All that you need to know about this recipe is that it produces the best chocolate chip cookies known to man.
If you're one of those "Ick! Cakey cookies! I only eat chewy cookies with cacao beans that have been harvested by pink newts! Wah wah!" people, omg, stop. You are undeserving of the recipe.
Everyone else, please proceed. There are delicious cakey cookies to be made.
Have you ever noticed that it's almost impossible to photograph shiny chocolate things without them vaguely resembling crap? Yeah, here's that.
It's fine though because they will eventually dry out from the baking and look like the scrumptious beasts that they are.
As I mentioned above, these cookies are, like, sent by Zeus or something. They are certainly worthy of Titans. Clashing(!) (or at the very least a crappy video of a wind up owl) on their own. However, if you add vanilla ice cream between two of them, you could probably rule the world. You know, if you wanted to.
(baking notes: recipe was quartered, cookies did not last more than 30 minutes)
