  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Reduce speed to low and add both flours, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, and chocolate; mix until well combined.

  • Using a 4-ounce scoop for larger cookies or a 1-ounce scoop for smaller cookies, scoop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake until lightly browned, but still soft, about 20 minutes for larger cookies and about 15 minutes for smaller cookies. Cool slightly on baking sheets before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

I have to say that these were the absolute WORST cookies I have ever eaten! I decided to make this recipe with a friend (who owns her own bakery) because the pictures looked so delicious, but these cookies were a complete let down. We followed each step exactly how it is outlined here, but the cookies tasted overwhelmingly like gluey flour and were not sweet at all, despite all the sugar. Save yourself the time, money, and effort and find an easier recipe!

ATTENTION!!! Please rest the dough for at least 24 hours before baking these cookies. 72 hours is the best. You need it to rest the gluten and achieve the best possible results for this recipe. You can make pastry/cake flour by measuring X cups of bread flour, removing 2 tablespoons of flour from each of the X cups, replacing with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. You HAVE TO sift all flour used, at least 5 times, along with all the leavening agents used. Enjoy :)

I made these cookies 3 different times, one for the holidays and gave out in a cookie box everybody loved them! two for New Years Eve they did not last! they were gone in 30 minutes! third time last week they were all gone within two days! I have mix the cocoa with semi sweet chocolate chips half and half, and yes it is not easy chopping away at the chocolate chips but its worth it!

I love this recipe. Really yummy. I did not have pastry flour, I used 1 cup cake flour, plus 1T cake flour and 2 cups AP flour, plus 1T. I also used the 3cups of bread flour. I used my muffin-sized scoop and cooked the cookies 18-19 minutes. I got more cookies than the recipe indicates, 31 total. I really love these. I did use 1T kosher salt and did not find the cookies salty. I made my first batch one day and another batch the next, I saw no difference in performance or taste.

I just got a better look at this recipe and saw that it calls for 6 cups of flour?!?! That can't be right. I usually use 7 cups of flour when making 2 loaves of bread. And this is for a batch of cookies? I think someone mis-typed something.

"Bread Flour" is flour with a high protein content. High protein flour makes more gluten and is good for breads. "Pastry flour" has a low protein content, which makes less gluten and is better for delicate cakes and pastries. You can go to a professional bakery and ask them what the names are for each of these flours.

Hands down THE WORST cookie recipe ever. I baked a one batch of these for the kids at Rosie's Place I'm working with today and I am going to have to buy store-bought replacement cookies! These cookies are HARD AS ROCKS. Also, this recipe was a pain in the neck- so much batter, it wouldn't even fit in my trusty kitchenaid. And the chips don't stick in the batter, they sort of separate. WHAT A NIGHTMARE. I love Martha's recipes, but this one is a cruel joke.

Never dip and scoop flour unless you are scaling it. When using cups to measure flour, always spoon it lightly and level it off. Four cups of spooned and levelled flour is about 1 pound, but I would suggest using the cup method, weighing the results, and noting it for the next time you make the recipe. Also, the recipe never tells you when to add the salt! Mix it in with the dry ingredients. Who tested and proofread this recipe?

I added 200 grams of chocolate (8 oz) and the result was great. It holds perfectly and don't spread and flattens. I made small ones and it was perfect size and time (15 minutes) Made exactly 36 cookies. Never mind the pastry flour!

I'm not sure why some comments were so negative. These cookies are truly outstanding. If the recipe is followed exactly as written with quality chocolate chunks (I used Guittard chunks that I purchased from The Bakers Catalog), they are a spectacular cookie! I recommend the larger size. I used a 1/4 measure cup since I did not have a 4 oz scoop. Delish.

There was a great related article in the NYTimes this week - http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/09/dining/09chip.html. In Torres' bakery (and top bakeries all over NYC), he lets the dough refrigerate for a few days; the article which features a similar recipe to the one above recommends refrigeration of 36-72 hrs. This allows for the liquids (eggs) to be fully absorbed in the dough - which makes it firmer and bake more consistently. I would highly recommend trying it - it makes a huge difference!

I do several things to make the cookies hold their shape. I mix all the dry ingredients together before adding it to the butter and sugar. Also, I roll the dough into balls, usually fairly large (full recipe yields 3 dozen), and I put the rolled dough into the freezer for about 20 minutes then straight to the oven. This keeps the insides chewy but lets the outsides brown. It also gives it the loftiness. I also add toasted walnuts to mine and a mix of milk and semisweet chocolate. Amazing!

Well I bought much less chocolate than I was supposed to, only 6 ounces and also added 6 ounces of walnuts, and they had a good amount of chocolate, so I bet it's tasty but would think 2 pounds of chocolate makes a very, very rich cookie. Anyway, the family loved the cookies (I did as well) and I can report that they keep well in the open air, it took about three days for them to work through all the cookies and they kept beautifully.

Using quality ingredients make a big difference with this recipe. The best combination I've found (given the limits of what's available in my local supermarket) is 2/3 Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate, 1/3 Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate and King Arthur flour. Made with these ingredients, the cookies are absolutely delicious and come out thicker and richer than with Nestle chocolate chips.

Since I live in a country where you can't find chocolate chips, let me pass on a good tip for making them. Put the baking chocolate in a zip-lock plastic bag and bash it up with a hammer! More suggestions: choose the flattest brand of baking chocolate, and protect the bag with the wrapper from the chocolate so the hammer doesn't make holes in the bag.

This is a nice chocolate chip cookie, but it's not mind-blowing. I noticed the dough is lighter than cookies made with all-purpose flour, but we didn't taste a difference. I'd make them again (mainly to use the rest of the bread and pastry flour I bought for these cookies), but I am still searching for the ultimate chocolate chip cookie. Adaptations: 2 pounds of chocolate is a lot even for this amount of dough. I stopped at about 24 ounces and they were very rich.

The reason for the different flours is because of the gluten formed by the proteins in the flour. Gluten is what imparts a chewy, elastic crumb - desirable in bread, which is why bread flour is higher in protein. Pastry flour is much lower in gluten-forming protein, which is why we use it for cakes and cookies and things we want to be tender. I haven't made cookies with bread flour before - I'm curious to see what difference it makes!

My sister and I are foodies living in New York City. Our LOVE for chocolate chip cookies has put us all over the city in search of the best. If doughy and chewy is what you're after: Levain Bakery it is, crispy and crunchy: try City Bakery. But we always find ourselves going back to the Jacques Torres' shops for theirs. Crisp exterior, moist, tender inside and the chocolate is what sets it apart from the others. I can't believe the recipe has been here all along, can't wait to try it...

I have made this and love it, but would love to know why the different flours. The difference between flours is in the percentage of protein, pastry flour being 8-10% (low), and bread flour being 12-14% (high). This recipe is half and half (almost), producing 10-12% protein, which is exactly what all purpose flour is. Any ideas on a good reason for the different flours?

Huge disappointment. I have a high bar for choc. chip cookies--my favorite recipe always gets raves and it never fails. This recipe required special flours (which I may never use again) and the hassle/mess of chopping dark chocolate, all for a cookie that is too chewy and bland--more like eating a chunk of melted choclate. If I wanted that, I'd make a chocolate cookie or a good Valrhona brownie.

Call wedding cake shops to find pastry flour. If you can't find pastry flour, you can mix you own by combining cake flour and all-purpose flour. Combine in a ratio somewhere between two parts cake flour to one part all-purpose and one part cake flour to one part all-purpose. If you can't decide go half and half.

I made these using partial whole wheat / unbleached white. Have to sift the wheat and then add it to the white flour. They ROCKED! Made them much chewier....

These are the greatest chocolate chip cookies ever. I was curious to how they would taste with the different types of flours and much to my suprise the texture is wonderful. These will be the official chocolate chip cookie in my house.
