Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here they are. The best cookies ever.  Cooks Illustrated uses some subtle techniques to tweak the traditional ingredients that go into a chocolate chip cookie recipe.  For example: a large portion of the butter is melted first then removed from the saucepan into a bowl with the rest of the butter to be mixed into it.  Then you add 1 whole egg and 1 egg yolk, vanilla and sugars.  This is mixed. And mixed. And mixed.  And then mixed some more until ALL of the sugar is COMPLETELY dissolved. Whisk it folks. Whisk it good with resting of about 2 mins between about 30 seconds of whisking. ALL sugar MUST be dissolved.  Add your dry and chips and you are ready to bake. Use about 3 tablespoons of dough and bake for about 8 to 12 mins. depending on your oven.  Set to 350 F.  Lovely chewy cookies every time. Even if they are over baked.  ENJOY!
