Or am I trashing the cookie dough? I'm testing out a new chocolate chip cookie recipe and I added 3 eggs instead of 2! icon_mad.gif I was reading the recipe too fast.

I'm going to bake the dough anyway. Just wanted to know if it's still going to be edible?? Or am I wasting my time and should just toss the dough and start all over???

Why throw it without giving it a try? In cakes and brownies, an extra egg will change the texture...don't know about cookies. But definitely bake some up to see how they turn out. After all, the first chocolate chip cookie that was made was a mistake.

Thanks Gemini! I actually did bake 5 of the cookies up (and I'm now baking more!). They are a little flatter than they probably should be be they are oooo sooooooo good!!

I don't know if I'll make the same "mistake" the next time I make these cookies. I have to see how 2 eggs come out. But I think I found my new chocolate chip cookie recipe!

Chewy and FLAT! Just the way I like 'em! icon_wink.gif

Next time just add half of your recipe to the mix, minus the egg of course since you already added that. icon_smile.gif
