It's possible I've lost my mind. Not only did I put Diet Coke in cookie dough (why yes, yes I did), but the sheer amount of time I spent googling "unique cookies" the other day should be criminal. I was desperate to find something that sparked my interest, something different. Why? What's wrong with me? Can I not rest until I've attempted seventy eleventy (made up number) thousand different chocolate chip cookie recipes? The answer is yes, I cannot rest, so please send me any and all bizarre ideas. Like this recipe - chocolate chip cookies with a tablespoon of soda in them.
My son giggled the entire time we made these together, happily taking a few sips from the soda and wondering if the end result would taste "bubbly." Well they don't taste like cola, but there is something different about them. There's almost a bread-like flavor to the cookie - scientists, help me out? Is that the carbonation? Like using club soda or beer to make soda bread? Do scientists read my blog? I'm dumb. I have 9-month preggo brain. I drove my son to the completely wrong place for his first day of lacrosse camp yesterday because I read an email wrong.
The cookies aren't bad, but they aren't my favorite. I think the recipe is missing salt. My son, on the other hand, thought they were AWESOME. And honestly, what can be so bad about a "bready" cookie with chunks of chocolate in it? Not a whole lot. I'm just picky, because I've eaten seventy eleventy thousand cookies in my life.
