For those of you who are new to Something Swanky (or maybe you’ve just missed these posts), I’m working on a Chocolate Chip Cookie Experiment that basically boils down to me trying as many chocolate chip cookie recipes as I can get my hands on (I’m shooting for 52, 1 recipe per week for a year)! And then, of course, culminating the experiment with an ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe to top all others… at least that’s the idea ;)

Today’s recipe comes from Allrecipes.com. For years before Pinterest and before I started blogging, Allrecipes.com was my go-to for recipes. I always liked that you could check out ratings and reviews from other people who had tried the recipe.

Of course, these days, I typically search Pinterest or a reliable blog for a recipe instead. But I’ll still glance through allrecipes.com from time to time. I think those recipes that have a 4-5 star rating with tons of reviewers are almost always worth taking the time to check out, and I definitely thought it would be worthwhile to include their top-rated Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe in my experiment.

I was pretty pleased to find that this recipe closely resembles my current go-to recipe that I’ve used for years, right down to dissolving the baking soda before mixing. I really, really liked these. I felt like the buttery/salty flavors were perfectly in tune with the rest of the cookie flavors, and the texture was just right too– soft and chewy (maybe even slightly underbaked) in the middle, with a good crunch at the edges.

With a 4.5 star rating out of over 6.5K reviews, I’d say this cookie is well-deserving of it’s rank!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies

These cookies are my 4-year old’s creation, and they represent everything most important to her in the baked goods world: pink, heart sprinkles, and strawberry cake. She’s a die-hard strawberry cake fanatic. In fact, our local deli/bakery has her order memorized (well, at least on the days I’m willing to splurge): a hot dog...

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

One of the perks of having my husband’s family living in the Sacramento area is that we get to visit Ginger Elizabeth every time we’re in town. And for those of you who aren’t familiar with Ginger Elizabeth– it’s a chocolate lover’s dream. Chocolate truffles, macarons, hot chocolate, and sorts of other confections… it’s...

Small Batch Crepes

Small Batch Crepes

I love lots of things about crepes. Obviously, I love that they taste good. And I love that they’re pretty and dainty-looking. I love that you can dress them up or dress them down for a meal or even a quick snack. And that they can go sweet or savory. I really love that...

Baked Chocolate Cake Donuts

These baked chocolate cake donuts are so easy to make and incredibly delicious with absolutely no frying involved.

I have a soft spot in my heart for donuts. I think everybody does, right? They’re like the ultimate comfort any-day-food/special occasion treat/amazing food perfection. My very very favorite donut is a glazed chocolate cake donut. As much as I love a good, yeasty pastry– nothing hits the spot quite like a dense-yet-fluffy cake...
