Copycat Subway Chocolate Chip Cookies
山寨版赛百味巧克力粒曲奇

Told a friend of mine that I baked copycat Famous Amos cookies , she says she loves Subway chocolate cookies more. I remember I tried  Subway cookies once. They are big, flat , sweet, soft and chewy, quite different from Famous Amos cookies. Out of curiosity, I searched for the recipe, and saved one that looks good. No time to try until today. 

 

The recipe calls for bread flour instead of plain flour. It says bread flour makes the cookies firmer. Brown sugar contributes to the chewy texture. As usual, I reduced sugar by almost 80gm so that the sweetness is within my acceptable level. I baked them in late afternoon, and ate a few pieces of these big, chewy chocolate chip cookies with a glass of milk. End up, that became my dinner. No room for other food.

As for the similarity of this homemade cookies and Subway cookies, based on the recipe source, it should be at least 70%. Maybe I should buy one piece of Subway cookies someday, taste and compare, and come back to tell you how much they are alike.  Anyway, they taste fantastic, that's what my girls told me.


I decided to write in English and Mandarin alternatively in my blog. Other than trying to reach more audience, I just feel that one language is not good enough to express myself.  English is more of a working language to me. No matter what, mother tongue is still the best to accurately describe my feelings.  So, my next post will be in Mandarin.
