My Preferred Cookie Recipe

If you want a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, below is the one I use. Just use the techniques I described above and you'll be alright. Oh, make sure the baking soda and flour are well mixed before being added to the batter.

This recipe comes from Sherry Yard's The Secrets of Baking. Sherry is not only one of the best pastry chefs in the country, she's also a great educator. This book won a James Beard award (the Oscars of cooking). If you want to be able to make any dessert on earth, this is the book for you.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1.5 cups flour
.5 teaspoon baking soda
.25 lb (one stick) cold unsalted butter
.5 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
.5 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
.25 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg at room temperature
7 ounces bittersweet chocolate, cut into .5 inch chunks
