eaten raisin branevery day for his life since I’ve beenborn that’s a dog had his burger what updawn[Music]to start each try guy will have 40minutes to prepare the cookie dough sofor our base cookie recipe I came upwith a little acronym tabsflour eggs butter baking soda or bakingpowder and sugar I know that cookiedough has butter cuz it makes some mepoop I know it has egg because you’renot supposed to eat raw cookie dough butI do it anyway and I know it’s got sugarcuz it’s oh so yummythere’s people in my family who say yeahmy room so your first step is will creamtogether your cold butter brown sugarand granulated sugar together I like touse cold butter because it really helpswith the texture and the density of thecookie at the end I grab some almondflour because I like nuts I know thatthey do butter and sugar togetherthat’s the recipes start that’s what I’mgonna do – that’s what recipes in twocups of fine pastry flour make twodifferent batters and then try somethingweird know how much supposed to go withanything so I’m just putting in a bunchsalted butter in my cookies cuz I like agood presence of saltto me it’s don’t be afraid of salt youdope you don’t want to over salt yourcookie but I think Saul kind of cuts thesweetness and really adds that saltysweet bite people don’t realize yougotta have salt and everything in fact Idon’t think there’s such a thing as toomuch salt butter got put in the freezercuz it’s just something I see myfather-in-law do when he bakes piessomething’s about not letting yourbutter get too melted is like a thing Idon’t know what I’m doing the next thingyou’re gonna do is you’re gonna add inyour eggs in your vanilla make sure tomix well until incorporate it but do notover mix because you avoid melting thebutter and over spreading at the endokay so I’m gonna use two eggs okay howmany eggs – Eggs[Applause]twigs feels good I put some water andthe eggs and the butter together Irealize that’s not right wet ingredientsfirst and then your dry ingredients it’sgonna be together the other days thougheverything I know about baking I knowfrom what I up horribly inprevious episodes so I know that you’resupposed to do your wet and your dryseperately my eggs are not going inuntil we’re really ready oh and vanillaobviously will pumpkin flavored creamliqueur go better with miso or poachujong one goes in peace they will getwhoa it smells like oatmeal deliciousoatmeal and oil I feel like cookies havemore oil than other things and I thinkyou want to do is add in your mixed endsin this case it was chocolate chips soadd in your chocolate chips and just mixuntil incorporated we put this into thewet batter that way you don’t run therisk of having chocolate chips be unevenin certain cookies now I have so manyraisins to choose from today called biggolden little golden and Ziggler ball mydad loves raisin bran and the number onesignature thing about raisin bran is ithas how many two scoops of raisins

color thatis spicy red bean paste it tastes goodbut it’s still just like not challengingenough my daddy likes more salt thanthis but I think I’m gonna put flakesalt on the top of the finished cookiethis might be totally inaudible but youjust gone for it so next the final stepof the mixing process is the dryingredients your flour your leaveningagents we do equal parts baking soda andbaking powder and your salt in this casewe also incorporated our cinnamon andcornstarch and then I put all of my dryingredients into the wet all at oncebecause you don’t want to overwork theflour or any

waiting for our cookies to chillwe are waiting for our cookies to chillso we can put them onto the platter andinto the oven and it shouldn’t matterwhich one of us wins but we’ll figure itout but we don’t know what we’re doingcookies well they should be about nowthat we have our fully mixed batter it’stime to pour shout the dough intoindividual cookies be mindful aboutspreading your cookies far enough apartI like to allow two inches on each sideyou don’t want the cookies to spread outand run into each other otherwise you’llwind up with a cookie cake I’ll use theparchment paper the best cookie sheetsare lined with butter so I’m just gonnause a normal spoon okay let’s do oneplatter at a time what are confusingblend of flavors it’s very wet cookiedough is not wet it’s gonna lean intothe idea that they look like monstersyou know let them beat globs let globsbe globs let monsters be monsters I’mtoying with the idea of the classicpeanut butter crisp shaping with thefork stuff on the side I’m puttinglittle pretzels on top of mine forhashtag aesthetics I can guarantee youthat no one in the history of theuniverse has ever made this dough maybeMike you know one half is me so one

little bit ofspreading and then a nice golden Sunkistbrown and a little cracking on the edgesOh something is immediately happeningand that something is not promising whatis that I will say I forgot to put anybaking powder baking soda I don’t knowif that’s the thing I meant to I didn’twell I did but I didn’t only put alittle bit of one Oh God do therewe may never see they’re really now theyreally

right away the presentationis beautiful and I love the sprinkle ofsaltI can smell Oh am I supposed to like itOh what do you not like it’s a littledeceptive all right all the flavors wentvery dry maybe too much cinnamoncinnamon sucks all the moisture out ofsomething well it’s like the only flavorI taste is cinnamon which is deceptivebecause you think it’s gonna be likethis super chewy saw delightful cookieand it just it kind of crumbles in yourmouth these were baked yes okay becausethey feel like you took out meal uh-huhlike soft oatmeal and then form them andthen some dried them all of this iscoming from a good place presentationand I like the ratio of raisins just thetaste is the one that’s the one pillaron the little struggling people don’teat cookies for the taste they eat itfor the number of raisins or or the lookfather’s often have a very dry sense ofhumor and I tried to capture that in mycookie as daddy’s favorite metaphors yesokay I think the title is creative I dolike the daddy’s favorite thank you butyou know it’s a standard oatmeal raisincookie with a little bit of sea salt ontop so I think it’s pretty down themiddle uh-huh well and is it a cookie Ithink it’s a cookie it’s a deceptivecookie I would consider this to be moreof a cookie than the last one we sawbecause the look and the texture it justhas just lacks seatingyou feel like put like a bunch ofsaltines in your mouth Toto be hella madnot that dry my moment of weakness wellwhat if I market it as a health bar thatwould work absolutely like wow this ispretty good for something healthy doesit

cookiedefinitely a cookie yes yes it’s acookie whoa I proudly present to you ohmy god my yin yang I was inspired bycreating two different batters puttingthem together as opposing forces withsome unconventional flavors I love thisidea I love this reason Tatian you knowI’m a Gemini there’s the sweet side andthen there’s the feisty side that’s agood description of what this ispresentation is beautiful like it reallydoes mean we were all like oh that’slike an Instagram a bowl like freakingshot right there this is huge this isthe size of a bagelit’s a strange cookie I’m not sayingit’s bad or good I’m just saying it’sstrange whoa why are so spicy oh my godso judges on the lighter side you havevanilla pecan Bailey’s that has apumpkin spike to it huh a lot of misoand then on the darker side you havechocolate cacao Kahlua and gochujangspicy chili have you ejecting twocookies here though I feel like we gotthe pecan vanilla one which actually Ilike very good then you got the darkerone with the spice in it still deliciousit’s just again like a super Kiki to methis changepresentation-wise it’s it’s extremelyunique case pumpkiny but this tastesbegley and it tastes like a pumpkinbagel bagel with both young is reallyimportant to add a lot of aromatics tobalance out the paste itself so gingergarlic green onions cookie batter veryedgy because this is pushing theboundaries of what is a cookie creatingtwo cookies in one cookie is it a cookieso I thought the presentation wasbeautiful it’s just not to me it is veryborderline cookie cake I almost putgochujang in as an experiment with theexpectation that it might totally failbut this is it’s not as strong itactually baked out more than I thoughtit would but the heat is still therewhich I quite like that well thanks forall your cookies you guys were going todeliberate now and figure out who’s thewinner thank you now it’s time to talkabout the guys and how they did the nextFrankenstein cookie the thing that Ididn’t like was also the same thing Iloved I loved how everybody tasteddifferent I like to be surprised but Ibit into a few bites that were terribleI didn’t like the cranberry I didn’t getany cranberry but I just need thepresentation it just doesn’t look likeanything it looks a little sloppy to mebut this looks like one of the firstcookies I made when I was five years oldit looks like a kid’s cookies perfectfor a bake sale this one for sure whatstands out for me is the butter contentI mean you could really I mean thatreally brings out a lot of flavor for itthat nice little hint of peanut butterreally complements the chocolate it juststayed in the oven a bit too long andthen let’s talk about thisoatmeal granola bar hiking buddy it justcrumbled though it did have nothingholding it together the first eversun-dried cookie yeah very creative themost creative out of all of them I likethe pecan and for the no aside the mostI mean cuz Eugene did extra credit hemade two cookies and I will say thishalf was really balanced I reallyenjoyed it even though it pushed the bedof what is it cookie based on the cookiecriteria this is a pancakethat’s a granola bar that’s a bagel okaybut have
