Norman Love’s Chocolate Chunk Cookies
In a recent interview, pastry chef and master chocolatier Normal Love told The Daily Meal, “I most enjoy making chocolate chunk chocolate chip cookies. They’re what our customers and my family and friends request most, and it’s always gratifying to bake something that’s so well received. But, they’re also fun because each time you make them, you can experiment a little — add more chocolate, more chips, throw in some walnuts.”
