Tuesdays With Dorie: Chocolate Chip Cookies

I (and about 20 other co-workers) got some really crappy, crummy news today, and since I don’t comfort eat, I decided to do some comfort baking. It works for me!

So, it’s been a little while since I did a Tuesdays With Dorie post, but it wasn’t for lack of wanting to! With the big holidays now out of the way I have more time to focus on the stuff I truly enjoy doing, and unsurprisingly, baking is one of those.

This week’s Tuesdays With Dorie is My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, selected by Kait of Kait’s Plate.

I love chocolate chip cookies — who doesn’t? But I tend to like the ones that are thick and chewy, not thin and crispy. In fact, I call those cow patty cookies because, well, that’s what they look like! These, however cow patty-ish they may look, tasted like anything but. They were amazing! Though I don’t know that I’d call them the best I’ve ever had (I’ll write about those later), they are very, very good.

I had everything on hand except some good bittersweet chocolate, though I did have a couple of bars of Hershey’s Special Dark in my chocolate drawer (you don’t have a chocolate drawer?). Since Hershey’s is better baked with than eaten plain (yuck), I chopped it all up (very therapeutic) into some nice chunks.

Like Kait, I also ended up bringing down the baking time to nine minutes and kept the dough in the fridge while the cookies in the oven baked.

Kait’s got the recipe on her blog.

My happy place
