Got to try a sample from a new bakery in Awesometown, one that specializes in homemade cookies. Below is my review of their chocolate chip variety, and below that is their news release:
Salt Sugar Flour Chocolate Chip Cookie Review
Delivered to my door, the cookies from Salt Sugar Flour came in a nice white box with a clear cellophane lid and wrapped up in a ribbon. I gazed down expectantly at the huge chocolate chip cookies nestled inside. Did a quick video (see my Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for that) and then settled in to do the work. If doing tasting notes on a cookie can be called work!
Just like evaluating wine or spirits I noted my observations before the tasting: a generous number of what I thought was both dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate chips in cookies that were almost as large as my hand. When I tasted I noted both a crisp edge and a softy, chewy middle. The flavor was spot on, creamy, chocolatey, with just a hint of spice. I noticed both cinnamon and stewed apple in the ingredient list and thought that these favors would pair nicely with Bourbon.
I lingered on one cookie for five or ten minutes, then I reached out to the baker, Chelsea Huntley, for some more info. I wanted to know specifically about the apple and why she used it. I guessed for both flavor and consistency. Also wanted to confirm the chip variety.
“Yes! It’s dark chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate! And yes, that stewed apple makes them chewier and keeps them moist longer! The use of apple is definitely my secret ingredient,” Huntley answered. “It’s the perfect key to the texture I look for in a cookie.” I had to agree that Huntley’s secret ingredient did make a remarkable difference in a cookie! And of course, I want more.
