Ultimate Chocolate Chip CookiePosted by in Food
We are big on chocolate chip cookies in this family, so the recipe in October Martha Stewart Everyday Food for Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies was like a gauntlet being thrown.
The recipe isn’t very different from your typical chocolate chip cookie recipe, except for the fact that it includes semisweet and milk chocolate. Nuts are optional according to the recipe. Dude Martha helped me whip these up on a weekend afternoon recently. I substituted whole wheat flour for one cup of the flour. Martha says to make these cookies big – 1/4 cup of dough for each. We made ours a little bit smaller. We made some with nuts and some without.
I was very happy with the cookie itself, but I don’t like the milk chocolate chips. I’ll stick with semisweet in the future. These cookies are very crispy, which wins points with me. If you like your cookies soft, this recipe isn’t for you. Overall it was very good.

I don’t think I would like the milk chocolate chips either. I’m a big fan of soft cookies, but my husband likes crisp ones, so it may be something to try here.
I don’t like milk chocolate chips either. When I want a chocolate chip cookie I want to really taste chocolate!
I’ll take my chocolate chip cookies with almost any kind of chocolate. And I like ’em chewy. Crispy is good if they’re not crumbly. Are these crumbly?
No, not crumbly at all. Very crisp and sort of solid when you take a bite.
Me too. Someday I am going to make choc chip cookies and use dark chocolate. But then I would probably eat the entire batch before it even got in the oven!
I love any kind of chocolate chip cookie. It takes me back to my childhood. My grandmother used to make the best cookies…they were all soft and warm. MMMMMMMM. Ironically, I think they are the same recipe that is now on the Tollhouse Cookie Package!
By the way, Brette, have you come across Martha’s recipe for mac and cheese? I made it several years ago and it was UNBELIEVABLY good and UNBELIEVABLY caloric (not just one kind of cheese for Martha!).
Yes, I’ve made her mac and cheese (well one of them – she has several – I like the one in the Cooking School cookbook). It’s terrific. Much better than Paula Deen’s, which has egg in it (blech!).
