What is the best recipe for chocolate chip cookies?
Search for the Cook's Illustrated Best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe.
Try a google search for "Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies," too. Pain in the butt to make, but divine.
Search the NY Times archive. They had an article about chocolate chip cookies, I think in the last 12 mos. Whatever recipe you use, it is always improved by having it sit in the fridge for at least 24 hours. I do this with all cookie recipes now because they taste better when fully hydrated.
Hands down the NYT recipe. Ezra Pound Cake gives you the recipe AND a lovely description as to why: http://www.ezrapoundcake.com/archives/3509
