Sunday after church i wanted to make some chocolate chip cookies.. and had this idea to have a bake off... after much prodding and asking and mentioning.. jamie decided to challenge me. This wasn't like a normal iron chef.. we were trying out two different recipes for Chocolate Chip Cookies. This wasn't a "my cookies are better than yours" kinda thing.. more just trying to find a good recipe that would satisfy the judges.
Jamie used the nomal recipe on the back of the chipits bag, and i used a recipe from a friend at work that uses vanilla pudding mix in it (yes.. it helps to keep the cookies soft)
Well.. with Jamie involved in the Challenge, costumes were needed. She dressed us both. i became the challenger that was dutch and jamie was Iron Chef Japan. I told her i didn't know if these pictures would make it to my blog, but she reminded me of all the pictures i put of her already on my blog in weird things and that i had to.
So here we are.. Iron chef japan and the Challenger who is Dutch. ( it is a step up from being a hogwards graduate.. or is it?)
My cookies on the left.. Jamies on the right.
We both put in one package of chipit chocolate chips. and both had jenelle has our helper.
Dad, Erika, Mom and Jenelle were the official testers. Dad was convinced the challengers cookies had more chocolate chips. he had to close his eyes during the whole testing (not because told him to.. he just did that) "the flavors of the chocolate and the rest of the cookie are just dancing on my palette and they make me feel happy. I really could eat this more than once!" (insert high laughter of a japanese school girl with her hand coverering her mouth here)
Well.. who won? With three votes to one.. the challenger was victorious.
Seriously. chocolate chip cookies made with vanilla pudding mix are something everyone should try!!!
Haha.. i feel a little embarrassed by these pictures still.. but i must say that i am loving my time at home with most of my sisters. It has been such a great time for us! i am so lucky to have them in my life!
