If you are a big fan of cookies you've probably heard of Levain Bakery, and their signature cookies. Levain Bakery is rumored to have the best chocolate chip cookies in the world. Yes, in the world! Although we consider this is a highly debatable subject, we decided to recreate the famous Levain Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.
This massive 170 g (6 oz) cookie is a perfect combination of crisp outside and incredibly gooey center. The cookie is baked at a high temperature, and mounded high, allowing the outside to crisp up perfectly while the middle barely gets baked, creating delicious puddles of chocolate in the cookie dough.
