Chocolate chip catastrophe
Nothing smells as good as a batch of freshly baked cookies. The smells of vanilla essence and brown sugar can take us back to happier times when our mom would prepare a batch for us right after school. However, mom made cookies the right way, as in she used a sheet pan to keep the pastries from becoming a disaster.
Before we try anything new, it’s generally a good idea to look at what others have to say on the matter online. There’s no credible cookie recipe that says throw your dough into a preheated oven. You need to portion them out on a baking sheet before popping it in. You live, you learn.
