Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, as the name of this post suggests, this is the single best iteration of "chocolate chip cookie" I've ever made.

Possibly because the wife and I made it a collaborative effort, or possibly because we put the effort in and researched a whole bunch of recipes, but this was hands-down-awesome-clown.

I'm actually not going to list the recipe here.  Because I'm evil.

Muah hah hah ahh hah ha

No, seriously if you're interested I can send it your way, just give me your email address... but really this was just to boast at how awesome these cookies were.

So I took some lovely photos for all to see and be jealous.

I will say a few things about this recipe.

First, we browned the butter.  Browning butter is a great way to get a tremendous amount of butter "flavour" without necessarily needing to use a large quantity of butter.  Just don't burn the butter.  :)

Also, parchment paper is a must-have.  I don't make any baked goods without parchment liner, but cookies most definitely should be on parchment.

We used an actual Hershey's milk chocolate bar instead of semi-sweet bakers chocolate or chocolate chips.  And it was delightful.

Anyway, swim in jealousy.  Swim in until your hands get all pruney.
