Chocolate Chip Cookies

With more than 100 recipes for chocolate chip cookies, why do we need another? Because this one is simply divine and originated in the kitchen of one of the finest bakers known. Not me silly, none other than Jacques Torres who lives by the credo “Life is short, eat dessert first.” I love his recipes and consider anything prepared from his books a necessary indulgence. Life just tastes better with chocolate. Should you find yourself in New York be sure to visit one of his stores. Not on the standard list of attractions but pure nirvana for chocoholics. Back to the cookie, it is sinful and sultry and gooey yet not overly sweet. Shhhh, the secret is the corn syrup and shaved chocolate in the dough. As far as the chocolate choices, pick your favorites. My suggestion is shaved dark chocolate with semi-sweet chips/chunks and toasted pecans. (In a July 2008 NYT article Chef Torres noted getting a superior result with chocolate chip cookies by chilling the dough between 12 and 48 hours before baking. Will have to give this a try soon.)
