|The Perfect Cookie|
9/16/09: NEW UPDATE: Alex Ortiz (photographer) and I are putting together a step-by-step, photo-illustrated chocolate chip cookie (CCC) making tutorial. Yes, they are simple, but there's something satisfying about doing a simple task perfectly. Your friends/family will agree when they eat your perfect CCCs.
I have pursued the perfect chocolate chip cookie for the last 20 years. Along the way I've made tens of thousands of cookies, tested scores of recipes, and sampled more cookies than is probably good for me. And I will gladly share with you the techniques, knowhow, and recipe that you need to make the best cookie you will ever taste.
If you learn and follow these techniques, I guarantee that yours will be the first empty platter at the next potluck. Children will congregate at your house after school. Church will let let out early on days that you have snack duty. And you just might find yourself making new friends, scoring that big promotion, and spreading happiness wherever you and your delectable cookies choose to go.
Hyperbole? Perhaps. But consider this:
