Hello, world! I'm Jesse, and I love to bake especially chocolate chip cookies. They're simple and delicious, and their flavor takes me right back to my childhood.

Chocolate chip cookies were also one of the first things my mother taught me to bake before going to culinary school, and to this day, I still use her recipe.


Still, I know that pretty much everyone has a recipe they swear by.


So I decided to test five of the most popular. A chocolate chip cookie showdown , if you will:

This was my lineup:

1. Alton Brown: Because he's all about technique — and a good chocolate chip cookie comes down to one thing: proper technique.

2. Thomas Keller: Because he's arguably the most acclaimed chef in America. If HE can't make a perfect chocolate chip cookie, who can?

3. Bobby Flay: Because he seems to be good at beating other people's recipes, so I figured his recipe should be unbeatable. Right?

4. Kourtney Kardashian: Because I wanted to include someone who wasn't a professional chef to spice things up a wild card! . She even has her own food blog where she shares her kreations .

5. Toll House: Because I wanted to set a "control" cookie. Toll House is the OG chocolate chip cookie — and the standard to which I would judge the others.
