The chocolate chip cookie, an undeniable classic. It’s a simple recipe no matter how you toss it. Sure, you can get a bit crispier or fluffier. You can even get spicy if you’re so inclined. But when push comes to shove it’s going to boil down to the simple mix of some sugar, grease, milk, flour, soda and (of course) chocolate chips.
My favourite chocolate chip recipe that I love on account of it’s complete geekiness is found in Cooking for Geeks (which is probably one of my top favourite books, not just favourite cook book). One feature is on Meg Hourihan (co-founder of blogger.com, web consultant, freelance writer with a bit of a baking bug). She came up with this “Mean Chocolate Chip Recipe” that averaged out 30-40 different chocolate chip recipes that were submitted to her when she posed a challenge on-line for the best chocolate cookie recipe. You’ll have to pick up the book to get it, but I will warn you that you need a very precise scale to make it.

This recipe comes by way of post-punk kitchen (on oft cited resource). It’s time to turn up some solid jams and get baking!
