October 23rd – Cookies and meringue

Today we made nasty cookies.  They were super dry and flavorless.  I think the problem might be that they called for melted chocolate instead of cocoa powder.  Every recipe I’ve ever made with melted chocolate has had issues.  We also made meringues.  The thing to remember about meringues is that if you don’t get them to stiff peaks they’ll melt or collapse when you bake them off.  No good.  It’s important to have patience when you whip them.
