300 yards is tough with a good swing, great balance, the best club and a matched ball.....with the wind at your back. Geeez. Everyone knows it's never the equipment, or the fish ( just gotta find em), and a lousy cast is OK if you don't care about giving lessons. But that cookie recipe sounds intriguing.

 

How about tossing a freshly made chocolate chip cookie 60 yards with a 15 mph cross wind?

How To Boil Water:

 

Boiling water is very easy to do, but it is crucial to many meals, such as cooking rice and Pasta.

 

Choose a pot that's large enough to hold the amount of water you want to boil, and has a lid that fits.

 

You might be tempted to use water that's already warm or hot from the tap, but this water has been sitting in your pipes for some time, getting stale. Use cold water if you're going to drink it or cook with it.

 

Don’t fill the pot all the way up. Keep in mind that anything you add to the boiling water will increase the volume, and plus, you’ll need to allow room for those bubbles to do their thing. Without enough room in the pot, for example, rice or pasta will boil over.

 

Place the pot on the stove and turn the heat to high. If you want to speed up the process, put a cover on it

 

Check for steam escaping from under the lid, then lift the lid carefully to see how the water is doing.

 

Look at the water. If large bubbles are rising from the bottom of the pot to the surface, the water is boiling. NOTE: Small bubbles that stay at the bottom or sides of the pot are air bubbles present in the water; they don't necessarily indicate that boiling is imminent. Wait for bubbles that rise to the top of the pot

Now THAT is a useful post!

 

And Hilltop, those cookies do look good, fine simple recipe.  Perfect in fact.

You could, if it is a sinking cookie, or maybe and intermediate, never with a floater.

Love the insightful post on artistry of proper water boiling however you may find that the original poster may find all these posts to be a motivational source for his amusement. Tough to be a snob and fish the rocks of MTK with a fly rod. Mikey O !!!

In my opinion, keep in mind I never attended culinary school, if you are using the high end cookie dough you are just wasting money. You should be focusing on your ingredients ratio. ;)
