What cookie would you have taken to the SE exchange?
A while back, I began searching for *that* chocolate chip cookie. You know the one. Chewy, gold kissed edges and studded with chocolate chips. I tried quite a few "classic" recipes, my mom's, my mother in law's, SK, CI, Niemann Marcus, and 4 or 5 from SE. The winner for me was a SE cookie from a swap, found here: http://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2010/12/thick-and-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies-recipe.html
I have tweaked it a little more and experimented with several permutations. My favorite so far is the straight up chocolate chip cookie with maldon sea salt. The second is the one I probably would take: oatmeal with white chocolate chips, cherries and pistachios.
What about you?
