Double Chocolate Cookies














Things, food, methods, procedures are invented with the main reason of satisfying needs or desires.  Like the baking method of cooking came up because may be our ancestors wanted to eat something else other than grills, soups and stews. And where there are methods and procedures, there are the set standard methods to follow.  In baking for example, you need to cream the sugar and the butter first when you make cookies or make butter cakes otherwise you won't get the right or acceptable texture or quality of your baked goods.  But what if one has no mixer to do the creaming?  Not even a hand-held mixer? Does that mean I cannot satisfy my cravings for cookies or butter cakes?

Of course not, before mixers were invented, there was the fork and the hands :-) And I can make use of that just to satisfy my cravings :-)

So in short, this cookie recipe I baked made use of no electric mixers :-)  A woman has to do what she needs to do to satisfy her cravings and serve something delicious for her man :-)

The chocolate cookies at the left are made by a caterer.  My husband gave it to me to taste it and compare it to my hand-mixed cookies at the right.  AND despite the ugly shape of my cookies, they are far better in terms of taste and texture :-) Frederick is proud of me.  Now, he really needs to buy me a mixer
