Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
February 14, 2008

THESE COOKIES ARE LIFE-CHANGING. The best I've ever tasted in 25 years of baking. They have the right balance of flavor and texture. HERE'S A FEW TIPS TO GUARANTEE PERFECTION: 1. Replace 1 to 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour with oatmeal flour (oatmeal that's been processed until powder). 2. Take cookies out of the oven before they appear fully cooked, and let them stay on the cookie sheet for at least ten minutes. Cookies allowed to cool on the cookie sheet are much chewier. 3. I find dissolving the baking soda in water is unneccesary, they come out perfect regardless though I still added the spoon of hot water. 4. Use salted butter in this recipe in addition to the salt called for. 5. This dough freezes well. I double it, roll half into one-inch balls then freeze so I can have ready made cookie dough balls to bake another time.
