Jacques Torres makes the best chocolate chip cookies in New York. They're chocolatey and chewy and chunky and bittersweet and perfect. Well, here's the recipe to make them at home. YUM!

We did see on telly that there's a place called Petrossian (I think the Upper East Side?) that has great cookies too. Wonder how it compares.

I need to try this recipe!

Becca said...

The worst decision I ever made was to make some of this cookie dough and freeze it to have on hand when needed (it was gone in two days. And by worst decision, B mean best).

We live just down the street from Jacques Torres in Dumbo, and when I saw the title, I was hoping you'd say these were the best:). My husband loves them! (I love the smell, but am allergic to chocolate;).)

The Cyclist's Wife said...

Oh my.

Tamar said...

I've done a bit of a NYC cookie taste test and I think Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side has the best chocolate chip cookies actually!

Carried Away said...

They look delicious...i'll have to try them soon.

Bobby said...

Oh my. Not the best thing to see after you've just had an unpleasant experience on the (lying) scale :) But I'm totally pinning it and making them this weekend.

sarahbaker said...

Until I moved to L.A., I worked right across the street from Jacques at the Penguin office! They are hands down the best cookies. And, if you go in there for coffee, they'll put a shot of their unbelievable European style hot chocolate in there for you--it's amazing.

Caro said...

Oh man, they sure DO make the best cookies! I've bought the mix from the store and made it at home before, but I love having the recipe now! Thanks for sharing!

Mersey said...

I have always been a fan of the regular Tolhouse recipe. This recipe look's very similar to Tolhouse's...only better!!

Jade said...

I'm already starving as it is, so I think it's safe to say the picture of the cookie hasn't helped haha :)

Great post!

It looks amazing! :)

Cassandra Marie said...

Wow...I usually just take the easy route and bake a roll of the pillsbury kind, but these look sooo good, I just might have to try them out :)

Amy Henderson said...

oh my! And I did so good eatting carrot sticks all morning lol

How delicious! We here at Justin's have a sweet tooth and might I suggest adding Justin's Peanut Butter Cups to home baked cookies, it will taste quite delicious!

abigail said...

found these on Pinterest and we made them that night!

A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! Of course you have to plan ahead since it calls for huge full chocolate bars, WORTH IT!

and the recipe was so big, we halved it and then froze the rest to have ready to bake cookies, so yummy. My new favorite cookie!

I have been making these since they came out in the new york times, they really are the best chocolate recipe of all time. It's worth the wait if you chill in the fridge as it says.

DELICIOUS!

Brodsky Organization said...

These look absolutely delicious! We love your preferences in cookies! We'd have to agree with all of them. Especially leaving the nuts out. We might have to up the chocolate to cookie ratio...

Cait said...

LOVE these cookies. Putting them in the fridge overnight really does make them much more delicious....

The A and B Stories said...

I am making these IMMEDIATELY!

Spamber said...

I used to live right by Jacques Torres in Brooklyn and while their spicy hot chocolate is wonderful, Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side takes the cake! I dream about Levain cookies and even now, living on the opposite side of the country, I have Levain cookies shipped to my house just so I can taste a little bit of heaven every now and then :)

Katie said...

made these today.....amazinnnng

Kristina Larson said...

I'm frequently inspired by recipes online (who isn't?!) but this one actually moved from an inspirational bookmark to reality. I bought the special ingredients and everything. Now it's all I can do to wait the recommended 24 hours before baking!

Robyn said...

Chocolate chip cookies are really an all time favorite for both kids and adults alike. There are various recipes for this but this recipe is worth trying. Surely kids and adults will enjoy preparing this at home.
