The other day, a fellow Cake4Kids volunteer, brought in some chocolate chip cookies to share at our monthly meeting. The second I bit into that cookie, my search of 10+ years for the elusive best chocolate chip cookie ever was over. When she emailed her recipe over, I wanted to slap myself on the forehead as it was from none other than my Baking Illustrated book!
A great tip she gave me was to definitely weigh my flour and sugars which I did. A quick test had me off by 1-2 ounces each time I scooped and measured instead of weighed! The recipe also called for semi-sweet but what I did was just mix my 60% dark chocolate chips with milk chocolate chips. Yum!
