JUST shortening...
BUT in my defense, they taste like cookies. They smell like cookies. They even LOOK like cookies, but they are no where near THE cookies.
AND if you haven't heard about allrecipes.com ...well u should. Because it's awesome.
AND if u haven't heard about an AWESOME and FUN read, check out Ellyn Satter's The Secret to Feeding a Healthy Family...GREAT book and recommended by Dr. Brown, Dr. Christensen, and I feel like a ton of nutrition professors at BYU. SUPER.
