The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

I'm on a mission.  I'm on a mission to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Of course, the "perfect chocolate chip cookie" is a matter of opinion for everyone.  For me, the perfect cookie is thick and chewy.  If I can be really picking, it will be slightly crispy on the outside.  I did some research and came across this site.  I thought the science behind the article was pretty interesting, but the recipe they have associated with "thick and chewy" did not, in fact, yield a thick cookie.  It did yield some of the thinnest cookies I have ever seen.  Tasty, for sure, but so thin, some of them dropped through the cracks of the cooling rack.


After rereading that article, perhaps I need to add more flour to bind with the water, which will prevent the cookie from spreading out so much.

In the meantime, I'm on the hunt for a new recipe to try again next weekend.  If any of you have a recipe that fits my description of "perfect", send it my way.  I will try each and every recipe I get.  My kids will never eat dinner again because they will be filled with cookies.  Austin might even gain some weight.
