Chocolate Chip Cookies - changing the recipe!

Hi, everybody!

Today I want to tell you something which could be very useful to you and can make your work in the kitchen much easier: don't be afraid to change my recipes. Or any recipes. 

If you don't have an ingredient or you don't have it in the amount that it is prescribed in the recipe, fell free and use your imagination to replace it with another suitable one, or to reduce the amount of one ingredient and increase the amount of another. Play with the ingredients and try to be creative. Preparing food could be a funny activity, especially if you avoid boring and repeating recipes.  

For example, today I wanted to prepare Chocolate Chip Cookies, one of my old recipes and very loved by my kids. But I realized that I don't have enough walnuts, my recipe requires 500 grams (17.6 oz). So, I used only what i had, like half of the amount (250 grams = 8.8 oz).

Now, the question is how to fill the missing quantity. So, I added 100 grams more gluten free flour, and 30 grams Raw Almonds Flakes. And I reduces the butter quantity a little bit (from 200 to 170 grams), because I dont need the same moisture. 

Now the recipe looks like this:

walnuts - grinded (soaked before; see here how) 250 grams (8.8 oz)
- all purpose gluten free flour 350 grams (12.3 oz)
cane sugar 200 grams (7 oz)
- raw almonds flakes 30 grams (1 oz)
- ghee butter 170 grams - melted (6 oz)
- 2 free range eggs
- dark chocolate chips 100 grams (3.5 oz)

The way you prepare the recipe and cook the cookies is the same as for Chocolate Chip Cookies.
