One of the most polarizing debates in history surrounds the best chocolate chip cookie recipe. With all controversial, highly opinionated topics, certain parties, or sides, arise. Some argue the ideal cookie is soft and chewy, while others opt for the crispy and crunchy. However, most dedicated cookie enthusiasts argue the objectively best cookie is a compromise – soft in the middle with a slight crunch on the edges. Baking involves precision. If too much or too little of a simple ingredient is added, the entire cookie changes. The cookie might be “fine,” and still edible, but it is not the “best.” This compromise involves a delicate procedure of harmonizing components.
