oozing vs. chunky

Tonight I made breakfast cookies for the Bistro and my first batch spread and oozed like my post-baby belly in pre-baby jeans. Why does this happen? Perhaps the insane heat and humidity are taking a toll. It is, after all 80 degrees in my kitchen with the air conditioner on. I made them again and I melted the butter a wee bit first, added a little more flour and oats and all turned out well. The mysteries of baking.

Do you prefer the oozing flat cookies or the chunky ones?

  1. Kristen - I found your blog! And now I plan to follow it! The Sugar logo looks great - very classy. From a fellow baker and childhood friend who's never made a batch of cookies that turned out the same way twice...

  2. Thanks so much, Yolanda! I value your feedback, friend!
