A Better Chocolate Chip Recipe?

A few months ago, I read a blog post titled “The Only Chocolate Chip Cookie I Will Ever Need to Know How to Make for the Rest of my Life.

That is a HUGE statement to a Shultz. We are chocolate chip cookie people. Growing up, we made double-batches so they would last for a few days. When I was eight months pregnant, my Grandpa was sitting at my table eating chocolate chip cookies when he nodded to my stomach and asked, “Does she like chocolate chip cookies?” One of the only things he asked me about the baby (I didn’t know what I was having, but I learned that day that Grandpa was certain it was a girl – and she would like chocolate chip cookies). I knew I had to make these cookies just to see {especially since you sprinkle them with sea salt right before putting them in the oven}.

I read the recipe again. This is a multiple-day process recipe.

Tonight, I mixed the dough. Followed most of the tips:

  • It was really hard to wait for the room temperature ingredients. Plus, it was a bit chilly in my house so the butter took a bit longer than I wanted. (So it was about midnight when the dough hit the fridge – thankfully this is “fall back night” and I get an extra hour of sleep).
  • I only have a hand mixer, so it was a challenge to get the creaminess to the right level.

Now for the taste test. YUM! A fabulous caramel flavor with the brown sugar creaminess.

And, cleared space in the fridge for Phase 2.

The Next Day

The oven is ready. Scoop and sprinkled with the salt. Only took 14 minutes in my oven to get golden brown. {Giving me plenty of opportunity snack on the dough.}

Tried the first one warm. Delicious! Waited a few hours…still delicious! But the authors tips said that they are better the second day. So I made sure some are left to eat tomorrow. (Also kept some dough to bake some more with the recommended 24-36 hours in the fridge).
