This Levain bakery chocolate chip cookie copycat recipe makes the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever made or eaten. #notexaggerating #thesecookiesareinsane
My friend Cindy shared this Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie Copycat Recipe with me from Modern Honey, and I can honestly say it yielded the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made or eaten. Cindy has enjoyed the Levain cookies on myriad trips to New York City. She thinks this copycat cookies taste just like Levain’s but “without the 30 minute wait” (folks line up around the block to buy these).
These cookies are perfect. Thick. Rich. Dense. Supersized. Modern Honey makes hers HUGE; I made mine X-tra large:-) She fits 4 cookies onto a sheet; my dough balls fit 6 to a sheet.
Make ahead: I’ve had mine in the freezer for a few days, and I grab one when the craving strikes. 25 seconds in the microwave yields a soft, decadent, gooey cookie that tastes “just baked.”
Savvy suggestions: I suggest using the combination of cake flour and plain flour; cake flour makes a more tender crumb. Since you are blending cold butter and flour, a stand mixer makes the job much easier.
Note: The cooking temperature is 410 degrees. I know that sounds odd, but it works:-)
These cookies really are crazy yummy!!If you make them, please leave comments and share your thoughts! As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
