One of my favorite cookie recipe, OK the truth is that it's my favorite cookie recipe is for the 1, 2, 3 cookies. One of my sons would do almost anything for them. The key to making them is to have a kitchen scale and to weigh each of the three basic ingredients to make sure that
- for every 100 grams of sugar, or 4 oz you have
- twice as much of melted no salt baking margarine
- three times as much flour
- Mix all the ingredients, doubled, tripled etc.
- spread packed on a lined baking pan and bake in medium heat
- cut immediately after taking out of the oven
I was stuck, but I'm too stubborn and determined and risk-taking creative to let that minor/major problem to stop me when I'm trying to make my grown up kids happy. To get 900 grams of flour I just poured from a 1 kilo (which is 1,000 grams) bag and left a bit in the bag. I then poured what seemed to be less than a half of a bag of brown sugar, since 333 grams is a bit less than 500 grams. I added a couple of eggs and enough oil until I got the right consistency. And I added lots of cinnamon.
Then I baked it as usual. Sorry, but I don't have a picture. And the final result was that they didn't even notice the difference. It tasted exactly like they remembered. If I hadn't told them that I had made a change, nobody would have known.
