I enjoy eating cookies, and also baking them. I have really liked Daphne Oz's recipe and would like to use this page to track my attempts to improve, as well as providing myself a canonical cookie source.
First of all, some attribution. I discovered this recipe from Daphne Oz: My (current) Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
She also references meaningful inspiration that I will also pay homage to:
Mrs. Oz's first direction is to preheat the oven, which makes zero sense given that the dough needs to refrigerate for hours.
