|Chocolate Chip Meltaways|
So on Christmas Day, I was at my mom's. I'd brought a big bag that had the Apple-Peeler-Corer-Slicer and all of my ingredients for the three cookies. I knew that I wouldn't actually be able to bake the cookies at Mom's because of issues with the oven door swelling and sticking once the oven was hot, but I could mix up the dough. So I did. We had to improvise where to attach the apple slicer since I'd forgotten to bring the stand it goes with. So I clamped it to the side of the bar and got to work.
I got home around 8:15 that night. Turned the oven on so I could bake the cookies. I did have to be at work the next day. I spooned the applesauce cookies onto the baking stone. Put them in the oven, and when I took them out 10 minutes later, they looked right. So I moved them to a cooling rack and got the sugar mixtures ready for the snickerdoodles and the chocolate chip meltaways. I was tired and was only going to bake about 12-15 of each. The rest of the dough could sit in the freezer. I got them ready and put them in the oven. When I took them out, I was very impressed with how they turned out. They had expanded more than usual, but they looked how they were supposed to. The two pictures are of the meltaways and the snickerdoodles. So I sampled them. Surprisingly, all three tasted pretty good.
I packaged them up and took them to my friend's house the next day. She loved them! So did her family. But I learned the lesson of not sampling gluten free cookie dough!
