There be many pickled things in this country (https://romanianreflections.wordpress.com/2011/11/16/pickled-things/) but they really don’t know much about chocolate chip cookies.
At home I am known as a good cookie baker. But here I believe I may have disgraced myself.
My first challenge: cookie sheet
I went to the hypermarket to get a cookies sheet and found my one option to be tiny. As it was my only option, I went with it. At least the price was proportional to the size.
My second challenge: brown sugar
There is no such thing as brown sugar here. Well, there is, but it’s not really brown sugar. More like white sugar that has a slight tan tint to it. And trust me, it does not act like real brown sugar.
My third challenge: chocolate chips
Chocolate chips do not exist here. I broke up chocolate bars to create ‘chips.’
My fourth challenge: a tempermental oven
Given all of these challenges I guess I should not be surprised at the result. They may not look pretty but they actually taste pretty good.
