Bouchon Bakery: Chocolate Chunk and Chip Cookies


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.
