- I'm on a quest to bake the perfect cookie
- I've recently discovered that citrus is my achilles heel of baked goods.
How do I bake so much and still look reasonably fit? I don't bake with citrus as much as I'd like to... Any other flavor, and I can take one piece/cupcake/cookie/whatever and walk away feeling perfectly satisfied, leaving the rest to tempt my friends, family, and coworkers. However, when there is fresh citrus in the batter, I want to eat handfuls of cookies and I greedily hide the leftover cake (no one from work even saw the Clementine Olive Oil Cake from a few months ago).
To kick off my Perfect Cookie Search, I baked an Orange Snickerdoodle Cookie (an Orangedoodle, if you will), adapting a recipe that yielded one of the best cookies I've had. Last summer, when I was just a wee novice baker, I made a batch of Vegan Lemon Lime Cookies, and was so pleasantly surprised to find that I loved them! They were chewy and flavorful, and everything that I want in a cookie. The question I sought to answer regarding these cookies was whether or not they were replicable with other flavors... for instance, orange.
