Say what you want, these are amazing…good enough to break a diet! I know what I like and I know a good cookie when I eat one especially a chocolate chip cookie! These are quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had in my life. I have some commitment issues when it comes to food and choosing favorite foods but I am 100% certain that chocolate chip cookies are my all time favorite cookie.
I saw a re-tweet of a post shared by Jessica @ The Novice Chef and she raved about these chocolate chip cookies so I just had to try them. I wasn’t planning to argue her point by any means, no sir. It would be like someone saying, “Nutella is so good!” and arguing that it can’t be that good. No way, you’d go and get the largest jar you can find. It’s all about sharing the bliss and that’s how I felt about these gems.
The flavor of these cookies is similar to that of my go-to recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The contrast of the cookie dough which is slightly sweet with a hint of saltiness and the semi-sweet chocolate is dangerously addicting. I tasted the dough right after it was done mixing and it tasted just like my usual recipe. I obediently placed my precious cookie dough in the fridge and tucked it in for the night. After a night in the fridge the flavor seemed to have become slightly richer overnight. I’m not exaggerating, I have a palate that is highly trained in cookie tasting. It was as if the dough was more “seasoned”. I’ve left my regular cookie dough in the fridge overnight and it pretty much tastes the same, so I don’t know what happened I just know that it happened.
I didn’t modify this recipe at all. After all, if I am doing a test I wouldn’t really know how good this recipe is if I changed it to what I thought was best at the time. One good thing about exactly following a recipe that you find is that you can come as close as possible to experiencing what the other person is talking about. It’s the closest thing to someone making it for me and handing me a nice warm cookie fresh out of the oven! Please don’t shake your head at these unless you make them and follow this recipe. If you don’t like them send them to me!!!
Taylor asked me if I knew what “willpower” meant. I’m assuming she learned about it in school. I told her the definition and she gave me an example while I mumbled about not having any self control of my own. She jumped to my defense.
“Well, mom you didn’t eat all the chocolate chip cookies did you? But you wanted to. That is self control! Good job mom!”
You’d think I just won the Nobel Prize the way she smiled at me. Yes, I suppose that is self control.
I did reserve some of the batter make one small change. I have a dear friend of mine who is allergic to chocolate. She can’t really appreciate the chocolatey treats I make and share here on my blog in fact I bet the very sight isn’t really appealing to her. So Chizu, I made cookies in honor of you. These white chocolate cookies were pretty darn good as well I promise you, and these are worth the wait as well. So I can personally vouch that this recipe can be modified, but I wouldn’t recommend it unless it’s absolutely necessary.
If I weren’t allergic to milk I’d dive headfirst into a glass with a cookie in each hand and come out only to get another cookie! Maybe I’ll have to substitute milk for a juicy sangria. Any suggestions?
