Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
These really are the best. The only time I've made these and got a bad batch (cooked outside, not inside) was in a dodgy oven. Otherwise they turn out brilliant everytime.

I made this for a Kris Kringle present just before Christmas and it turned out great. I should say that I live in rented accomodation with a poorly stocked kitchen so while baking it had no weighing scales, no sieve, no electric whisk (no whisk of any kind actually - I used a fork), no rolling pin, no baking trays (used a silcone baking sheet), only one shelf in the oven, no wire rack to cool it on and no cake board. So I made an educated guess as to the amounts, smoothed it out by patting tinfoil over it, and improvised a cake board with a piece of thick cardboard and more tinfoil. I went out and bought an icing syringe, which for €2.50 did the job of decorating nicely. Despite the lack of normal kitchen implements this recipe still turned out great so I couldn't give it anything less than 5 stars :-) Oh, like other reviewers I did use almost twice as much flour as the recipe called for so that is one little alteration. I've made the recipe again since using the specified amount of flour though, and it worked too. The spice came through stronger which was nice. And I found that if you have biscuit molds the dough holds the shape really well.
