There are perhaps no better chocolate chip cookies you can get delivered than Levain cookies. We challenged Samantha Seneviratne to make her own Levain style cookies faster than it takes for delivery to arrive. Was Samantha up to the challenge?

For those wanting to make these cookies in 30 mins - DON’T. You can’t skip the chilling step. Chilling for two hours prior to baking helps the cookie stay round, instead of spreading in the oven, and keeps the cookie interior under-baked :)

The best of the new people on this channel. Question for anyone --- are all the new people going to be back in the test kitchen whenever covid is over ? The interaction needs to come back in these videos and not just through zoom.

My favorite way to get quick homemade cookies is to make a batch of cookie dough and form two logs with it. Wrap it in saran wrap and toss it in the freezer. Whenever you want cookies, slice 3/4" discs off of the log, toss in oven at 425 for 12 minutes or so. Take em out, let em cool for 2-3 minutes and enjoy them with a bowl of ice cream. Couldn't be easier!

cookie flour means less protein %, yes. But means also it doesn't manage to absorb much fluid. For example, for bread and pizza, you want strong flour (more proteins) in order to absorb more. On the contrary, wholemeal flour has a lot of proteins and can absorb a lot of water but doesn't develop gluten, so its dough it's not so extensible.

@Marie Anne Here you go! Enjoy!!! 1 cup cold butter cut into small cubes 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 1 t vanilla 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cup cake flour (**I always just use 3 cups total of regular flour) 1 t cornstarch 3/4 t baking soda 3/4 t salt 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I like mini the best) 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts (optional) Preheat oven to 410F Cream together cold cubed butter, brown sugar, and sugar until creamy (~2 min). Add eggs, one at a time, and vanilla. Stir in flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt until just combined. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. You can make huge, Levain-size cookies OR you can make smaller, regular cookies. Bake for 9-12 minutes or until golden brown (baking time will vary depending on size you choose...regular size cookies bake for 10 minutes in my oven). I often will half the recipe to get 8-9 regular sized cookies. :)
