Every week on LittleThings’ Facebook Live show Slice, we challenge culinary experts to make easy and delicious foods in under 20 minutes. This week, chef-instructor Jenny McCoy took some time out of her packed schedule to visit the LittleThings kitchen and rise to the challenge.
Chef Jenny McCoy’s culinary career has taken her to all corners of the world, with stops everywhere from Chicago to South America. After a few years working as a renowned pastry chef in New Orleans, Jenny moved to New York and became a pastry chef for such restaurants as Marc Forgione and A Voce.
Today, Jenny is an instructor at The Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) and the author of Desserts for Every Season. As if that isn’t enough, Jenny also volunteers with Wellness in the Schools to better school lunch programs in New York and will soon be launching her own online classes through Craftsy.com.
On today’s show, Jenny will be making three variations of chocolate chip cookies in under 20 minutes. Not only do these cookies bake quickly, but all it takes to make the different recipes is one extra ingredient! How easy is that?
Check out Jenny’s recipe below, and let us know your thoughts about her gooey cookie chocolate chip cookies in the comments!
