This is an old post for a recipe for chocolate chip cookies made on Throwdown With Bobby Flay. Here's the original recipe. There's also a newer version of Bobby Flay's Chocolate Chip Cookies at the bottom of this post. You can read about both of them below. The cookies in this first photo are the ones from Throwdown.
Throwdown Chocolate Chip Cookies
The chocolate chip cookies from Throwdown With Bobby Flay are pretty good if you like thin, soft, chewy, cookies. The only issue I had back when I first made them was they weren't very "traditional" in that they call for Muscovado sugar and expensive chocolate. You can substitute with a mixture of light and dark brown sugar, in which case you just get really thin, dark chocolate chip cookies. They're not bad at all. If you make them with the Muscovado sugar, they'll have a very distinct flavor. I called them "chef-ish" back then. At the time it seemed like a good description, but here we are in the future and chocolate chip cookies are just so much more sophisticated across the board! Everyone's making "chef-ish" cookies now.
Bobby Flay's Chocolate Chip Cookies Instagram
I'm pretty sure Bobby Flay has come up with 100 new chocolate chip cookie recipes since the one from Throwdown was published. The most recent is one he shared on Instagram, and which is kind of the opposite of the Throwdown cookie in that it can be made in minutes. You just mix the dry ingredients and add the egg and melted butter.
