We were invited to a chili cook-off block party tonight. I've made chili in the past, but I haven't found a recipe yet that's knocked my socks off, so instead of chili, I baked cookies. Specifically, My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies (pg 68) from Dorie Greenspan's Baking. I, for one, would rather have cookies than fourteen pots of chili, and I can't imagine anyone will mind.
Plus, Dorie has fussier baking instructions. She says to only bake one tray at a time, and you have to spin it midway through baking. I know that's all in the interest of even baking, but it's an added step that I wouldn't appreciate if I was making these while Charlie was up and running around. Fortunately, he's napping.
I should be happy that I'm not compulsively eating one cookie off each tray as it comes out of the oven (for quality-control purposes, of course), but I'm not.
Conclusion: I love Toll House. I like these. Toll House reigns supreme.
