chocolate chip cookies

Every time I decide to shoot for more consistency in blogging, something comes up, and I fail. Of course, it’d probably help if I were actually making something these days. Anyway, I have managed to do a bit of baking.

There are so many good cookies in the world, and I have SO many cookie recipes, but you know, you just really can’t beat a good chocolate chip cookie. I have quite a few chocolate chip cookie recipes, and lately my standard has been the one from Cook’s Illustrated. Last week, though, a friend made some chocolate chip cookies that were perfect–they were chewy yet soft and moist, and they were large (yes, that is an important factor). I had to bake them myself to see if I could duplicate them, and they came out pretty well, but I don’t think they held up as well (his were good for several days, but mine were only good for a couple). Anyway, the recipe is here. If you make them, please let me know if you agree about how great they are!

    Do you know the slice of bread trick? Stick a slice of bread in the cookie container, when the bread gets stale toss it and replace it with a fresh slice. It keeps the cookies nice & chewy.

    I tried them out over the weekend, and they really are pretty lovely! They spread a little too much for me, but maybe I should add a bit more flour (I tend to skimp a bit).
    Thanks for the good link/recipe!
