Recipe News: How do the best chocolate chip cookie recipes stack up?

When it comes to chocolate chip cookies, people want to be carried away by the masterful blend of buttery dough, sweet vanilla and creamy chocolate that mark a perfect homemade cookie. Chocolatier Jacques Torres gives you that and a chewy, crisp-around-the-edges texture to boot. In a blind taste test of six chocolate chip cookie recipes, his was the runaway winner, regardless of the testers’ age, background or culinary knowledge. My search for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie began after I tasted a particularly good example. Was it the buttery flavor that made the cookie so good, I wondered, or the oozing chocolate? And what recipe, I wanted to know, would produce the cookie of my dreams? In my search for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, I started with recipes for six cookies, each with its own claim to fame. They were prepared with the same brand of ingredients, scooped the same size and baked in the same oven on identical cookie sheets. Only the amounts of ingredients and preparation techniques varied. When nuts were called for in recipes, we omitted them. My first choice for the tasting was the original Toll House Cookie from Nestlé, the one that started the chocolate chip cookie craze back in the 1930s when Ruth Wakefield of Whitman, Mass., added a chopped-up chocolate bar to her Butter Drop Do Cookies. To her surprise, and to the delight of cookie lovers since, the chocolate didn’t melt into the cookie but softened to a lush texture instead. Wakefield’s recipe has graced the back of packages of Nestlé semisweet chocolate morsels since 1939. Second on the must-make list was the ever-popular Mrs. Field’s/Neiman Marcus clone, the supposedly secret recipe made with ground oatmeal that has spawned more urban legends than you can shake a wooden spoon at. Next was Martha Stewart’s recipe. Could any tasting be complete without the doyenne of cooking’s recipe? Fourth was the chocolate chip cookie recipe from Cook’s Illustrated, the publication that tests dozens of recipes to come up with what they call the perfect one.

Includes recipes for:


  • JACQUES TORRES’ WINNING CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • ORIGINAL NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • SOFT AND CHEWY CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • AWARD-WINNING SOFT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES

  • MRS. FIELDS COOKIES

Recipe News: A healthier recipe for monkey bread

I absolutely love the recipe re-dos from Eat Better America. They have a fantastic recipe for zucchini bread that I've made with great results. This month they've rehabbed an Easter favorite -- monkey bread. Be warned -- eating things like monkey bread on a regular basis will not do your weight-loss plans any favors, but have a nibble every now and then -- like on holidays.

Recipe News: Recipe: Ham Panini with Smoked Gruyere and Pear

Ham leftovers are an easy way to crank out fast meals that pack tons of flavor. Just be sure to go easy on the salt. Most hams are cured and brined, which crank up the sodium. Taste the finished dish before adding more salt.

A frittata is an easy choice. Cut the ham into small chunks, then saute with diced onion and bell peppers. When the ham is lightly browned, pour several beaten eggs over it. When the eggs have set on the bottom, top it with cheese and broiler for several minutes.

Or try a ham and cheese... on pasta. Toss finely chopped ham, grated fontina (or other good melting) cheese with warm pasta and just a few tablespoons of the pasta cooking water for an all-but-instant mac and cheese. A splash of hot sauce give a nice finish.
