THE Chocolate Chip Cookie

For a few years now, I've been experimenting on and off to create THE Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe - I think I found it.

After trying out a few recipes, I found the characteristics I wanted to duplicate: 

Not too sweet
Crunchy edges
Chewy center
Chunks of dark chocolate
Visually appealing

A combination of different sugars definitely helped to achieve the texture and look I was searching for.  A pale cookie isn't very appealing.  One of my favorite things is how the large chunks of chocolate swirl into the cookie when melted.  Every bite is the perfect ratio of cookie to chocolate.

Because I love my cookies warm, one of my favorite indulgences is microwaving the cookie for 30 seconds and having it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.

Want the recipe?  Make me an offer...  :D


  1. If you are in NYC please try Sigmund Pretzel's chocolate chip cookie with small chunks of pretzel in the dough. This cookie looks and sounds like YOUR cookie. I live in San Francisco and have never come across anything like it here. So, try your recipe and add some pretzel pieces, hope you love it as much as I did.

  2. It just so happened to be my last day in NYC when I saw your comment! Although I had already tried (and loved) their pretzels, I made it a point to stop by Sigmund's LES shop to try the Wanko Cookie - YUM! And thanks so much for the recommendation!
