So who is Felix K? That’s a question I ask myself whenever I make these cookies originally titled Felix K.’s Don’t Even Try to Say These Aren’t the Best You’ve Ever Eaten, Because They Are Chocolate Chip Cookies. I couldn’t resist a cookie with a name like that, not to mention the Allrecipes.com version had 260 reviews (now over 500!) and lots of stars.
I make the Felix K. cookies pretty regularly now. They are soft, chewy, kind of bendy and full of brown sugar flavor.
Felix K. Chocolate Chip Cookies Notes
You can make Felix K’s Cookies as a full or half batch. Measure carefully, and for best results weigh the flour (4.5 oz per cup). The dough is not super rich and good for holding high quality, melt-y chocolate OR just good old chocolate chips. Also, the dough is thick but it shouldn’t be dry. Reading the reviews on Allrecipes.com, it’s clear that some people used too heavy cups of flour.
Bake at 300F for Chewy Cookies
Remember the old Mrs. Fields cookie book where all the cookies are baked at 300 degrees F? This is Felix’s trick for making these cookie bake evenly and chewy. So don’t be scared to bake at 300. Also, the cookies are supposed to be kind of flat. Don’t forget to flatten the balls before baking.
I baked these on Sunday and loved them! Mine turned out a little thicker. The texture reminded me of a cookie made with shortening(in a good way). I liked them best the first day, but they were still great the 2nd.
These look delicious and I will definitely attempt to bake them, dare I say it, dairy free.
Looks like my daughter’s lacrosse team will be getting an after game treat. Thanks for all the great recipes and tips. My daughters classmates and teamates love that I found your blog!
My cookies look exactly like yours, Anna. They are good. I love the texture. I baked them for 15 minutes, then only on the sheets resting for 10 minutes.
(Still prefer NYT cookies, done my way, fast, no chilling time, and not extra sea salt.) But these are good. I made way more than 24, those would have been huge. Still got a lot of nice big size cookies. They really look exactly like your plateful.
Next up the Carla Rollins ones. And yes, I’ll chill the dough if I’m supposed to when trying a recipe for the first time.
I made the gourmet version from yesterday but messed up and added 2 cups of brown sugar (instead of 1 1/2) and didn’t realize it until I had mixed it! THEN I was out of regular chocolate chips and had to use MILK chocolate (which I’m not even sure why I bought in the first place as I like DARK, not milk chocolate) chips. Ugh.. they would have been so good if it hadn’t been for my goof ups. Now I’m dying to try this recipe, too, but I have some prom dress shopping to do tonight and will be away from home for the weekend.
I’ve got these cookies in the oven. I actually just made the NYT cookies a few days ago, but didn’t have cake flour, so I used the homemade version with cornstarch and this cookie dough seems about the same. The only thing I decided I don’t like about these is the 15 minute bake time at only 300 degrees, then that they’re supposed to sit on the baking sheet for 20 minutes! I can’t wait that long! 😉
I like a 10 minute bake time with only about 2 min. on the sheet!
This is daunting… I have never baked a cookie with these revised proportions and will have to try it!
How did these hold up? Or weren’t they around long enough for you to know. There’s definitely value to a cc cookie that can be baked the day before you actually need it.
There will never be a CCC recipe that we all agree is “the Best”. Individually we can’t even pick just one. 🙂
shelly (cookies and cups)
hmmm, very interesting! I will try these!
I always make the some (Toll House) chocolate chip cookie recipe and would like to try a new one. This one sounds good…thanks for posting it!
With a name like that, you almost have to try it! Guess I’m going to add another CCC recipe to the “must try” list!
Sue, I’ll have to re-name it “Typo Madness”. I can’t type to save my life. Just fixed the word “Don’t” which I’d spelled “Do’nt”.
Amy, let me know what you think of Felix K.’s cookies.
These look great! Another recipe to try. Oh darn!! haha!!!!
Maybe instead of Cookie Madness, you should re-name your blog Chocolate Chip Cookie madness. Just kidding! 🙂
Half batch baking now. This is NOT what I am supposed to be doing this afternoon! 🙂
Lisa, ignore the chocolate chip ratio and put in however many you want. I paid attention to the reviews on allrecipes.com and listened to one reviewer who said the recipe had too many chips and that the chips made the cookies too sweet. Given that, I cut the amount of chips down slightly and felt there weren’t quite enough. So go with your gut. The guy who felt there were too many chocolate chips may have used milk chocolate.
The lower fat, but still tasty part is intriguing me. This recipe has too low a chip ratio to flour for my taste, but of course that can easily be remedied!
These look good. I will have to make them since I am always on the look out for the best chocolate chip cookie.
Looks like another recipe I must try. Those look like the kind I like! ‘Sides, I tend to weigh my flour with a heavy hand, so it doesn’t seem to much for me. I HAVE been weighing flour on the scale lately though, you’d be so proud of me. 😉 I most often do 4.5 oz., unless a recipe is specific. My chef friend said she does 4.25, although she also said pastry chefs tend to weigh with a heavy hand, sometimes even up to 5 oz. for a cup.
I’m torn between trying this one first or Carla Robbin’s.
