I've featured chocolate chip cookies (and slight variations) a couple of times, but I think it's fair to say I'd always hoped to find a recipe this flawless. I had actually read about these on Kate's blog almost a year ago and I'd simply been waiting for the right time to make them. The truth is - they require some serious patience, something that I have very little of when it comes to cookie dough. The process itself isn't difficult or time consuming, but the key to the magic is all in the wait time once the dough has been prepared (36 hours, to be exact). I baked up a batch for one of my best friend's birthday and sure enough, they really were that good. It sounds silly to say, but they were truly the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever had.
