Naturally I noticed the New York Times article on the perfect chocolate chip cookie the other day. So far, it's inspired nearly 200 comments, and a recipe for chocolate chip cookies (by Jacques Torres) is their second most emailed story. I'm not alone in my obsession.
While cookies are my favorite thing to eat, my Sweet Freak coverage and especially photos have admittedly been weak. How nice it was, then, to discover two great blogs as a result of theNYT article: Joy the Baker and Bakers' Banter. Their responses were baking experiments and even a tad of ridicule, but the photos are to die for.
