Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Evan decided that he wanted to undertake a baking experiment. He researched cookie recipes, and picked all the ingredients. Originally the cookies also contained blueberries, oats, and peanut butter. However, after much debate, we narrowed down the special ingredients to just chocolate chips and marshmallows. This brought to mind S'mores, which then led to the addition of graham crackers to the flour base.

Evan really wanted to try the addition of heavy cream to the recipe, so half the cookies had cream, and half did not. We found the heavy cream added a small amount of flavor, but caused the cookies to be much flatter. Evan preferred the cream cookies to the non-cream ones, but they were both delicious, so we opted to make the cream optional.

We are hoping for many more Evan baking experiments in the future!!!
