Why do we prefer homemade cookies?
The cookie is a multitude of memories.
These are the delicious batches that our grandmother prepared and that embalmed the kitchen, it is the decorated cookies that we prepare for the Christmas holidays or our children’s snacks that we dipped in a glass of fresh milk.
As adults, we like to remember these beautiful moments and create new ones, for ourselves or for our own children, especially since the recipes are endless!
And then making your cookies also means knowing exactly what you put on them. No preservatives and the right dose of sugar, the opportunity to create the healthy and tasty recipes of a product originally anything but healthy!
Why do my cookies flatten when cooked?
The dough was successful, the balls beautifully formed on the oven plate and then disaster: everything flattened when cooking and here we are facing a giant cookie totally shapeless.
This is due to inaccurate measurements of ingredients, a dough that is too mixed, an unsuitable flour, or an oven that has not hot enough that has given the butter and sugar time to melt and drain. It is therefore generally recommended to let the dough sit in the cool before forming and cooking its cookies, in order to allow the most fragile ingredients of the recipe to solidify.
The good news? No flour, no butter, no sugar here but oatmeal and bananas as the main ingredients. The baked biscuits will keep their shape that it will therefore be necessary to take the time to make before cooking.
