The Infamous Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love it, I think it is incredible, and I haven’t changed my mind about that. However, as much as it pains me to say it, these chocolate chip cookies by Jacques Torres are absolutely, without a doubt, the best chocolate chip cookies that I have ever made or tasted in my entire life.

Anyway, I had just made an Autumn cake for a dinner party, which was really delicious and again, out of character since it was rare for me to bake and even more rare for me to make something up and have a success.
