chocolate chip cookie march madness, take two

Here in the heart of college basketball country, we’re all about some March Madness, a good tournament bracket, and some Cinderella upsets, but as you know, I’m also all about a good chocolate chip cookie recipe. So, I’ve been back in the kitchen and am excited to announce that there will be chocolate chip cookie March Madness, take two, coming to you soon! Now, we won’t be going crazy with 64 varieties, but I have about eight different types of dough prepped in my freezer right now, ready to fight for the championship spot.

Spelt chocolate chip cookies are a unique twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie. With a nutty flavor, dark chocolate chunks, and that sweet and salty combination, they are a delicious treat. | www.passthecookies.com

Since the last chocolate chip cookie March madness a few years ago, a few new and Instagram-popular chocolate chip cookies have come out. I added the new recipes to the tournament and I’m excited to see how they stack up! I think it is so interesting to see how small changes in measurements, ratios, and ingredients can make a big difference in how the final cookie looks and tastes. As I write this, I also realize just how much of a baking nerd I am, but I haven’t heard any complaints yet from this experiment ;)

The perfect chocolate chip cookie is absolutely subjective, so I’m roping in some of my friends, family, and coworkers to be the referees in each match up. We’ll be doing the judging over the next couple of weeks, then I’ll report back with the final results and which cookies you shouldn’t miss! Until then, consider this “selection Monday” for chocolate chip cookie March madness and take a look at the cookie recipes we’ll be testing below, or follow along and bake some of them with us. Be sure to tell me what you think in the comments if you do make any of the recipes!
