Where to get Chocolate Chip Cookies

2012 May 2
On my way to work this morning, I stopped at Bread & Sons for one of their pumpkin muffins. I noticed a sign that said "The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie, $1.67" with stacks of large, fresh cookies above it.

I couldn't say no. I didn't want to say no. Frankly, I'm glad I didn't resist.

If there was one recipe that I could take with me to Toronto from an Ottawa bakery, it would be this one. (Or maybe the one for Art-is-in's dynamite loaf, because I suspect that's pretty valuable.)

This cookie is chewy on the inside, but not soft or mushy on the outside, but it doesn't have that crunch that you get from the edge of a cookie. It's softer than that.

The chocolate chips are jumbo chip sized. There's the perfect salty balance in the dough. Also, a hint of candied orange? Maybe, I still haven't figured it out yet, but it tastes like that.

Regardless, this really is the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Finally, some truth in advertising.
