Gooey, chocolate crumbles fell from the judges’ mouths as they savored junior Anna Chriss’ award-winning chocolate chip cookies.
The Mirada hosted its annual holiday cookie contest on Nov. 28, and Chriss emerged as the winner, as determined by a panel of judges consisting of teachers Brian Asher, Jaime Bonato, Gabriela DeLasse, and William Taylor.
Chriss’ cookies received a score of 8/10 and had a “great texture,” according to DeLasse.
Asher added that they were “real soft and gooey,” while Taylor said that “he could eat many.”
Below is Anna’s winning recipe:
2 1/4 cup flour
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Bake for 8 to 9 minutes.
Chriss will be receiving a free yearbook as a reward for sharing her yummy cookies.
