When I was little my grandmother always had a plate of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies sitting on her kitchen counter. They weren’t the large cookies you see now days in bakeries. They were relatively small, perfectly round, two bite cookies. The cookies always had a soft interior, and were slightly crisp on the edges.
My grandmother would sit us down at the kitchen table, pour us a cold glass of milk (put into commemorative Snoopy glasses from a popular fast food chain), and hand us a plate of her delicious cookies. When my grandparents sold their home I remember thinking, “All I really want to have is the Snoopy glasses and my grandmother's chocolate chip cookie recipe.” Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get either one, but it started my search for the chocolate chip recipe of my childhood.
Throughout the years I have made my share of cookie recipes, both professionally and personally, but nothing has quite come close to my grandmother's delicious cookie until now..... David Lebovitz is a pastry genius! I love his recipes, particularly his recipe for chocolate chip cookies. They are the closest recipe to my grandmother's I have come across so far. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
