Have you ever thought about the science behind delicious treats like cookies? It may seem like an odd question, but that’s the sort of thing I think about all the time. I even have t-shirt that reads “Baking is Science for Hungry People” because I love to bake and think of it like being a mad scientist sometimes.
Here at this site you will learn the science that is involved in baking cookies! Who knows it might even make you a better baker when you’re through reading it.
The information is divided up into two categories: soft cookies, and hard cookies. They start by explaining the difference between the two and what characteristics you’ll be looking for in each type of cookie.
Next they discuss an array of ingredients that are used to make such divine treats. And then they dive into the science between hard cookies and offer up several different recipes you can try as experiments. Then they dive into soft cookies offering up recipes that you can experiment with as well. Each section offers an array of photographs to help you along the process.
You’ll learn the science behind the baking of cookie as you read through the recipes and check out the included photographs!
