My 90-year-old grandmother has a secret: She's in love with Walker, Texas Ranger. She's seen every episode countless times (not hard after we set her up with a DVD player and the series in a boxed set) but if the show happens to come on TV, she is always eager to watch it again.
The beauty of a box of Entenmann's Chocolate Chip Cookies is that they have that perfect chewy on the inside, crisp around the edges thing going on. They're soft without being squishy, crunchy minus the brittle, and never stick around long—due to the fact that they're pretty tasty, too.

Ah, Schenectady Gazette, where would we be without you? Today, for instance, you informed us that five more Friendly's locations (including Glenville!) have closed and that ham radio is a blossoming hobby among the youth of upstate New York. Sure, I was sad to discover that ham radio is not a new EpicMealTime video, but I was interested in the story nonetheless. Most importantly, though, is your contribution to culinary history. For without you, we might never have made peanut butter cookies with their signature fork-tine imprint.

The trick to their height is rolling them into big balls instead of just flinging them down on the sheet, and then letting them chill overnight in the fridge. The final cookies are buttery and extra oaty, and the sprinkling of fleur de sel is an unexpected lip-smacking delight.
Sometimes I tell people that I like baking, but in reality I think I just like eating chocolate chip cookies, and the only way I can guarantee chocolate chip cookie-derived happiness is by baking them myself. Ad Hoc's chocolate chip cookie recipe is my go-to dessert for birthdays, parties, pot lucks, and the like—not to the point that I have it memorized, but it has the honor of being written on a small piece of paper taped to my refrigerator.
Wait, Chocolate Chip Day? That is a real thing? Apparently it was yesterday, on May 15. Other sources have suggested it's in August. But as we've concluded before, does it really matter?! The answer: no. In honor of Chocolate Chip Day, whatever day you may be, here's a bunch of recipes for chocolate chip cookies (of course), and other baked goods involving the chips.
I had an insane hankering for chocolate chip cookies the other day, so I decided to bust out my copy of Dorie Greenspan's Baking and make a batch. But something caught my eye: a sidenote about how she prefers to chop chocolate from a block instead of buying premade chips. This called for a chopped vs. chips vs. chunks comparison.
We tested 10 brands of semisweet chocolate chips. They ranged from widely available ones like Toll House and Hershey's to the more hard-to-come-by and pricey Scharffen Berger and Barry Callebaut. Find out which ones are best for baking.
