Walked into the kitchen, I saw some choco chips sitting down there "smiling" at me, and I thought why not I do it myself? After that, the process started. This was my very first attempt at baking choco chips cookies. Taste wise, I think I passed, but shape wise still have lots of room for improvement. Here's how they looked like......
As my oven is small, I couldn't do all at a time. Hence, I separated into two batches baking them. The first batch was good, I mean the colour of the cookies. Whereas, the 2nd batch was like having too much of "sun tanning". The top looked so brown. All because of my itchy hands. I changed the oven heat to only top heat after 10 mins into baking. Thus, this was the result. But but but, the taste of the cookies were "seductive" ......
