Chocolate Chip Cookie

This is the best chocolate chip cookie I’ve ever baked. Here’s a similar recipe from my archives. This time around, I’ve used twice the amount of baking soda (makes the cookies slightly darker), refrigerated the dough for 36 hours (allows the flour to completely absorb the eggs – a tip I’ve learned from this article) and sprinkled chocolate pieces on top right after I took them out of the oven.

    Oh. My. Have you ever made anything that looked bad? I can practically smell the cookie from here. Quit the day job and bake for me!

    Doubling the baking soda also might affect the taste. I find it tastes sort of soapy. Did you notice any change in taste?

    That definitely looks like chocolate chip cookie perfection! How I wish I was your neighbor…I would do your chores for some of those cookies!

    Marti – My old recipe doesn’t have too much baking soda to start with, so doubling it amounts to 1+1/2 tsp of baking soda, which isn’t too much (I have seen recipes with 2 tsp.). It didn’t really affect the taste. These are the best I’ve tasted so far.

    joey – You don’t need to do any chores! I would have shared them gladly.

    Excellent article, thank you for sharing. And from the picture, it looks like it works as described.

    Thank you for sharing this article. I’m interested to see the effects of letting the dough sit for 24+ hours. Your photo makes makes me want to eat chocolate chip cookies. A whole day seems like an impossibly long time to wait!

    Ok, I have to ask, I have made cookies since I was little and chocolate chips a zillion times. But I didn’t know adding extra baking soda makes them darker, only taste bitter weird if you get a little too much baking soda. How are you avoiding that?

    Erika – As I told Marti, my old recipe doesn’t have too much baking soda to begin with, so doubling it was not a problem.

    I have had those chocolate chip cookies before, they are simply devine. I think it will be difficult to top that chocolate chip cookie recipe.
