my new favorite chocolate chip cookies

Until recently, these were my very favorite chocolate chip cookies. I still think they are really good. But you know what? I make these now instead:

The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookies

8.5 ounces of flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon course salt
1 1/4 sticks butter, softened
3/4 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
chocolate chips

Sift the dry ingredients; set aside. Cream the butter and sugars for five minutes, then add the egg and vanilla and mix some more. On low, add dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Fold in the chocolate chips. Chill the dough for a bit. Or not. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Mine are perfect after 11 minutes, but I let them sit on the warm pan for a few minutes more before I place them on a rack to cool.

They are salty and chewy and just about perfect.

(This is the recipe for a half batch, which still makes plenty of cookies.)
