I am dedicating this post to a blogger friend of mine, Ella Unread as she has been longing for good cookies.  This recipe is one of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes.  The original recipe comes from the people at America’s Test Kitchen.  That is probably what makes the recipe a little more technical, but it is really yummy.  It is kind of a fun recipe to make as well.

You don’t have to do some of the things like bake on parchment paper, but it does help you clean up.  I did have a friend who, when making this recipe forgot that she was using baking sheets with no sides so when she went to turn the pans, the cookies (on the parchment paper) went flying around the kitchen.  I got a phone call that went something along the lines of “Ummm, Alex, how do I get chocolate chips off of the ceiling?”  Yeah, you should pay attention to that.

I haven’t actually had the time to bake this weekend yet, but I may tomorrow when we have a day off from the theatre.  I do get to do some fun cooking today though as I host a BBQ at the theatre between the shows.  It has become a tradition that we started during Les Mis when we didn’t have a lot of time between shows.  Now of course we just do it for fun on the two-show-days.  So, I get to be grillmaster for the afternoon and then smell like BBQ for the entirety of the second show.

So, if you enjoy some good chocolate chip cookies, let me know!  Also, don’t forget that if you have a recipe to share you can submit it.  I may try it out and feature it!
