I once again tried to make chocolate chip cookies. And once again I failed. Miserably. What do I keep doing wrong?? This time around I followed this recipe, but I did one thing differently which may be the reason why the cookies flopped. The recipe called for melted butter, but my butter was super soft, but not liquid. Maybe that’s why they did not come out right? Nevertheless, they tasted okay and because the first batch did not come out looking perfectly bumpy (I like my chocolate chip cookies to look bumpy), I decided to instead flatten out the dough and cut them into round shapes. I also used holiday themed chocolate chips (white, green and red).
