Time for Tuesdays with Dorie! Our treat today was picked by Kait of Kait’s Plate and she decided on Dorie's chocolate chip cookie, titled My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, in Dorie Greenspan's Baking From My Home To Yours.
We love chocolate chip cookies here, and my go to recipe is Nick Malgeiri's chocolate chip cookie recipe from his book Cookies Unlimited. It's been my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe for the last 7 years and never lets me down. It's thick and puffy and loaded with chocolate chips, and everyone always wants the recipe when I make them.
Dorie's chocolate chip cookies are thinner, crisper, and more chewy, and if those are the qualities you like in a chocolate chip cookie, you will love these. Basic ingredients, butter, flour, sugar, salt, these are classic. Although nuts are in the recipe there are no nuts in these, I was wishing for pecans or macadamias, but sadly I am the only one in my family who likes nuts in cookies, so no nuts. My two year old and three year old loved these. My three year old said to me, "Mom, I love you, you make the best cookies ever," after having two of these warm from the oven. I think that even though I lean toward puffier cookies, my little guy is of the crisp and chewy persuasion.
