Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have been busy lately with my new baby. I’ve been feeding it every 12-24 hours. It has grown strong and bubbly in a month and smells delicious – that nice blend of sweet and tangy. I can’t wait to taste it on a perfectly baked sourdough bread.

I have successfully created (yay!!) a sourdough starter and been obsessing about making sourdough bread but then after my first try, I was so disappointed. It was a huge fail. I was surprised how difficult it was to handle a high hydration dough.

I intentionally let it overflow just so I can take this photo 🙂 This is Adam Levain, ,my sourdough starter. (I’m still thinking of a better name to call it)

I’m currently working on my fourth try on rustic sourdough boule, I have a dough proofing in the fridge as I’m writing this, but I’m not very confident that it will be a success. I don’t think I did the shaping part properly…again. Ugh.

I’m really struggling but I’m not giving up especially after I’ve tasted the failed ones, it’s so good inspite of the texture and appearance.

I need more practice and I’m taking advantage of this time that we have to stay at home while waiting for the the Covid19 clouds to clear so we can all enjoy our normal lives again.

Anyway, let me share this delicious cookies using sourdough discard. I like it because I can only eat 1-2 cookies at a time and I’m already good. I can’t binge eat these even if I want to. It quickly calms the sugar monster in me. 🙂

Happy Baking! #Stayathome #Gooutonlywhenyoureallyhaveto #Keepsafe

Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are soft and cakey, like bite size coffee cakes. I find it very filling, I can only eat one or two at a time which is a good thing:)
