Last week the NYT published a chocolate chip cookie recipe that the claim is the ultimate in amazing chocolate chip cookies. According to them, the 2 key tricks is resting the dough in the refrigerator for 36 hours before baking and making them enormous (large golfball size scoops of dough producing 6" cookies). The size is supposed to yield cookies with a crunchy outer rim, chewy inner ring and soft center. They also advise serving them warm.
For all sorts of reasons having to do with my being on a diet that's actually working and preferring to feed my 6 year old normal sized sweets, I'd rather make standard sized cookies than 6" cookies.
This leads me to 2 questions:
1. Has anyone made them and are they, in fact, the most fabulous thing ever to happen to a chocolate chip cookie?
2. Has anyone made them in a normal cookie size and how did that work out?
