After some internal debate, I added my recipe for chocolate chip cookies to the recipe list. Why so much debate you may wonder? There's nothing "special" about the recipe, except that I've added a few tweaks that make for an excellent cookie.
• High quality, double strength, Madagascar Vanilla.
• The best quality chocolate you can find (grocery store, garden variety semi-sweet chocolate chips are not what I'm talking about).
• Dark brown sugar.
Now, about the Vanilla, yes it is expensive, almost prohibitively so, however, I cannot suitably describe the richness in flavor it will add. Splurge, you won't regret it (and yes - use 2 teaspoons). The same rule applies for the chocolate, go for the best quality stuff you can find. As for the dark brown sugar, this also adds a richness to the cookie not present with the usage of light brown sugar.
