  • Chocolate chip cookies straight up or with nuts

      A very good CCC recipe - I subbed in some milk chocolate chips which made it a tad too sweet, and I would reduce the amount of chips next time. Also, I made these for work so I left out the walnuts - I would prefer with the nuts. I am debating about keeping this book so I wanted to bake a couple of things from it. this was the first recipe.

Publishers Text

Over the past 10 years, Elizabeth Falkner has transformed her bakery from a tiny space in San Francisco's Mission district to the country's ultimate dessert destination. In Demolition Desserts, she presents her favorite creations, from the cookies, brownies, and cupcakes beloved by Citizen Cake regulars to the plated desserts that have made her one of the most dynamic culinary talents of her generation. Beginning with a chapter devoted entirely to chocolate chip cookies, Elizabeth breaks down classic desserts and reconstructs them flavor by flavor, with stunning results. Even her most elaborate desserts have been adapted for the home kitchen, and each recipe is equipped with a detailed make-ahead timeline and a minimalist version for those pressed for time.
