Recipe Traitor.

I consider myself a pretty extreme loyalist when it comes to some maybe not so important things. To other things, not so much. (IE: diets, learning the piano, the few jobs I had in high school, high school... you get the idea.) The little things I do choose to be loyal to though, boy do I! One of the things that I've been extremely faithful to all my life, is my chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have been using said recipe (it's safe to say everyday) since the day I could say "cookie" (which apparently was my first word...so yes I could probably bake cookies while in a coma). Anyway, when I saw these cookies on Pinterest paired with the words "New York Times' Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe", I was a teensy bit skeptical. Much to my dismay, I gave them a try anyway. I may have felt a twinge of guilt every time I had to double-check a measurement, but the guilt wore off once I tasted the dough. (And then a different type of guilt ensued..)

Anyway, this is basically just a really long-winded way of saying that I agree with NY Best Times' decision, these cookies are all types of unreal. I'm giving you permission to cheat on your favorite cookie recipe and give these a try, you won't regret it. (If you think I'm being overly dramatic about all of this, you don't love cookies as much as I do.) Also, don't think you're too good for bread or cake flour. Nobody is.

I also found these on Pinterest and cheated on my cookie recipe. These are my new all time favorite cookie ever! Totally worth the wait in the fridge for these. :)

So funny that you posted this today because last night I watched the Friends episode where Monica is trying to figure out Phoebe's grandma's secret chocolate chip cookie recipe only to learn that it's actually the Nestlé Tollhouse recipe. So obviously, I'm craving chocolate chip cookies.
