New York Times rated Best Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie!

Well, its actually a chocolate, chocolate, white chocolate chip cookie, but that is just a bit redundant don’t you think?

To which my husband would say, “No.  It is an accurate representation of the ingredients, redundant is excessive use of, or not useful.”

To which I say, “Shut up.  No cookies for you.”

Then he takes one anyway and smacks me on the behind.

Then I punch him in the arm.

The end.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie!

We loved all the different layers of flavor in these cookies.

One thing I recommend:  DO NOT SKIP THE REFRIGERATION TIME!  I know it adds a day to the process, but it is worth it.  Also, the dough is yummy so you can snack on that if you are insanely patient like me.

Don’t skip the salt either.  It really makes a difference.

  • Namita says:

    How many cookies does the recipe yield?

  • Karen says:

    I have made the NY Times chocolate chip cookies numerous times and love them. I made these yesterday and baked this AM. Not Good! First of all they were not chocolate enough using one cup of melted chocolate. Then, the baking time was way off if making them in a large cookie scoop as used with the regular NY Times recipe. The size of scoop was not given in your recipe. I am disappointed in this recipe as the ingredients were expensive and I had to throw them out. Was there an error somewhere? I love all the other recipes I have made from your blog, so this was unexpected.

  • Mrs M says:

    How much sugar? which ones? Nothing prints out and I can’t find anything about this in the comments. Thank you

  • Mrs M says:

    Thank you anyways. I see now how you typed the sugar component in your recipe

    Just to let you know you’re oatmeal raisins cookies I would you more then a five. I do believe that I eat to many but that’s oldest son has a birthday coming up on ground hog day,he wants a blueberry pie not a cake so here I go searching through your recipes .

  • Mrs. M says:

    Hello, I am totally confused by the measurements of some of the ingredients you list. I’d appreciate a heads up. Why is the cup measurement followed by the ounces?

  • Darlene Towns says:

    I want all of your recipe’s! Please!!! They all look so so good!

  • Kelsey says:

    I made these and they are DELICIOUS! However, I did have some issues with the recipe that caused some headaches. Maybe an update would be helpful as I see I’m not the only one.

    1.The measurements aren’t really clear on if it’s cups OR ounces. Initially it seems like you’re meant to do both. “1 c 6 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate” – so it is 1 cup AND 6 ounces or is it 1 cup = 6 ounces?

    It’s like this for 5 of the listed ingredients. Fortunately I figured out it’s “OR” when I got to the butter as I know 2 1/2 sticks IS 1 1/4 cups.

    2. You don’t call out room temperature butter in the ingredients list. However, you do call out room temp. eggs in the list. I got to that part of the directions and panicked for a moment b/c I hadn’t let the butter sit out like I did the eggs. I soften the butter in the microwave and it was fine.

    3. “1 heaping cup 8 ounces granulated” .. Sugar. Add the word ‘sugar’. A novice baker might not figure that out.

    4. When taking the dough out of the fridge (I was only able to give it 4-5 hours), are we meant to let that get to room temp or bake cold? I did cold, and the dough was really hard to work with. They baked up great, I just wasn’t sure.

    Regardless of the issues I have with the recipe directions itself, the cookies are fantastic. I didn’t alter the recipe in any way, and knowing what I know now, I’ll def. make them again.

    Why ae you using bread flour in your recipes. why not just regular flour?
