Cookie Porn

After holding on to this now infamous Chocolate Chip cookie recipe that originated in the NY Times for over a month, I finally gave in and made them this weekend for a family gathering. This is an investment in time & precise ingredients but well worth it, the combination of flours, bittersweet chocolate chips and sea salt (I used sea salt instead of Kosher salt) is almost too much pleasure to handle. The adaptation by Molly at Orangette is easy to follow. Attempting to not eat too many is futile. I recommend waiting 36 hours (I know-it’s a long wait) before baking dough as stated in recipe, the result is well worth it. The flavors & texture are sublime. My waistline disagrees.

I am dying to try this recipe. I need to make for it though. Quite the experiment!

These cookies were simply divine. I am going to try and make the dough this Thursday or Friday and let it cure for a couple of days and then bake on Saturday...yum!
