Day 5: The Famous {Infamous?} New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie

Day 5, take-two. After our baking fiasco yesterday, we still needed to bake 48 cookies for a cancer research bake sale. It took us a little while to figure out what cookies to make that would only take a couple of hours and then thought of these. These chocolate chip cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made. We stumbled on the recipe a couple of months ago and have never gone back to the recipe on the back of the chocolate chip packages since. I have tried lots and lots of recipes, never getting it perfect. Some were to flat and others to lumpy and doughy. These cookies have the crispy edge that bakes to a golden brown, but they also have a chewy inside that is delicious. This recipe does call for cake flour and bread flour, so make sure to use those. Also, make the cookies ahead of time because they have to chill for 24-36 hours. You can however, choose to not chill them, but I think that they come out better when chilled. This recipe makes a lot more than the recipe says, approximately 4 dozen large cookies, and that is a good thing because they never last long in our house. These cookies definitely make up for yesterday! I hope you enjoy them!
