The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies! (Maybe?)
One thing that folks often skip in this recipe is chilling. It can dramatically change the texture and consistency of this cookie and I highly recommend that you do NOT SKIP CHILLING. If you can’t resist snacking or popping them in the oven, try making a double batch. It’s worth it.
So be sure you plan ahead. After assembling the dough, chill it for at least 24 hours before baking it, preferably up to 36. This allows the dry ingredients time to soak up the wet ones, which results in a firmer, richer dough.
These cookies are good. Really, really good. There is a reason the New York Times picked them as their favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe!
