The perfect chocolate chip cookie

Fun piece in the New York Times on what makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

“Like the omelet, which many believe to be the true test of a chef, the humble chocolate chip cookie is the baker’s crucible. So few ingredients, so many possibilities for disaster.”

If you ask me, all you need to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie is own The New Best Recipe Book. Of course, owning this book will allow you to make pretty much anything you want perfectly. (Thanks to Larry Halff for recommending this book to me.)
