I’ll tell you right now that if you want the recipe, there are plenty of people who has posted the recipe. If you want it, you’ll have to Google it, but I won’t post it, because, you know, copyright infringement.
I will also say that there are a lot of people who baked these cookies, but claim the recipe is too fussy because it calls for baking by weight. I cannot stress enough the importance of doing this… Taking the few extra steps to weigh your ingredients. Frankly, you wind up with a consistent product if you do this. I am not sure that those who claim that baking by weight is too fussy and intimidating realize that things like moisture in the air (or lack thereof), or even being a little lazy with sifting your flour, can have a dramatic effect on the outcome of your product! Who wants a dry hockey puck? Not me! I have gotten tired of having a disappointing outcome when I get lazy with my ingredients. It’s not worth the time spent to make whatever you are making if you don’t turn out a superior product. /soap box
Anyway, chocolate chip cookies were always something I did with my mom. I really cherish those memories, and miss being able to do things like that with her, being on different sides of the country. On many occasions as a kid, my dad would happen to call home just as we were making the batter, and whilst my mother was in the other room talking to my dad, I would eat a significant portion of the dough. Urp. I’m sure we’ve all been there. And then my mom would often bake me cookies (usually I would beg) while away for the summer in Boston, or at college. Such great care packages. Love baked into every bite!
These cookies are great, but quite rich. I would say that the cookie (not the chocolate) was the star… I could have eaten that on its own without the chocolate in it. Also, I made them as recommend, and the way they serve them at Bouchon Bakery… Massively huge! Next time I think I will make them smaller, mostly because I wasted 1/4 of a cookie, not being able to eat the whole thing.
