TWD- My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I LOVE chocolate chip cookies. My family loves chocolate chip cookies. 90% of the time when cookies are made at my house, they're chocolate chip. The other 10% of the time they're TWD. This is the first time I've made a different chocolate chip cookie than my absolute favorite. Dorie describes these as thin, crispy on the edges and chewy in the center. That is not the description of my ideal cookie. But they came out exactly as described. The first batch spread, and the edges were darker than I prefer, but they had to keep cooking because the centers were too gooey (even for my taste).
 The second and third batches were the same.
Hmm. Not the chunky, chewy thick kind I like.
After I baked them, I looked through the P&Q and this thin, flat cookie was the general consensus. My husband really liked these. Fresh from the oven with milk, they were yummy. Surprisingly, they were good the next day- the crispy edges had softened up and were just thin and chewy. Better. Head to Kait's blog for the recipe!

  2. I found them a bit too thin too, but they were chewy, so that was a bonus. Yours look great!

  3. I love trying different CCC recipes, so thank you for sharing yours! I also prefer thick and chewy, so I don't think Dorie's will be on the top of my fav CCC list.

  4. Your ccc's look delicious, even if the recipe will not be a favorite. I go for Alton Brown's "chewy" ccc recipe. He has a "crisp" ccc recipe too. Love your photos =)

  5. Glad your hubby liked them. My hubby, not so much so. He's a Toll House cookie fan. :)

  6. I couldn't agree more--chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate! These were maybe not quite so ultimate, but even a bad CCC is pretty tasty, and I ate a few flatty mcflattersons before beefing up the flour content.

  7. Your look like they turned out great! I had to do extra baking time for mine not to be too gooey as well.
