Paris-based pastry chef David Lebovitz wanted to call his new cookbook David's Greatest Hits. His publisher quickly nixed the idea, but that title would have been an apt one: In Lebovitz's just-released recipe compilation, Ready for Dessert: My Best Recipes, he shares more than 170 recipes--including new creations and old favorites--like these unparalleled chocolate chip cookies. The chunky-chewy treats come out of the oven pebbled with chopped nuts and oozing chocolate. Your hunt for the perfect chocolate chip cookie is officially over.
