An accidental cookie...

I decided to try to make the Cook's Illustrated Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe, but my chocolate chips had melted. I decided to just toss in as much of the chocolate as I could, and see how it turned out. 


I've had to pry my husband's hands off the cookie jar.  It's one of my top five greatest cooking mistakes ever.

Your experience was the exact opposite of what Ruth Wakefield tried to to when she accidently invented the chocolate chip cookie seventy years ago!
