I’ve succumbed once again to that which is a cookie and that which is chipped in chocolate. Ah, chocolate chip cookies – what can I say? I’m only one of the millions who are in search of that perfect chocolate chip cookie. The funny thing is about this kind of quest is that that perfect cookie may be perfect to one person, but not so for another: and the quest continues, to infinity and beyond as someone once said.
With the exception of my Dad’s favourite chocolate chip cookies – a recipe I’ve yet to share here, in case anyone starts looking for it – lately I’ve been using a different recipe just about every time I roll up my sleeves to make chocolate chip cookies.
Thinking about it, my idea of a perfect chocolate chip cookie is variable, often shifting depending on my mood. Generally though I like firm and chewy chocolate chip cookies that have that pleasing and comforting density with chocolate chips that are spread throughout the cookie: an even ratio, more or less, of cookie and chocolate chips. I also appreciate crispy edges, when I can get them. All of this I found answered in Carrie’s (a.k.a. Ginger Lemon Girl) chocolate chip cookies, when I decided to adopt her for this month’s Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger hosted by Sea of Book of Yum, who created this event. You might even call these chocolate chip cookies famous.
