The UN-Official 1970 Kiki Project

When I was brainstorming ideas for this year’s version of the 1970 Kiki Project, I batted around a few ideas. Obviously, none of them made the cut except for “41 New Experiences.”

One evening, some time around my birthday, I was debating various ideas out loud. B – while likely inhaling a Chipits Chocolate Chip Cookie from Recipe #40 – proposed his grand idea for the 2011 version of The Project: make 41 cookie recipes!!! I then joked that I could find 41 chocolate chip cookie recipes very easily, hardy-har-har.

But then I paused. You know, I very well could find, effortlessly, all sorts of chocolate chip cookie versions…

…and they are B’s (and my) favourite type of cookie…could we eat 41 batches in one year?? (Silly question, I quickly concluded, considering a batch usually lives 2-4 days in our household). And they’d make great gifts, party fare…who doesn’t like to receive a coupla cookies, as a treat???

For a few days, I seriously considered doing “Project Chocolate Chip Cookie” plus41 New Experiences” for 2011. In the end, I opted solely for one focus, this year.

However, B and I decided that we would unofficially chase the 41 different cookie types competition.

To date, I have three batches completed. Tonight, I make #4.

a new *exotic* package of chips from vincenzo's!

We’re going down to Jeff’s condo for a Superbowl Bash Get-Together tomorrow. I’m going to contribute chocolate chip cookies!

Since I never got around to making an Anna Olson recipe last year, I’m making “Chocolate Chip Cookies a la Anna Olson” this time ’round.

I’m beginning to feel quite educated about “what maketh a good cookie,” – as in amounts of sugar and butter, baking temp and length of time, any “secret ingredients.” Anna’s recipe excites me!

*#*#*#*#*

Just within the past hour, it has started snowing vigourously!!

it's snowing more densely then during snowmegedon wednesday, this past week!

Perfect for a cookie-making evening!

See you tomorrow!

    I fully support your chocolate chip mission! I use the recipe on the choc. chip bag, but I usually bake my cookies in rectangular 13 x 9 pan so they’re more brownie/cakelike. I don’t know if bar cookies would count since the recipe is the same, but the results are pretty different!

      thanks for the thumbs up on the chocolate chip cookie project! great idea on the cookies-as-bars idea. as judge of my project, i could take a NEW recipe and just make it in bars…and it would count! thanks for the idea!
