Even more chocolate chip cookies! Plus a giveaway!

even more cookies!

The other day, I decided to try and find the perfect chocolate chip cookies. I know I just posted some last month, but I figured I could find a recipe better than my favorite. I started out ambitiously, printing out 5 recipes to try. The first recipe was a Martha Stewart one, which I just didn’t care for at all. It was just sort of bland, I didn’t even take pictures of them!

cookie #1

The second was a recipe from Alice of Savory Sweet Life. I’m sort of in love with it. They grow on you, getting better as they cool. They are crisp, and the perfect mix of salty and sweet, I absolutely loved the sea salt in them. The first batch I made I used my small cookie scoop, the second I used my big 3 tablespoon scoop, and they were even better, more textured, crisp on the edges and softer in the center. So make them big!

cookie #2

The third was from Ashley of Not Without Salt. They are your quintessential chocolate chip cookies. The texture is exactly what you expect, but with an added crunch from the turbinado sugar, and they are delicious. It’s an excellent cookie. I wish I could have used chocolate chunks, like Ashley recommends, but sadly I only had chips. I bet they would have been even better!

After that one, my quest for perfection was waning a bit, so the last 2 recipes will have to wait a while. Both of these recipes are so, so good, and it’s really hard to pick a favorite. You should really make both, as they are quite different, but equally good, and much better than my former favorite. I’m making them again tomorrow to send off in the mail, I hope the recipient enjoys!


To encourage you to make some for yourself, today I’m giving away the Oxo 3T Cookie Scoop. It makes big, uniform sized balls of dough so all of your cookies cook perfectly and at the same speed. I love it!

perfect combination


Alice’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

Makes approx. 45-48 cookies using a sm-med 2tbl. cookie scoop
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups (12 oz) all-purpose flour *If at all possible, please weigh the flour
1 tsp. smallish-medium coarse sea salt *please do not use table salt, the sea salt gives the cookies a nice flavor and hints of texture. If you must use table salt, use 1/2 tsp.
1 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 cups/16 oz of semi-sweet chocolate chips
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 360 degrees. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until it is nice and fluffy (approx. 5 minutes on medium speed on a K-5). Add both eggs and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes. Add baking soda, baking powder, salt, and flour until cookie batter is fully incorporated. Finally add chocolate chips until well distributed. The cookie batter should be somewhat thick. Drop about 2 tablespoons of dough or use a medium cookie scoop and plop the batter onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-14 minutes until the edges are nice and golden brown. Remove from heat and allow the cookies to stay on the cookie sheet for an additional 2 minutes. Pick up the parchment paper with the cookies still on top and transfer to a cool non-porous surface. Allow the cookies to cool on the paper for at least 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Ashley’s Chocolate Chip Cookie
8 oz. 2 sticks butter
2 oz 1/4 cup white sugar
2 oz 1/4 cup Turbinado sugar
12 oz 1 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 eggs
1/4 oz 2 tsp vanilla
1 lb. 3 1/2 cup All Purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 lb. chocolate (use the best quality chocolate you can afford. With a serrated knife cut chocolate chunks roughly 1/2 inch)
Cream the butter and the sugars until light. Scrape down the side of the bowl. Continue mixing while adding the eggs one at time. Make sure each egg is incorporated before adding the next. Add the vanilla. Scrape down the bowl with a spatula. Combine the flour, soda and salt in another bowl. With a whisk, stir to combine. With the machine on low, slowly add the flour. Mix until just combined, taking care not to over mix. With a spatula fold in the chocolate.
If you so choose, and I do recommend that you do, sprinkle a very fine dusting of good quality sea salt. Fleur de Sel or Murray River Pink Salt are my recommendations.
Bake at 360* for 12 minutes. They should be lightly golden on the outside but still look gooey on the inside.

  6. Have you tried the NY Times recipe? What did you think of it if you did?

    I never knew cookies could look so appetizing. Your photography is inspiring as always.

    Favorite cookie for me is probably chocolate chip or macadamia nuts!

    ReplyDelete
  7. My favorite cookie? That's a toughie. I made the most amazing pumpkin butterscotch chip cookies for Halloween, but I really have a weakness for anything mexican wedding cookie-like. I've seen a ton of variations, but any small buttery crumbly cookie covered in powdered sugar is yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  31. i don't think there's such a thing as a bad chocolate chip cookie, unless it's stale. or burnt. these all look great. would you believe I've never used a scoop? i've also never had evenly-sized, nicely-rounded cookies. coincidence? i think not. :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have a soft spot for cinnamon oatmeal cookies without raisins. :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hi. I just love your blog. It makes me crazy hungry for baked goods.
    My favorite cookies are danish butter cookies. Butter, sugar, flour, sugar. They melt in your mouth.
    I pretty much love anything with a lot of butter.
    I am going to do a link to your blog on one of mine. I'll put another note here when I do.
    Thanks,
    Greta

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow! Look at all these comments! My favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe is your basic Toll House, but I do a couple of things differently. First, I use Ghiardelli chips. Second, I let them sit in the fridge for a couple of days before baking. I heard this tip on The Splendid Table last year and it was a good one; the cookies lose some of their liquid in the refrigeration process so they aren't as flat, plus it adds to that penuche flavor. Delish.

    I'm also a big fan of Toll House Pie. Ever made it?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Posted it on my blog, Hannah. I love seeing all the comments here on your post!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those cookies look delicious! My (current) favorite cookie would have to be what I call the Friendship Cookie: chocolate on the outside, peanut butter on the inside. The reason behind their name is that they're really great to make with friends (the process is faster and much more fun), and the chocolate and PB go so well together.

    ReplyDelete
  46. double chocolate chip Cookies!

  50. I would have to say chocolate chip cookies. Biscotti is awfully good as well.

    ReplyDelete
  51. My favorites are chocolate chip and molasses spice cookies (the latter recipe comes from martha stewart and is great for the holidays!)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hmmmm, I think my absolute favorite kind of cookie is peanut butter-oatmeal-chocolate chip. And if that mishmash of a cookie isn't available, then I love regular old peanut butter cookies. (With sea salt on top!)

    You can contact me through my email, which I hope was screened through this comment. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. You can't go wrong with chocolate chip cookies - they really are wonderful. Fantastically nostalgic. As for my favorite cookie? It'd have to be my great grandma's recipe for jam thumbprint cookies - I restrain myself to baking them once a year because once they're baked, I must eat all of them. Immediately :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. 7 layer cookie bars - do those count?
    YUM!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  70. Wow. . .picking a favorite cookie is really hard, so I guess I'll pick my favorite Christmas cookie, since it is that time of year, and that would be a Springerle. It's a German cookie (my dad's side of the family is German) and the dough is a powdered sugar/egg based cookie (with lots of flour, too!) with anise flavoring, and you roll out the dough, press it with a carved wooden board, let the cookies sit for 24 hours and then bake them. The design really pops out. They are amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I just tweeted about your contest, too! :)

    Oh, and have you tried the America's Test Kitchen recipe for chocolate chip cookies? It truly is the best. :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Your blog is so beautiful. Salty peanut cookies are my favorite cookie. Salty and sweet... So good!

    ReplyDelete
  73. My favorite cookie is an oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie that I make. It's my favorite because it has just the right amount of sweet to it!

    ReplyDelete
  74. German lebkuchen -- not too sweet, perfectly spiced, and that light icing on top. perfect!

    cheers,

    *heather*

    ReplyDelete
  75. Are you kidding me? Chocolate Chip Cookies of course.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My favorite cookie is one I don't make very often, because it's pretty labor intensive: stroopwafels. I got a pizzelle iron a few years ago and ran across a recipe from King Arthur Flour that is wonderful. Crisp thin cinnamon wafers with caramel inside. If you place them on top of a mug of hot tea (coffee/cocoa), the cocoa softens. Heavenly

    ReplyDelete
  77. Oops! I meant to say the caramel softens....

    ReplyDelete
  78. I will definitely choose chocolate chip at any bakery, but if my mom were to ask me what kind she should make me, it would be her famous chocolate-loaded Mud Dobbers. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. My favorite type of cookie would be the oatmeal raisin cookie. I don't know why I haven't posted about my favorite recipe for them yet.

    ReplyDelete
  83. A cookie scoop would surely come in handy for Christmas baking! (:
    Oh, and chocolate chip cookies sound so much better than studying for finals right now... a spoonful of sugar supposedly helps the medicine go down. Thanks for the inspiring study break. ;)

  97. I don't (yet!) have a perfect recipe for them, but I love the combination of dried cranberries and white chocolate in a cookie... it's gotta be a nice, hefty oatmeal cookie too, I think. Siiigh.

    (By the way - I have a blog, but it's currently on an unofficial hiatus while I'm at uni. But you can still contact me there if necessary =])

    ReplyDelete
  98. My favorite kind of cookie is probably a chocolate chip one. Since it's cookie baking season though, and I've been baking Christmas cookies like crazy, I'd have to say that my favorite Christmas cookie is the Bird Nest. This is a basic cookie rolled in chopped walnuts and filled with strawberry jam. I don't know where the recipe came from...it's been in my family for a long time...but it's so good and everyone loves them!

    Thanks for offering that awesome cookie scoop-I LOVE big cookies!

    Best reason to make cookies ever.

  124. My favorite cookies are peanut butter. I adore a good, soft, melty chocolate chip, but will grab a good peanut butter first every time.

  125. How can you not love a good chocolate chip cookie. Fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  126. My favorite cookie is the classic oatmeal raisin. No matter how many exotic cookies I come across, I always come back to this traditional favorite.

  141. My favorite kind of cookie at the moment is a chocolate chip banana oatmeal recipe that I actually got from the Lisa Frank website (oh, the shame!) and then adapted to be gluten free. The texture is amazing, and the flavor is mildly Christmassy and perfect because it uses cinnamon and cloves.

  142. I loooove chocolate chip cookies. I have a recipe that a friend gave me. I altered it after watching Alton Brown's chocolate chip cookie special. I love chewy cookies and Alton does a great job of explaining how to get cookies that end up that way. I used the altered recipe this summer to bake 1,000 cookies in one week for an event at my church.

  166. This recipe looks great..and a crucial mix of that sweet and salty. My favourite are those Christmas cookies from Germany that are made of a divine mixture (that I've yet to work out) of almonds, plenty of dark chocolate and vanilla.
