Assalamu’alaikum warahmatullah. Greetings!
Throughout Ramadhan, I embarked on a new hobby called “recording random videos, speeding them up and posting them on Facebook”. I’ve always loved timelapses, and although sped-up videos are not quite timelapse photography (which consist of still photos), it’s close enough.
So. One of the videos was this:
Now I don’t intend to cross-post everything that I post on Facebook on this blog, but since it’s a blog, there’s this ability and space to type sooooo much more to go with the video…~ Ahem. I guess I can mention a few cookie-baking tips (basic stuff, stuff that I tell the Weekenders who found themselves in charge of baking cookies for the first time with little kiddos):
End of tips. The cookies above are the peanut butter oatmeal ones. But seriously, it might be a Cookie Law, that no matter how many times you use the same recipe, there is always a possibility for the cookies to turn out different each time.
Another recipe I frequently use is Crispy Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, which, again — sometimes they turn out too crispy/hard, other times chewy. It must be the circle of life.
Anyway, I am no expert, just a hobbyist (in fact the two recipes are pretty much the only stuff I bake regularly ), so feel free to share your favourite recipes and tips. I tend to bake (and definitely tend to cook) more in the UK — Malaysia’s kitchens get way too hot and humid.
