cookie problem... why crispy when they were chewy?
Posted 20 August 2004 - 03:01 PM
the recipe has 2c ap flour, 1c sugar, 2T cornsyrup, 1c butter, 0.5 tsp bs and 2T vanilla sugar. i cream the butter and sugar together with the cornsyrup then add the remaining sifted ingredients. i ran out of the original vanilla sugar that came from a box (ingredients conf sugar, cornstarch & vanillin) but substituted 10x that has had vanilla beans sitting in it. i paid particular attention to whether i mixed it longer or shorter amount of time... it seemed the same. but it has been gross (hot & humid) outside and i don't have the ac in the kitchen. could this be the problem? any suggestions as to how to fix it?

maybe i'll try refrigerating the dough beforehand. these cookies normally spread but they seem a little fluffier, but i could be imagining things.
the apple trick does work i've used it before although the hubby looked at me crazy the last time i did it.
