OK, I admit it, I am, without a doubt, a cookie monster. I doesn’t matter if they are store bought, homemade, holiday, just baked, kinda stale or the free ones you get from the bank…I love cookies. My inability to control myself around cookies (oh yeah, and pizza, but that’s another post) is one of my main motivators to get to the gym and finish super tough workouts.
Even though I’ll eat just about any cookie, my favorite is chocolate chip, and I’ve been conducting extensive research into the best recipe over the years. I’ve tried Jacques Torres, Mrs. Fields, Martha Stewart, many from all recipes and recently this one from the blog FOR ME, FOR YOU. I found it through Cupcakes and Cashmere, one of my favorite daily reads, and this recipes is definitely my new favorite. It’s amazing!
These cookies are perfect… a little crisp on the outside, but soft and gooey in the center. One of the secrets is cake flower so they have the softest texture, plus delicious flavor, not too sweet, with the perfect chocolate chip to cookie ratio. I chopped a Callebaut chocolate bar to get the best chocolate flavor, plus I like the irregularity of chopped chocolate as oppose to chocolate chips. The cookies stayed soft and perfect for days and the batch I thought I ruined by baking them too long, was actually delicious the next day. So even if you mess this recipe up, you still get amazing cookies. I love a big chocolate chip cookie since it means I usually only eat one, and these are hands down my new favorites! You have to try them!
