Cookies for dinner!!
After years and years, I'm still on the quest for perfect chocolate chip cookies. In college, whenever I needed to relieve stress from studies I ended up baking. It was nice to have homemade goodies in our dorm. I LOVE the cookies at City Bakery in NYC, but they are a little rich for me. I am looking for something a little better than the recipe on the Tollhouse package. So after searching, I found a modified version of an Alton Brown recipe. I love his show, but often when I try his techniques I find they are not all they're cracked up to be.
What I'm searching for is a cookie that is crunchie around the edges and a bit doughy in the middle. Mine are a little crunchy on the outside and bit hard in the middle (great if you're a dipper). The taste is good & they look good but the texture is NOT what I'm going for. SO if ANYONE has a great chocolate chip cookie recipe I'm game. I'd also like to try one that has a bit of an espresso flavor or mocha...
