Chocolate Chip Cookie Test No. 14: Bon Appetit's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

January 19, 2021

Now that I've had the Bon Appetit Channel on almost every day for the past two months, it only seemed fitting that I bake their version of the ubiquitous chocolate chip cookie. Bon Appetit YouTube Channel star, Chris Morocco, developed BA's best Chocolate Chip Cookie a crispy-edged, chewy-centered cookie, which describes all the characteristics that I love about a perfect chocolate chip cookie. 
Recipe Notes: 

  • calls for browning butter
  • uses dark brown sugar
  • uses only baking soda
  • 1 egg + 2 egg yolks 
  • no wait/rest time for dough. can be baked immediately. 
  • no stand mixer required (but I missed using mine, tbh). 
Overall: I'll always love a cookie with brown butter and these were perfectly chewy while having crispy edges. I baked several after making the dough and then aged the rest of the dough for 70 hours to develop the flavor more. They were less sweet and had a deeper flavor after this wait period, although the recipe didn't ask for this step (I highly recommend doing that if you have the time and patience). 🍪🍪🍪🍪
