From an article: Quest for the perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie found here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/09/dining/09chip.html?_r=1&ref=dining&oref=slogin I've made these twice since the article was published a week ago. These cookies are awesome. I couldn't find the chocolate ovals at whole foods, so I just used bittersweet chocolate chips and they were great! I thought the salt on top would be weird but I tried it both ways and liked it better with the salt. Go figure!!
