Kirbie’s Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Rodzilla on February 12, 2012 · 11 comments

Have I mentioned just how happy I am to be back in San Diego? Yesterday, I had lunch with Jennifer Lee of Kirbie’s Cravings and Erin Jackson of San Diego Sugar, SeriousEats, and about a million other things.


and Japanese Kit Kats too!

I can’t say our meal at Pho Xpress was all that great. Apparently our server was from their sister restaruant Pho-really-fucking-urgent, where they’re trained to get you out of the door as quickly as possible. But enduring our frantic mini-man of a server was worth completely worth it. Not only are Erin and Jen great company..they bring treats!

I would be jealous too

It tasted even better

I’ve been reading about these cookies for about a year now. I only hoped that I would be able to work my way in well enough with Ms. Cravings to someday sample some of the fare. She made it way too easy. I would have paid, stolen, or killed to try these cookies, but all I had to do was show up to lunch.

Thanks again Jen!

If you want to try to make these for yourself (or me), I was told this particular batch was based off of this recipe. Yours might not be quite this good, but if they come anywhere close you’re going to be happy.

Grade: A+

Want cookie.

Currently typing a paper about chocolate chip cookies as well……go figure.

2 Smile

Holy.. words cannot express how amazing that cookie looks. Dat chocolate-melting action.. dayum.

3 Kim Valentine

Those look amazing!

Was the pho decent at least? I’m actually having pho as I type this. lol

4 Kirbie

You made the cookies look so good in your pictures. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

5 Chuck

Whoa those do look good! And did you have some of those crazy flavored Japanese Kit Kats?

6 Adam

Is it just me, or do I get the feeling like eating these would be akin to sticking a chocolate grenade in your mouth and having it blow up? Man those look good.

7 Erin Jax

Kirbie sure doesn’t hold back on the chocolate! I’m guessing my cookie was roughly 80% chocolate, 20% dough.

Dylan – you should Cite if you want your paper to look legitimate.

Smile – You don’t even know.

Kim – I had the grilled pork Banh Mi. I will say that was good, but there are no shortage of Vietnamese places in SD

Kirbie – You just made the cookies that good, but thank you for the compliment..and the cookies :D

Chuck – I did.

Adam – That’s a pretty good description actually.

Erin – and the dough was 19% butter…sooo good.

Hmm…. I need to figure out a way to sample these cookies also

10 James

Wait is that a WASABI kit kat in the picture? Where did you get that? Want to buy….

Duuuuuuuuuuude. I love when you can tell how much explosive chocolate is lurking inside a cookie based on how lumpy the top is.

You also just reminded me that I have four wasabi KitKats in my desk drawer here at work. Commencing diabetes in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1. . .
