Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies Made Quickly

Stop your perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe searching.  The answer is here.  Take my hand, I’m taking you to the Chocolate Chip Cookie mothership.

A few years ago there were quite a buzz on a popular recipe that the New York Times featured, it was a close adaptation to Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip cookies. If you’ever ever had a Jacques Torres cookie then you can agree they are some darn good cookies.    Turn the clock ahead almost 6 years later and I finally got around to make this cherished recipe that had people raving and gawking.  So I got all the ingredients ready and realized 2 things 1) I did not have the type of chocolate Mr. Torres recommended and I was not spending $12 on it, 2) Refrigerate the dough for 36 hours.  Wait, what?  This girl wants cookies now. 36 hours of waiting? Are you crazy?  In 36 hours the world could be over and here I will be, laying on the zombie apocalypse covered sidewalk crying out “But… my… cookies…are…. still…in the…refrigerator”.  No way.  No way.  I let them chill for 30 minutes, that’s all the willpower I have.

So taking the original recipe and tweaking it with my own chocolate, changing the servings, amount of ingredients and size of cookies as well as the process for chilling, I have to declare these cookies The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies ever.  I’m totally being serious.  Not only are they quite possibly the prettiest cookies I ever baked, but they are just so perfect tasting.  They are everything a chocolate chip cookie should be, sweet, but salty on top.    Every single person I have fed these cookies to are amazed they aren’t bakery bought and then immediately eat 5 more cookies than they told themselves they would eat. They’re magic.
