I used to make cookies a lot as a child and somewhat in college...and then again last night. I saw a bag of Nestle chocolate and peanut butter chips and had a craving
I followed the recipe on the bag and they turned out terrible. The dough was good, but the basically just melted on the sheet. Turned a dark brown, almost burnt look. Greasy. Just not good. Wish I had pictures. It's like they didn't rise. Despite the appearance though, they're at least not horribly bad tasting.
But what did I do wrong? Is it just a bad recipe? I tried freezing the dough for the last batch thinking it would hold up longer...no good. But I want them "meaty." Thick and lightly golden brown.
