Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love chocolate chip cookies, as I mentioned here and I also adore the recipe mentioned here  from City Bakery here in New York.  Only in my wildest dreams would I think that I would be able to recreate this unbelievably delicious recipe that is so chewy and buttery -  it really is not funny.  When you break apart their cookie, the chocolate chips melt almost as if they were just pulled out of the oven.  
One day I decided that I would try to duplicate their recipe. I scoured many blogs, just to find out that many others are also in search of the same thing.  I used this recipe and was anything but disappointed.  Upon my investigative work, the difference between this version is that you work with cold butter, not it's room temperature counter-part found in a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe.  This recipe also calls for bittersweet chocolate chips, which provides an even richer flavor. Eaten warm with a glass of milk created one of those moments meant to be savored. Do you have any favorite chocolate chip recipes that must be shared?
