The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie — Comfort Food Feast

by in Family, Recipes, January 16th, 2013

Chocolate Chip CookiesWe all get a bit territorial over our chocolate chip cookies. Some like them so crispy a discernible crunch ensues. Others like them so soft that it’s unclear whether they ever reached the oven. In the end, however, there’s no argument over this cookie’s ability to bring us back — especially when a glass of milk is involved. Preheat those ovens. It’s time for some cookies.

The recipe for classic Chocolate Chip Cookies, in reality, needs no fiddling. It’s soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. Just out of the oven, the chocolate chips are so gooey they stick to your fingers.

Still, Food Network Magazine has its own take on the many faces of the chocolate chip cookie, perfect for those a bit particular about consistency. Check out its recipes for Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, Crispy Chocolate Chip Cookies and even Cakey Chocolate Chip Cookies.

For those looking for a cookie that jives with your healthy eating regime, opt for Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies (pictured above), made from ground oats, whole wheat pastry flour, agave nectar and a responsible amount of butter.

Even if you love the classic cookie, Giada’s Hazelnut Chocolate Chip Cookies are quick to become a family favorite. Oats add texture, toffee brings a buttery quality and nuts allow for a crunch factor.

The adventurous cookie lover will feel right at home with Food Network Magazine‘s Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Bacon Cookies, which are baked with real bacon, honey-roasted peanuts and creamy peanut butter.

Food Network Magazine also created a liquid rendition with its Chocolate Chip Cookie Smoothie. Slurp all that cookie goodness straight from a straw.

Even if your trusty chocolate chip recipe seems to do the trick, go ahead and try a batch fresh from this list.

    I make my Chocolate Chip Cookies from scratch and I always add in some pecan pieces and some orange extract. I prefer them on the crunchy side, and I also freeze them before eating them. It always seem's to bring out the flavor so much better. The only thing that can make them taste any better is to dip them into some ice cold milk. OH!! Oh!!!, The oven is calling! Better get my cookies out!!

    I am surprized at the some of the reviews I have read on the change in sharing some recipes, especially on non-vegan or non-fat-free foods. I am a nurse, who was over 300 lbs when I trying to be "healthy." I now weigh in at about 145-150 lbs, and I eat whatever I want, just in smaller amounts. I am glad that the nutritional information has helped people lower thier wieght, get a better control of disease symptoms, and feel better in general, but, come on!!!! Some of us like southern cooking, chocolate, pecans, and, even sweet tea. THANK YOU for these recipes Oprah! (and staff!!!)Read more:

    contained in this article. New information being distributed to the masses seems to show that not only is it how much food that we eat, but the origins as well. Man made items — especially those with high fructose corn syrup seem to be at the center of a controversy that isn't likely to go away
