My latest batch of chewy chocolate chip cookies were just about perfect — yet it wasn't the cookies I couldn't stop sneaking, but rather the dough. I can't get enough of that soft, granular dough, flecked with bits of chocolate crunch from the not-yet-melted chips. What do you think: are chocolate chip cookies better before or after they go into the oven?

I have been on a hunt for the best chocolate chip cookie! I just tried Jacques Torres Secret Chocolate Chip Cookies. I was hoping that they would come out perfect and like the picture showed thick, chocolaty, and chewy. As you can see by my picture and I followed the recipe exactly, the cookies were flat and so sweet. I did like the cookie to chocolate ratio, but the rest of the cookie was a huge disappointment. I was wondering does anyone have a GREAT chocolate chip cookie recipe they would like to share?

The smell of a warm chocolate-chip cookie is enough to drive anyone crazy. The warm, sweet aroma permeates the brain and makes you forget everything else. At least, that's what a recent study for the Journal of Consumer Research has (sort of) concluded.
Research done by Xiuping Li of the National University of Singapore showed than when exposed to a hidden chocolate-chip cookie scented candle, female consumers were more likely to make an unplanned purchase — even those on a tight budget — than those exposed to a hidden unscented candle. In fact, it wasn't just a little more likely, it was a lot more likely. In the chocolate-chip cookie group, 67 percent of those purchased, while only 17 percent of the unscented group purchased.
Unsurprisingly, Li concludes:
If retailers want to push their customers to shop more rather than stay longer, they should not only maintain a pleasant environment but also an environment full of temptations and excitement.
