Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I made these cookies twice in the last 48 hours and they are AMAZING! I had made a different recipe a few days earlier, but to me they tasted a little dry, although my friends said they were good. After making these, people were grabbing 3 or 4 at a time and were gone within minutes! Also, I'm incredibly critical of my own baking and will never admit to having baked something yummy, except on a very rare occasion. THIS IS THAT RARE OCCASION! I did not alter the recipe at all and followed it exactly. After creaming the sugar and butter, I made very sure to beat the eggs and vanilla in for about 4 minutes (as another user suggested) until it was light and creamy (as the recipe suggests!). Also, 1/4 c was too big to me for a cookie and so I halved these. Cooking time doesn't change though. Last but not least, cook these for about 15 minutes, but most importantly, they should look unfinished. Like maybe 1 or 2 more minutes will get them looking right. Nope, when they still look just a little bit wet and not quite crisp around the edges yet, take them out! They will finish outside the oven to complete, award winning perfection!

Eclairs II
I really liked the eclairs themselves. Except I made a mistake and scooped and shaped them with a spatula onto the baking sheet, rather than piped them so they came out very weirdly shaped. BUT, they still hollowed out perfectly and they tasted great! I followed earlier suggestions NOT to open the oven for the entire time until done and also to add the eggs carefully, only beating in one egg at a time. The chocolate icing on the other hand - worst recipe I have ever used. The icing dried up way too fast and wouldn't even stick to the eclairs on their own (I tried to dip them in the chocolate for easy application).
