Chocolate Chip Cookies by Bobby Flay

I warned you.

Yes, more chocolate chip cookies. This time brought to you courtesy of Bobby Flay.

Look at him

So cute and boyish. With his freckles and red hair.
I'm not sure what it is about him. I'm generally not attracted to pasty dudes, but there is something so all-american about him. Whenever I see him on television, I watch him. And the other day I caught the tail end of his show Throwdown (it's a show where he challenges cooks/bakers/chefs in a little contest) and this episode was Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Now, by this point, everyone is well aware of my recent chocolate chip cookie obsession. What is it???? I have no idea. But, it's like I can't get enough of chocolate chip cookies. I dream about them, I obsess over them, I seek out new recipes. So, when I saw this episode, I knew it was only a matter of time that I'd be making chocolate chip cookies again.

Little did I know it would be like 2 days later.

Anyway, the thing that struck me the most from the episode was everyone said that Bobby's were very buttery. This caught my attention. I loves me some butter.

These cookies were very buttery! And delicious! But, as I've noticed with all chocolate chip cookies, they could use a little chill time in the fridge before they go into the oven. I'll try that next time and hopefully they won't spread so much. Even with the spreading though, they still tasted chewy and oh so buttery. Yum. Incidentally, his cookies didn't win the throwdown, but the other cookies looked too cakey for me. I have some copycat recipes for the cookies that won, that I will eventually try and then I can do my own little throwdown experiment.

I've been wanting to try the winner's (Levain's) cookies as well. And I'm with you - while I usually love me a tall, dark, and handsome man, I definitely have a TV crush on that Bobby Flay :)

Oooh, Mr. Bobby Flay is a cutie, huh! I'm not in to red heads, but there is that something about him...
I was watching that same show with my Husband (shocker!) and was sad they didn't post their recipe too. I wasn't going to make his recipe, because it was so flat, lol.

Ok, you know I'm not a baker...but how do you know that the cookies should go into the fridge before the oven?

I was at Levain Bakery today and the line was out the door. The cookie was worth the wait! To me it looked bigger on TV, however. I tried the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Chip and it was out of this world. I also had a bite of the Chocolate Chip with Walnuts fresh out of the oven and the choc chips were melty and delicious. Both cookies were more like eating a slightly crispy brownie than a traditional choc chip cookie. But I can highly recommend that you try this place if you are in NYC!
