This week, we were invited to a Christmas caroling party so I decided to try it out. They're amazing. Slightly soft and chewy, but not too soft or too chewy.

Oh, and you've probably heard the urban legend. Here's all Neiman Marcus has to say on the matter:
An urban myth is a modern folk tale, its origins unknown, its believability enhanced simply by the frequency with which it is repeated. Our signature chocolate chip cookie is the subject of one such myth. If you haven't heard the story, we won't perpetuate it here. If you have, the recipe below should serve to refute it. Copy it, print it out, pass it along to friends and family. It's a terrific recipe. And it's absolutely free.
If you want the story of the myth, go here. (Interestingly, I first heard it in the context of Fannie May fudge).
