As promised here is the recipe and the result of the America's Test Kitchen chewy chocolate chip cookies take 2. These are really fantastic! How fantastic? I made then and they were gone within 2 days (20 between me and Kevin - Eliot probably ate 1.5).
They are huge at about 4 inches across, chewy and soft on the inside with a light crunch on the outside. So good that I doubled the recipe the next weekend and we fought over who got to bring more to work with them to win favor with our coworkers. I brought mine and they were gone within minutes, seriously I didn't even hear anyone in the kitchen getting them and they were gone!
* A few of my own changes: I used Earth Balance 'butter' because I can't do dairy right now with Willow's intolerance. I didn't have any brown sugar so I used all white sugar and cut it by about 1/4 cup and subbed molasses. I used 1/3 whole wheat pastry flour (love that stuff, tastes like white flour) and no one knew the difference.
