Yet Another Chocolate Chip Cookie…

No Tuesdays with Dorie this week, we were not feeling the French Pear Tart, instead I bring you yet another chocolate chip cookie. Are you sick of the chocolate chip cookie recipes yet? If so, I truly apologize, but as I have mentioned before, I have a slight case of OCD. Therefore, when I get on some sort of kick, I become a wee bit obsessed with it until it comes out damn near perfect. I have tried countless chocolate chip cookie recipes, only a few being chronicled on this blog, but I have yet to find perfection. I was a huge fan of “The Chewy,” but my search continues…

I first saw this recipe on Em’s site, but dismissed it for months…BIG mistake, these cookies are super delicious. The cooking method produces a crisp outside, with a chewy inside…and in my opinion this combination of textures is to die for! Overall, these cookies are really tasty, I guarantee they will be gobbled up in no time!

Deryl Bear’s Bear Chocolate Chip Cookies
Here are my modifications:
-Subbed Butter Flavored Crisco for half the butter
-Left out the nuts
-Chilled overnight then rolled into balls; each weighing 1.3 ounces
Make these cookies today, I promise someone will want to plant a big wet kiss on you for it!

    I am always ready for another chocolate chip cookie! They are my fav!

    So, I will have a warm chocolate chip cookie at my last meal. Actually, I will have way more than one. They look sooo good. I can’t make them when it’s just me because I’ll eat all of them in about 48 hours. Well, actually, I do that no matter what but when it’s just me there’s no one else to blame!
    I love the sub of butter flavored crisco. I’ve always wanted to try that but I keep chickening out.

    Are these the top CCC so far? Your testing is saving me time!! I’ve got Alton Brown’s Chewy and the NYTimes one high on my list.

    I have to try these, since I, too, think that’s the perfect combo of textures!

    Cookies are really an obsession and addiction for me. Not a good thing when you are trying to shake off the weight, right? I love Alton Brown’s The Chewy. Definitely one of my favorites! Good luck with your efforts.

    Oh man! I thought I needn’t look any further for a new cookie recipe after the NYT cookies, but I think I’m going to have to give these a shot! They look great!


  13. Flourchild — January 6, 2009 at 1:53 pm

    Yum I love cookies and these look extra good. One can never have to many cookie recipes! Thanks for sharing.

    I am on the cooks illustrated test list and they sent over their version for the best Chocolate Chip Cookie. I made them, and not bad, but you might want to try for yourself.
    And one can never have too many cookies in their life! :)

    Oh, Just YUM.



  20. Sam — January 6, 2009 at 10:13 pm

    These look absolutely wonderful! Em’s recipes are widely popular so I’ve no doubt they’ll be a hit. My husband is addicted to the Betty Crocker ultimates but my oldest son saw the pic of these on foodgawker and asked me to make them. So I am today. Thanks for posting!


  21. pigpigscorner — January 7, 2009 at 7:35 am
