The question of which chocolate chip cookie is the best is an ancient one, but you’d think the Internet would have settled it by now. Sadly, the argument seems to be getting worse. In an attempt to batter down the number of contenders, I recently baked and had a group of friends test the four of the best chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. After much deliberation, we were able to come up with a consensus on which cookie took the cake.

 

The Winner! With a total of 15 stars, AllRecipes’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe whisked away the competition. The crunchy corners and chewy inside perfectly complemented each other and propelled this recipe to a sugar-sweet victory!

 

Runner Up: Chefsavvy.com chipped in to claim second place and with 11.5 total stars their Best Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe almost lived up to its name. The compact cookies were rich and buttery, but soft and chocolatey enough to earn themselves 2nd place in this competition.

 

3rd Place: The Best Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe courtesy of PinchofYum.com did not quite rise to the top of the batch. The cookies were soft but crumbly and had an interesting aftertaste.

 

…and Finally: Last but not least, the cookie that did not quite butter up our judges was Alice’s Chocolate Chip Cookie. The recipe called for the cookie to be baked for too long, which resulted in a dry cookies. Although the circumference was crunchy, the inside did not complement its crunchy exterior nearly as well as our winner’s did. Although it did not cut it in this competition, other cookie connoisseurs may have different opinions. Better luck next time Alice!

 

These are the final rankings in this baking battle. Tune in next time for another culinary competition!
