The BEST Cookie EVER!!
Have you ever taken a bite out of a cookie and thought, "This is the BEST cookie I have ever had!!!" In this experiment we are out to find out what it takes to make you say "WOW! that was tasty!!"






Our Hypothesis
If cookie dough is baked right away after being mixed it will taste better than cookies that were left in the refrigerator for 48 hours before baked?
Research
http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/amazing-chocolate-chip-cookies/05166c47-4f4f-4d3e-8a7e-2a2c1ded216d
Results
-Of 10 subjects tested 3 preferred the refrigerated cookie dough and 7 preferred the freshly made cookie dough.
-Based off of the collected data we found that people preferred the fresh cookies dough over the refrigerated cookie dough.
-A common observation was made that the lighter colored cookie looked to taste better which was not the case in all scenarios.

Conclusion
-Based on our results the better testing cookie was the one made with fresh cookie dough.
-Cookie dough that is placed in the refrigerator before cooking produces less cookies and makes them lighter in color.
-The cookie dough that was chilled longer produced less cookies and we believe this is because it caused the ingredients to become more dense. Where as the fresh batch was fluffier and not as condensed.
-What would happen if the cookie dough were frozen instead of chilled?
By Stacey Sawatzky and Rowen Shaterian
Purpose
By doing this experiment we will determine whether leaving cookie dough in the fridge for 48 hours makes a difference on the taste of the cookie after being baked.
Procedure
We made the first batch of cookie dough without baking it.
- Then we placed cookie dough in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap so that it is completely sealed.
- Place it in the refrigerator for 48 hours.
- Once 48 hours has gone by the time has come to take it out of the refrigerator and start baking.
- Make sure the oven is set to the correct temperature before taking the bowl of dough out of the fridge.
- Once the first batch of cookies are done baking start on the second "fresh" batch of cookies.
- Bake the fresh back right away for the same amount of time as the first "chilled" batch.

Now you have two different tasting cookies...... but which one is better?
