I've made a lot of chocolate chip cookies since Libby first taught me how as a child. Most turn out rather flat which I just dislike on an aesthetic factor. Even if they taste good, which often they don't, I just can't get over them looking like wrinkled up, dirty pancakes.
This recipe from The New York Times is by far, hands down, the best recipe I've ever made. And I have nothing else to say about that.
