This might seem a little strange. Although I’m baking out of a cookie cookbook that has roughly seven chocolate chip cookie variations in it, I chose to make a recipe from the internet. I can’t help myself. When somebody calls this the “perfect” chocolate chip cookie, I can’t resist.
She may be right. This is certainly one of the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made. The cookies baked up crunchy on the edges and chewy in the center. The dough itself has flavor (so many chocolate chip cookie doughs are tasteless, relying on the chocolate chips for flavor) due to three kinds of sugar. They baked up fat and round without much spread. And a sprinkle of salt on the tops contrasts nicely with the sweet cookie.
