dories' newest chocolate chip cookies

I’m very happy to make and sample all styles of chocolate chip cookies. Crispy, chewy, thin or chunky, they are all worth eating to me. And if Dorie has a “Newest” Chocolate Chip Cookie, then of course I want to know what it’s got going’ on. These have a little whole wheat flour in the mix, as well as nutmeg and coriander. I often think of coriander working in tandem with cumin in savory recipes…cookies are not the first thing that come to mind…but on it’s own, it’s a spice that’s gentle and fragrant and a little citrusy. The nutmeg and coriander don’t come across as strong in the baked cookies. They’re just a little something different in the background. These cookies manage to be thin and chewy at the same time, with a little crispiness on the outer edge. Best of all worlds, perhaps?

Chilling your cookie dough is good for flavor development and baking up into a nice round shape. Dorie says to chill the dough and then portion it, but I prefer to scoop the dough after it’s made and then chill the dough balls, even if it’s a little sticky. I’ve broken many a cookie scoop spring on cold, hard dough. I think an overnight chill is best, but you can just give it an hour if you need cookies ASAP! Cookie emergencies do happen.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. It’s also here. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!

  1. I share you love affair with all things chocolate chip. I look forward to making these.

  2. Weren’t these the best? ❤

  3. Looks perfect! I’m intrigued about the coriander in the cookies but Dorie has a magic touch with spices. Thanks for the tip on chilling scooped out dough. I’m still learning about baking so it’s very helpful for me.

  4. These chocolate chip cookies look great!

  5. Your suggestion for scooping the cookies is a good one. I often find I have to let dough warm a little in order to scoop it, which sort of negates the benefits. I agree with you – the whole spectrum of chocolate chip cookies is welcome in my cookie jar!

  6. Cookie emergencies! I like that! Looking forward to make this!
    Your cookie looks fabulous!

  7. Beautiful cookies, Steph! And yes, so many cookie spoons/scoops have fallen victim to my attempts to scoop too cold dough..
