Stoichiometric Chocolate Chip Cookies

How’s that for a post title?! ;-)
This past week in Chemistry we’ve been learning about Stoichiometry.
Stoichiometry, for those of you not scientifically inclined, is a branch of Chemistry that deals with the relative quantities of reactants and products in chemical reactions.
Sounds like a total yawn fest, right?!
Well, for the most part it is, but when you get to bake a dozen cookies, get a grade for them, and then have a giant cookie party (complete with hot chocolate!) in your period 3-4 Chemistry class it’s totally worth it.
I made Jennie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies and even though I’m not a “Chocolate Chip Cookie Connosuier” by any means, I had to admit that they were absolutely blissful.
Chewy cookies with a gooey, chocolate-y center. The key is that you actually underbake them a bit! Jennie suggests baking them for 15 minutes (and not a minute more!) but my oven tends to run hot so I took them out after 12 and they were fabulous!
I’m filing these under the “Old Stand-bys” tab in my recipe book.
They may not be the “perfect” Chocolate Chip Cookie, but I’ll say that they’re pretty darn close! I’m already planning on making them for Christmas… :-D
