The ultimate chocolate chip cookie?March 29, 2010
Most people like chocolate chip cookies. Problem is, some like them chewy, some crispy. With nuts, without nuts. Mini chips, large chips, even chopped chunks of chocolate. For the longest time I had a recipe that used shortening instead of butter, which I found made them chewy and soft, my favorite. But I’ve never had anyone say they couldn’t live without my cookies, so I continue to search.
My baking cookbook by Dorie Greenspan has a recipe that I decided to try. Butter, semisweet chocolate chips, walnuts, farm fresh eggs. They turned out soft and chewy, and they were delicious right out of the oven. They’re still great after cooling off, but I think next time I will freeze the cookie dough, so that I can bake a few at a time and enjoy them when the chocolate is still warm and gooey. Perfect! Even if no one can live without them but me.
