TWD: My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, Day 8 of "8 Days with Dorie"
Kait of Kait’s Plate selected My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies for this week's Tuesday's with Dorie recipe.
Chocolate chip cookies are like brownies in that there are so many variations, from cakey to chewy to thick to thin to crispy to soft. It's hard to say that any one recipe is the best, because every one's definition of the best is different.
I thought Dorie's chocolate chip cookies (I'm going to call them "CCC" from here on out) were on the thin and crispy side. They were good, but I tend to like my CCC thicker and softer. I'm glad I tried these, though, it's always nice to have another data point in the quest to find the perfect (for me) chocolate chip cookies. Plus, a not-perfect CCC is better than no CCC at all, right?
OK, that's all for now, folks. Tomorrow and the next day I'll post the last two recipes in my "to bake" TWD list. After that, I'm all caught up and will have baked every recipe the group has baked since the beginning of TWD. Woo hoo! And yes, I'm an insane over achiever... woo hoo!
You can find the cookie recipe on Kait's blog, or in Dorie Greenspan's book "Baking, From my Home to Yours".
