Take your pick: chocolate cookies with cherry frosting or cherry cookies with chocolate chip frosting?
So, I’m just a teeny bit obsessive when it comes to certain things. Like making sure the doors are closed, oven is off. & like cabinets are closed, lights are off. But where I really go crazy is with matters of baking/ general food prep.
For starters, when I make my salads, I always use a scale to measure out exactly 60 grams of spinach (or whatever size salad I’m going to have) and each topping has a specific measurement, too. This all stemmed from wanting as much control over calories as possible.
The same thing goes for baking. At least with cookies because I can have control of the weight of each cookie. Muffins are a little trickier because even if you scoop the same amount there can be variations. (enter my invention: the muffin tin scale. Anyone know if something like this exists?)
I don’t weigh all my cookies, especially if I’m in a rush, but I do if I’m making sandwich cookies. These were a spur of the moment creation. Although they didn’t turn out quite how I planned, they were still pretty delicious. So, the question is – do you prefer your cherries in your frosting or in your cookie? & do you prefer your chocolate chips in your cookie or in your frosting? Pick and then give at least one of these cherry cookies a try!
