Chocolate Chip Cookie Test No. 18-Dorie Greenspan's Classic

May 17, 2022

I've been in possession of Dorie Greenspan's gigantic book on cookies for almost year and a half and I can now finally say that I've baked her classic chocolate chip cookie recipe. She has since updated this twenty year old recipe to a spice-filled one but I wanted to start with her classic first. 
For those of you who don't know Dorie, Dorie Greenspan is the iconic baking expert who has written numerous cookbooks and also penned a column for the New York Times Magazine. So it's only fitting that I try this cookie queen's go-to recipe. 

Her classic chocolate chip cookie recipe was written two decades ago and takes its inspiration from the famous Toll House Cookie recipe

Recipe Notes: 
  • uses room temperature, softened butter 
  • doesn't specify light or dark brown sugar
  • only baking soda is used
  • chopped chocolate is preferred although she does give measurements if chips are used
  • no rest time is needed for the dough although she recommends letting it rest for an hour or up to a day
The Results: These are a tasty, no frills chocolate chip cookie, which definitely reminds me of the Toll House cookie recipe. They are a little flatter than the last few cookies I have baked so you get less chewiness in the center. Overall a good, basic recipe that is on the sweeter side but isn't that what a cookie is for?!? 🍪🍪🍪
