There's no doubt chocolate chip cookies are my love language. It can be
in ice cream form, sandwich form, pie form, but the very best form will
always be an actual cookie straight out of the oven. I'm super proud of
the fact that I can make these just out of the oven cookies from
scratch. I know it isn't rocket science, but I have been told my
particular cookies could have won the blue ribbon at the Frederick Fair.
So yeah, they're kind of a big deal. BUT sometimes the cookie
need is so strong that I don't have time to mix all the ingredients.
This is also known as lazingitis. So a few days ago the need was strong and I was "under the weather" so off the grocery store I went. That's when I was faced with the difficult decision: Nestle Toll House or Pillsbury? I
wanted the very best obviously, but I didn't actually know which one
that was. What's a cookieholic to do? Well I thought the only fair thing
to do was to buy both and have a competition. I'm all about being fair.
Elise: Nestle Toll House by a landslide. Nestle is more
traditional with that perfect bitter-sweet-grandma taste. Bonus: They
only take 10 minutes and came out perfectly. Pillsbury was much sweeter
which is not my cup of tea and also took significantly longer to bake,
like 18 minutes, and I ain't got time for that. Bigger is not always better.
Vince: Pillsbury is better.
