No matter what

There are just some things I can not - and not for lack of trying - do as well as my mom. Make her fluffy chocolate chip cookies for instance. Oh - and ice water. She makes really good ice water.

Yes mom, my cookies turned out flat - yummy but flat. Oy

Nothing like being known for your ice water!!! Did you stir the flour in by hand? Did you use shortening instead of butter?

Yep and yep. I just suck at the fluffy chocolate chip cookies. Maybe someday... I did finally figure out the lasagna after 10 years.

OK, check your board for my link on chocolate chip cookies. There is actually a science of flour, sweeteners, and shortninig/butter that detemines the chewy vs. puffy vs. crisp result.
