The next food network star.....

Today on the way home from church Ben decided to bake some cookies to take with him to his home teaching appointments. Instead of just chocolate-chip cookies, he was going to make chocolate-chocolate-chip cookies by adding nestle's quik powder. I tried to explain a little about the difference between Nesquik and cocoa powder.....! Needless to say, while I took a nap, he spent that time reading about cookies and is now an official expert on what each ingredient does. He can now tell you exactly what the egg will do, and how the baking soda will react with the alkali in the nesquik powder; what ratio of white sugar to brown sugar will produce the softest cookies and just how to get the perfect combination of chewy inside with the crispy outside. Incredible! He had a great time baking and we certainly had a good time eating! They were pretty amazing! He still wants to try a few variations, so I'll be making a trip to the store for some more chocolate chips tomorrow! (got coupons, Mindy?!)

I want ANOTHER cookie!!!!!!
