No question refrigerating the dough is effective. However, the times you quote must be for very large quantities of dough. I get excellent results by refrigerating a single batch (about 6 dozen cookies) for an hour or two.

Yup. Probably are. I was citing the NYT article. I'm sure they're refering to a 100 dozen batch at least, if not more. The point , and you and I agree, is to refrigerate the dough to let the butter and the levening agent blend together to give more lift and less "run".
