I love chocolate chip cookies, and really who doesn't? I am always willing to try a new, or old, recipe that I come across. I bought the Bon Appétit Desserts cookbook the other day. I couldn't resist the 600 pages of delicious, sweet recipes. We were having a lazy Sunday, we played some bocce ball in the park, grocery shopping, and I baked. I hadn't made chocolate chip cookies in a while and I thought that they sounded pretty good. Plus, I just bought a stackable cooling rack and I had to try that out.
These cookies were pretty good. I think other recipes I have followed have produced thinner and crispier cookies. These were a lot cakier than I am used to, but hey anything with chocolate and butter will still taste delicious.
