    Favourite cookie has gotta be the Cookie Dump – chocolate chocolate chip baked just enough to be slightly crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. Yummy!

    It has been over four years since I’ve eaten a cookie, they’re just not my thing to eat. But to make, that’s a totally different story! That said, the first recipe I memorized, at age six, was my great grandmother’s oatmeal cookie recipe. It is made to bend to the whim and pantry contents of the baker, becoming oatmeal chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, sometimes with cinnamon, maybe nuts, but the glory is in the balance of sugars and detailed instructions. It never fails to produce flawless, chewy cookies with crisp edges, perfect amount of rise and spread, and- my favorite part- the most delicious dough.

    Maria, want to try your chocolate toffee almond cookies from the book. I can’t find hershey’s special dark cocoa. Better to use Droste dutch processed? Or a natural cocoa like hershey’s or ghirardelli? Re the toffee bits, do you use the heath bits that also have milk chocolate or the bits of brickle without? Finally, do you use blanched or roasted almonds? and salted or unsalted? Thanks so much!

    • Two Peas replied: — August 2nd, 2012 @ 3:33 pm

      You can use Dutch process cocoa. I have used both of the toffee bits. I usually do the Heath bits with chocolate though. I use blanched almonds, unsalted. Although, both would work! I love sweet and salty:)
