Step 2 : Task #2

1 1/2 C. granulated sugar
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar
4 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice
3 C. all-purpose flour
3/4 C. old-fashioned oatmeal - uncooked
3/4 tsp. baking soda
3 C. semi-sweeten Chocolate Chips
1 1/2 C. chopped walnuts (if desired)
Step 2 : Task #1

We were asked to make cookies for TMHS bake sale. Then all of a sudden we were told that there was approximately 3000 hungry tigers and family members. We soon realized that the recipe had to be increased by
125
times the original recipe, this only if each person has one cookie.

This our conversions after multiplying 125 times.
1 1/2 C. butter- softened =
187 1/2 C.
butter
1 1/2 C. granulated sugar =
182 1/2 C.
sugar
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar =
93 3/4 C.

4 eggs =
500
eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla =
312 1/2 tsp.

1 tsp lemon juice =
125 tsp.

3 C. all-purpose flour =

3/4 C. old-fashioned oatmeal - uncooked =
93 3/4 C.

3/4 tsp. baking soda =
93 3/4 tsp.

125 tsp.

chocolate chips
1 1/2 chopped walnuts =
187 1/2 C.
chopped walnuts
When making something delicious we have to make sure there is enough of everything.However we discovered that there happened to be only 2 eggs in the refrigerator. Now we need to reduce the recipe by half the original amount, which was 24 cookies or 2 dozen. We then cut the recipe in half so, in the end there will only be
12
Makes 24 cookies = 2 dozen
Half recipe ,12 cookies
1 1/2 C. butter-softened =
3/4 C.
butter
1 1/2 C. granulated sugar =
3/4 C.
sugar
3/4 C. firmly packed brown sugar =
1/4 C. + 2 Tbl
4 eggs =
2 eggs
2 1/2 tsp. vanilla =
1 1/4

tsp.
vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice =
1/2 tsp.
lemon juice
3 C. all-purpose flour =
1 1/2 C.
flour
3/4 C. old-fashioned oatmeal - uncooked =
1/4 c. + 2 Tbl
3/4 tsp. baking soda =
1/4 C. + 2 tsp.
3 C. semi-sweeten Chocolate Chips =
1 1/2 c.

What I really want to know is: would you eat any of your modified recipe cookies?
How do you feel about you culinary skills?

I feel my culinary skills are very confident because if I just follow the directions I know it will come out right.

I applied basic math skills to the real world because knowing fractions and multiplication comes in handy when cooking.
