That search for the ultimate cookie recipe? I guess I have been at it even longer than I thought. Just recently, while browsing through a shelf of my lesser-used cookbooks, thinking it was time to prune the collection, I came across a thin volume titled The Complete Chocolate Chip Cookie Book. Inside was an inscription from my sister and a date – December 30, 1982 – for my wedding shower! It would appear to have all the advice I need. Chapter headings include Tools, Ingredients, Worries, People and An Everyday How-To. Oh, and it even has a definition, complete with illustration: “The perfect chocolate chip cookie is not so crispy as to be dry, nor so gooey as to be wet.” Hmmm, close enough to my own personal view. Clearly, this deserves a reread, and perhaps a promotion to my “current” cookbook shelf. It’s worth a try… And best of all, my find triggered warm memories, almost as delectable as a chewy chocolate chip cookie!
