    Best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever made! I froze half the batter and defrosted and reused and still came out delicious. If you want them smaller and thicker, scoop out about an inch in diameter high and bake at 400 for 8-9 minutes and let them finish cooking a bit longer on the hot baking sheet. I find the secret to a good cookie is take them out way before the designated time. Another awesome cookie recipe is Ritz Carrlton’s blueberry/ white chocolate chip cookie. You guys should try it!

  6. thank you. and bless you! i love the “imho”…took me a moment..haha.

  7. This really looks delicious. I’m definitely craving for a plate of that right now. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe. This is definitely a must do recipe this weekend since I got my Food Safety Course.

  8. Chocolate chip cookies are really an all time favorite for both kids and adults alike. There are various recipes for this but this recipe is worth trying. Surely kids and adults will enjoy preparing this at home.

  9. Indeed the best chocolate cookies I’ve ever taste in my whole life! great recipe

  10. OH my! that looks absolutely delicious.

    They also make the BEST hot chocolate I’ve ever had!

  12. I can’t believe the response I got from these. Everyone LOVED them. I had a couple people, my husband included, who said they were the best cookies they ever had. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Hi, we’re just starting out a food/culture blog written by two hilarious girls in college, and would love it if you would check us out! We adore your blog, and it would mean the world for us if you looked at it (and maybe followed us?)

  14. the best cookies EVER!

  15. I’m frequently inspired by recipes online (who isn’t?!) but this one actually moved from an inspirational bookmark to reality. I bought the special ingredients and everything. Now it’s all I can do to wait the recommended 24 hours before baking!

  16. made these today…..amazinnnng

  17. I used to live right by Jacques Torres in Brooklyn and while their spicy hot chocolate is wonderful, Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side takes the cake! I dream about Levain cookies and even now, living on the opposite side of the country, I have Levain cookies shipped to my house just so I can taste a little bit of heaven every now and then :)

  18. LOVE these cookies. Putting them in the fridge overnight really does make them much more delicious….

  19. These look absolutely delicious! We love your preferences in cookies! We’d have to agree with all of them. Especially leaving the nuts out. We might have to up the chocolate to cookie ratio…

  22. Yummy !!! It looks very delicious :P

  23. Mmh great idea for me&my boyfriend’s date night tonight- baking these delicious cookies!Thanks for the inspiration!
    Greetings from cold, but sunny Germany, http://www.dailycostumes.com

  24. thanks for the recipe! i can never turn down a chocolate chip cookie. i always have to make a stop at jacques torres’ shop whenever im in the big city.

  25. TRYING TO GIVE UP SWEETS. These photos are making it VERY difficult. Lovely, though! thanks for sharing!

  26. I make the best chocolate chip cookies ever, simply by following the recipe on the back of the nestle tollhouse chocolate chip package–and i started using milk cc!! they are so yummy!

  27. OMG, I love your blog but now just like you, hating winter, already gaining weight and then you show us chocolate chip orgasm… Lol.

  28. that cookies looks so good, mouth watering good!

  29. I bet these are amazing, they look so good!

  30. I have been making these since they came out in the new york times, they really are the best chocolate recipe of all time. It’s worth the wait if you chill in the fridge as it says.

  31. i am on a no treats October mission meaning no sugary treats such as cookies or brownies, but lemme just tell you, November 1st! It’s on! These look amazing! I am drooling!

  32. ooohh…. well… there goes my diet… :P

  33. Our apt is right near Levain Bakery and J Torres and I WAY prefer J Torres cookies. Thanks for the recipe

  34. craving these cookies as i type! YUM will have to try making a batch. thanks to abigail for the heads up on the recipe. freezing the cookie dough for later is a great idea!

  35. found these on Pinterest and we made them that night!

    A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Of course you have to plan ahead since it calls for huge full chocolate bars, WORTH IT!

    and the recipe was so big, we halved it and then froze the rest to have ready to bake cookies, so yummy. My new favorite cookie!

  36. mmmmmmmmmmmm
    i have been once to NY, and all the cookies, donuts, cakes… i tasted were delicious!

    I need to come back soon

    i am a chocolate addictive!

  37. i made this weekend. and everyday since…they’re perfect (especially the next day) for some reason they taste better if you let them sit over night. i bake them before i go to bed and then eat cookies for breakfast :)

  38. 1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Chocolotate chip cookies. Favorite dessert item.

    2. I can’t believe how many comments you get, even over cookies. HAHAHA… very impressed.

  39. Um. I think that I may skip making dinner tonight and bake these instead!! YUM!

  40. I’ve been sneaking protein powder into banana bread these days (my son loves fruit, but protein not so much) but I am going to try it in these cookies. Yum!

  41. how delish looking! i’m going to have to try these during my annual bake-a-palooza!

  42. this look unreal! i love how there is equal ratio chocolate to dough. ymmmm my favorite.

    I am for sure using this recipe. thanks!


  43. Oh, my. These look delicious! I know what I’ll be having for lunch.

  44. How delicious! We here at Justin’s have a sweet tooth and might I suggest adding Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups to home baked cookies, it will taste quite delicious!

  45. holy jesus–those look amazing!

    I’ve never commented before until now but I have to say, your blog is the best site on the internet. Seriously, awesome hair tutorials, motherhood monday’s, and now cookies? Please never stop blogging and thank you for all that you do.

  47. oh my! And I did so good eatting carrot sticks all morning lol

  48. Wow…I usually just take the easy route and bake a roll of the pillsbury kind, but these look sooo good, I just might have to try them out :)

  49. I’m already starving as it is, so I think it’s safe to say the picture of the cookie hasn’t helped haha :)

    Great post!

    It looks amazing! :)

    I have always been a fan of the regular Tolhouse recipe. This recipe look’s very similar to Tolhouse’s…only better!!

  51. Oh man, they sure DO make the best cookies! I’ve bought the mix from the store and made it at home before, but I love having the recipe now! Thanks for sharing!

  52. Until I moved to L.A., I worked right across the street from Jacques at the Penguin office! They are hands down the best cookies. And, if you go in there for coffee, they’ll put a shot of their unbelievable European style hot chocolate in there for you–it’s amazing.

  53. Oh my. Not the best thing to see after you’ve just had an unpleasant experience on the (lying) scale :) But I’m totally pinning it and making them this weekend.

  54. They look delicious…i’ll have to try them soon.

  55. I’ve done a bit of a NYC cookie taste test and I think Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side has the best chocolate chip cookies actually!

  56. We live just down the street from Jacques Torres in Dumbo, and when I saw the title, I was hoping you’d say these were the best:). My husband loves them! (I love the smell, but am allergic to chocolate;).)

  57. The worst decision I ever made was to make some of this cookie dough and freeze it to have on hand when needed (it was gone in two days. And by worst decision, B mean best).


  58. Love this chocolate chip cookie recipe – it’s the only one I ever use and everyone absolutely adores the cookies.

  59. I shouldn’t have opened your blog!!! OMG

    I was hungry naow i’m starving and drulling all over my keyboard

  60. Looks delish… will share with my husband since he is the chocolate freak in the house… Thanks!

  61. It is a chocolate chip cookie kind of day and I can’t wait to try this recipe. :) MMM!

  62. Those look amazing! But I admit that my true love is with Tate’s Cookies.

  63. Holy cow…instant chocolate chip cookie craving. Will be making these tonight! :)

  64. wow they’re just oozing from the computer screen!!! i will totally try this recipe!!

  65. I have his books and have been making his cookies! Sooooo yummy :)

    We did see on telly that there’s a place called Petrossian (I think the Upper East Side?) that has great cookies too. Wonder how it compares.

  66. i know, aren’t you suddenly starving for a cookie?!!!

  67. Those look soooo delicious!!! Now I’m hungry and it’s not even lunch yet!

  68. that cookie looks incredible. I am going to bake some now!
