Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Am constantly in search of the recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookie to realise there's none. Everyone has their own definition of a great cookie. Some like it crispy, some like it with a massive chocolate chip invasion, some like it soft and chewy. I like it chewy! But bf likes it crispy and crunchy, think: Famous Amos, which till this day, I'm still figuring out how -_- Hey I guess it's famous for a reason ya.

Decided to give my favorite chef a shot at her recipe and not disappointed at all! It gives the melt-in-your-mouth kind of texture, yet chewy at the same time. Not as chewy as the ones I had from Subway though, but still great.

Didn't listen to Ms Anna's instructions to bake it at a slightly lower temperature than most cookie recipes, and tried one batch with +10°C baking temperature and ended up with puffy cookies, probably due to the baking soda. Puffy ain't my kind of cookies hurhur. Did a little modification by reducing the sugar by a teeny weeny bit, will reduce a little more butter and just a bit of sugar in my next try, for health reasons ahahaha! Will probably give Alton Brown's recipe a shot the next time. hmm.
