Copycat New York’s Famous Levain Bakery’s Chocolate Chip Cookies
"If you live in New York, you probably have heard of Levain Bakery. It’s a hot spot all over the city. They have a few locations where they sell the most outrageous cookies! If you don’t live in New York and planning a visit, be sure to check out one of their locations. I happen to live on Long Island, way out in Suffolk County. It’s a little over an hour away to Manhattan. Whenever I do go, I am sure to head on over to Levain Bakery for one of their amazing cookies. The last time we were in the city, I knew it would be awhile until the next time. I couldn’t stop thinking about their famous chocolate chip cookies. Being a food blogger, I make up recipes all the time. This one was a real toughie. It took four tries until I got the texture and chewiness I wanted. Happily, the fourth try was the charm. My husband and kids loved them, and so did I. You will see the secret to get the texture. It was an A-ha moment! Just a note, I gave you a few options for the recipe. You can make them the traditional way with regular butter and sugar or lower in sugar (and I promise you, they taste just as delish), or using a vegan margarine instead of butter, go for it. You will LOVE these extra large cookies as much as we do. I just made a batch to send up to my daughter Tori up in college. Like she said, they will be gone in a blink of an eye with five roommates. Whatever option you decide to make, you will love them. Each variation is chewy, gooey and big!"
