The time has come for these to appear on the series. The famous New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies happened in my kitchen. And you know what? I am not impressed.
Nope. Sorry. They are a good cookies but to me, they are far from perfect. I had high expectations. After making these, how could I not have? As I was shaping the dough on my cookie sheet, I knew they were too big. When they came out of the oven, the looks were disappointing. After we took a bite... meh. Just a regular cookie. No wow factor.
Few things about this recipe:
- it calls for types of flour I wouldn't normally have in my pantry
- makes an enormous cookie, quite overwhelming to eat; I made only 4 cookies the size called for in the original recipe and about 10 regular size cookies as
- they don't look as tempting as other types I have made in this series.
But I wanted to give them a try. And you should too if you are a huge chocolate chip cookie fan.
The original recipe can be found here. I followed the recipe exactly.
I have only one more recipe to go and the series will be completed. I can already say, we found our favorite. But I will leave the final thoughts to my last post in the series.
