The second round of the Triple Threat Throwdown took place on Sunday night – this time at a neutral location and with more variety in the audience. This round was cookies and took place over 2 courses. First, all three bakers presented their best classic chocolate chip cookie: Lourdes’ “Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookie” (left), my “Gourmet Chocolate Chip Cookie” (top), and Elise’s “BEST Chocolate Chip Cookie” (bottom).
The scores after the chocolate chip category (out of a possible total of 280 points) were:
Lourdes – 220
Elise – 225
Me – 241 <-- Yay! I won the chocolate chip round! Then came the second category – Specialty Cookie! Each baker was allowed to choose which cookie to present and there were no rules or restrictions. The competing cookies were: Lourdes’ “Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookie” (left), Elise’s “Intense Chocolate Cookie” (top), and my “Chocolate Surprise Cookie” (right).
And the scores in the Specialty Cookie category are (out of a possible total of 420 points):
Lourdes – 340
Me – 355
Elise – 372 <--Congrats to Elise for winning the Specialty Cookie category!
We added both scores together to reach our final scores and to determine the overall winner:
Lourdes – 560
Me – 596
Elise – 598
Congratulations to Elise for winning The Triple Threat Throwdown – Round 2! Elise is the official Cookie Master (in the words of the Throwdown Director, Jiejin)!
