So what makes these cookies so special? Number one, a sprinkling of sea salt on top creates the perfect marriage of sweet and salty. Number two, these babies are large-(about 5 inches when baked)-providing the perfect blend of texture. And the number one thing that makes these cookies stand out from all the other? Patience from the baker…You let the dough rest for at least 36 HOURS! I know, you might think that is way too long to wait for cookies, but trust me on this one, this recipe is totally worth it! :)

The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies

Arguably one of the best chocolate chip cookies recipes around. The extremely popular New York Times chocolate chip cookies, from Jacques Torres.

Yield: 1 1/2 dozen 5-inch cookies

Prep Time: 45 minutes (for 1 6-cookie batch), plus at least 36 hours’ chilling

Ingredients:

2 cups minus 2 tablespoons (8 1/2 ounces) cake flour
1 2/3 cups (8 1/2 ounces) bread flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
2 1/2 sticks (1 1/4 cups) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups (10 ounces) light brown sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons (8 ounces) granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 pounds bittersweet chocolate, at least 60 percent cacao content (either chips or chopped)
Sea salt

Directions:

In a medium bowl, sift together flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt; Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, cream butter and sugars together until very light, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add vanilla and beat until combined. Reduce speed to low and add flour mixture, beat to combine. Fold in chocolate pieces. Wrap tightly in the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 36 hours and up to to 72 hours.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat Baking Mat.
Roll a 3 1/2-ounce piece of dough into ball (the size of generous golf balls) and place on prepared baking sheet. You should be able to fit 6 cookies on each baking sheet. Sprinkle each dough ball lightly with sea salt and bake until golden brown but still soft, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer the baking sheet to a wire rack and let the cookies cool on the sheet for 10 minutes before using a wide spatula to transfer the cookies to the wire rack to cool another 3 to 5 minutes before serving. Serve warm.
