Ghirardelli Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

Ghirardelli Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie

October 10, 2020

Another entry in the Chocolate Chip Cookie Project, this recipe comes from the Ghirardelli Soda Fountain and Chocolate Shop in Disney Springs. This is a pretty standard recipe, very similar, in fact, to the original Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie. But to show that sometimes the classics are the best, this cookie ranked toward the top of the list with my group of testers.

The thing that would give this cookie an edge would be to use Ghirardelli baking chips. In fairness to the project, we used the same non-Ghirardelli brand for all batches. We are going to conduct another mini-challenge and do a side-by-side comparison of standard chocolate chips vs. Ghirardelli chocolate chips. Results to be posted sometime in the future.
