chocolate chip cookie with ground granola

We had a surplus of granola, so I decided to see what would happen if I ground it in the food processor and put it in chocolate chip cookies. Using the old urban legend cookie where ground oats stand in for some of the flour, I swapped the oats for granola. The result was a […]

thick chocolate chip cookies with toffee

In honor of the fact Mad Men starts tonight, I’ll probably bake something with whiskey. Until I figure out what, here’s a great chocolate chip cookie recipe from yesterday. I can’t wait to eat one again today! These cookies are thick, bumpy, chewy on the inside, crunchy on the outside and made with a not-too-rich […]

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookies

The post-holiday blahs have zapped my motivation to try anything new, but here’s a fairly old chocolate chip cookie you might have missed or just forgotten about. I baked some this morning and figured they were worth posting, especially since some of you love chocolate chip cookies with crispy edges and soft chewy centers. This […]

chocolate chip cookies with brown sugar

I had the urge to bake cookies for my hair dresser this morning, but at the last minute I discovered I was out of granulated sugar. What to do? Use all brown sugar. I hadn’t made these cookies in a long time, but the dough was so perfect and the cookies so handsome I had […]

Harry's Roadhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie

This chocolate chunk cookie was recommended by a friend who loves the desserts at Harry’s Roadhouse in Santa Fe. While Harry’s coconut cream pie is her favorite, she pointed me towards their recipe for Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

Joanne Chang’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

chocolate chip cookies

This week I posted a link to an article in The Atlantic. I guess a lot of people read The Atlantic because after I posted that one, a few people mentioned another baking article in that magazine – an article with an outstanding chocolate chip cookie recipe! I made the dough Saturday night and baked a batch Sunday morning.

This recipe is from pastry chef Joanne Chang of Flour Bakery in Boston, and in the article she tells how she came up with it. It evolved from the Toll House recipe, but Joanne Chang uses part bread flour, adds a combination of milk chocolate and the best semi-sweet chocolate available, lets the dough rest and scoops it out by quarter cups so the cookies are nice and big.

Cookie Dough

This weekend I made Eric’s Chocolate Chip Cookies from Top Chef Just Desserts.  They were incredible! Here are a few more notes for those of you planning on making the cookies.  I  got the best results when I made the cookies with chilled dough, used chocolate that wasn’t too smooth or easy-melting, and baked the dough on […]
