Everyone has a favourite chocolate chip cookie recipe, right? After extensive research on the matter (and by research, I mean eating), my top pick is The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie, from Cook's Illustrated. Nipping at it's crumbs in second place is the infamous recipe by Jacques Torres.
All's fair in love and cookies. And since I've made the Cook's Illustrated and Jacques Torres recipes more than once (I won't give out actual numbers), I thought I should also revisit the 3rd runner up, Alton Brown's The Chewy...with the addition of salty pretzels and sweet, butterscotch chips.
If you love chunky, clunky, chewy cookies, I think you will fall in love with this recipe. It has the nutty, warmth of brown butter from Cook's Illustrated, and the softness and texture that's required from a great c.c. cookie. Plus, thanks to chopped pretzels, they also have a pleasant crunch nestled in-between each chewy bite.
I'm kind of excited to
