“the” chocolate chip cookies

Choc chip cookies

These cookies are damn awesome. My roommate said they are like “scone cookies”… really soft and pillowy. The recipe has the odd ingredient of a pack of instant vanilla pudding mix. It made about a billion cookies (3 dozen).

The NYT/David Leite/Jacque Torres chocolate chip cookie recipe still remains my favorite, but that one requires 2 different types of flour, 24 hour refrigeration prior to baking, fancy chocolate feves – not something you wanna make on a whim. This simple one takes a lot less work, time, and the ingredients are simple and easy.
