April 8th - Culinary Tech - Chocolate Chip Cookies

Posted: April 8, 2020

Hi Folks!

I will be posting a couple videos a week for Culinary Tech classes. Just a reminder that the 110 Curriculum focuses on baking and the 12o focuses on cooking. So you will be seeing a bit of both, just know that you are only required to take a look at items from youe respective class, but feel free to try anything!

Here is the recipe for the Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1 cup margarine
¾ cup white sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
½ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 ¼ cup flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1.   Pre-heat oven to 350 F.
2.   Cream together margarine, white sugar and brown sugar.
3.   Add egg and mix until incorporated.
4.   Mix in vanilla, salt, baking soda and cornstarch.
5.   Add flour, one cup at a time.
6.   Mix in your chocolate so that they are evenly distributed.
7.   Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
8.   Scoop cookies onto the pan making sure there is about 1 ½ inches between each cookie.
9.   Bake for 12 minutes. Let sit on pan for 5 minutes after baking, let cool. ENJOY 
A few things I would like you to do:
1.   The recipe gives you measurements in cups and teaspoons. Please convert each measurement into milliliters.
2.   What is the purpose of egg, baking soda and salt in the cookie recipe?
3.   What is brown sugar made of?
4.   If we changed the recipe and only used white sugar instead of brown sugar, what three properties of the cookies do you think would change?
