Thick Soft Chewy Very-Chocolaty Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

It's late mid-November now. And I can't believe that Christmas is arriving soon. I love Christmas baking and enjoy planning my Christmas baking.

As usual, I will bake lotsa cookies. And in the midst of baking, I will explore many recipes and will share the good recipes that I found.

I can't say that I'm a cookie expert but I can say that I know my truly tried-and-tested cookies.

So far, our most favourite dark chocolate chocolate chip cookies recipe has to be the Like Subway Dark Chocolate White Chocolate Chips Cookies at here.

And I still asking myself... Is there a better recipe?

What is considered a better recipe? Stronger tasting chocolate cookies? Chewier or softer chocolate cookies? Less sugar chocolate cookies?

I remember... Years ago, I baked a batch of 32 dark chocolate chip cookies cookies with 2 tbsp (20g) cocoa powder at here and my son's friends at the childcare were loving them! Looking at the recipe closely, I realised that each of these cookies is made with 0.6g cocoa powder only! Don't you think that these cookies are not chocolaty enough? Why do the children love these not-so-chocolaty cookies? Hmmm... Is it true that what is better for me is not exactly better for others?

As usual, the inquisitive me love Googling for recipes and hoping to find a better dark chocolate chocolate chip cookies recipes? No doubt that I found heaps! Some well-reviewed-and-rated recipes contain less butter and sugar at here, here and here but I reckon that the adjustment of sugar and butter will reduce the amount of dough made, resulting each cookie to contain the same amount of butter and sugar eventually!

Hence, I would like to focus to bake a MORE CHOCOLATY dark chocolate chocolate chip cookie that is equally chewy and nice like our favourite Like Subway Dark Chocolate White Chocolate Chips Cookies at here!

So I went testing testing and baked these...

My Perfect Cinnamon Crumble Apple Pie - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Unlike the majority of the world, the down-under Australia is having Spring now... with strawberries, blueberries, lemons and flowers that are in season... but why am I baking an apple pie? Why are we savouring an autumn delicacy during Spring?

Hmmm... I baked this because my son was craving for an apple pie and he asked me to bake one with less sugar for him! LOL! See! These are the things that I do for my little man.

Fortunately, Granny Smith apples are abundant throughout the year and also usually inexpensive in all seasons.

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed baking this apple pie because from this bake, I have found a perfect Cinnamon Crumble Apple Pie recipe!

Cottony Soft Triple-Layer Chocolate Chiffon Cake with Light Cocoa Cream Frosting - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Whenever I published and recommended my ultra soft chiffon cake recipes (listed at here), I often received messages and comments on how to frost the cake and decorate it into a birthday cake. Hmmm...

Well, you see... Unlike most chiffon cakes, my ultra soft chiffon cakes are extra soft and fragile! Hey... I don't name them ultra soft for nothing! LOL! Therefore, we usually eat our ultra soft chiffon cakes on their own without any frosting because any frosting applied on the fragile cake will weigh the cake down and might cause the cake to lose its structure eventually. What to do???

I must admit that I have not been answer all questions lately. To be honest, I'm really tired. I find myself in this situation that answering questions such as "Why is my bake not ok?" or "Can I substitute this with that?"or "Where can I buy this or that?" or "Can you convert this to that?" are time-wasting and consuming as I would rather spend my time with my family. It's not that I don't want to help. I just can't! Sorry!

The least I can do is to continue sharing my prized recipes. If you want to bake a cottony soft triple-layer chocolate chiffon cake for any occasions, I can show you how to bake it and frost it with a light cocoa cream. A low-sugar frosting that is lighter than buttercream and easier to whip than the plain whipped cream.
