alton brown would be appalled
I'm making chocolate chip cookies for the first time in forever. I don't have enough all-purpose flour for two batches, but I have lots of bread flour. I needed 2.25 cups per batch, so I used 1.25 cups of all-purpose and 1 cup of bread flour. Then I completely screwed up combining the ingredients, mixing the dry goods and then adding the wet. The batter was kind of loose, but it seems that the cookies are okay. The batter tastes good, at any rate. ;-)

The last pan is in the oven, and then I'm going to make another batch.

Alton would be appalled, but I pulled it out.

i feel: busy busy

He wouldn't be appalled by the bread flour, at least:)

In cookies? Too much protein! They taste good, though, and I actually had enough all purpose for the second batch.

I think you get points for improvising.

(I'm not so much of a baker that I keep two types of flour, so we use bread flour in everything.)

He would make his own flour using two flat rocks. ;-P
