I am beginning my search for the best chocolate chip cookie in Madison Wi, does anyone have any suggestions of where I should start my search? Thanks!

    What fun! I'd recommend:

    Madison Sourdough: my personal favorite. Lots of good chocolate and butter, with a chewy texture
    http://www.madisonsourdough.com/

    Graze: baked-to-order and served warm with a glass of milk

    King & Mane: more chocolate than cookie, but maybe get it to go and warm it up (unless that's cheating)
    http://www.lombardinos.com/kingnmane.html

    La Concha: more like a sugar cookie studded with mini chips; the rest of the bakery is great, too

    Commenters on our blog also like Michelangelo's (not sure where they get theirs, but I think Fair Trade has the same supplier).

    Those are just the "traditional" chocolate chip cookies. If you're willing to stretch the definition, I'd suggest looking for Cress Springs Bakery at the Dane County Farmers' Market (www.dcfm.org) for an amazing Chocolate Fire cookie (with cayenne and orange).

    Looking forward to hearing about your quest!

      The Graze cookie -- notable for having a small sprinkle of salt on it -- would be my choice.

      In the "stretch" category I'd (sheepishly) recommend the chocolate chip oatmeal cookies at Potbellies...soft, doughy, amazing.
