Wanna know a secret? This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe EVER. Of all time. In the history of the world. Mark my words.
A few months before Tim and I got married I moved into the back house of some dear friend's of ours, the Georges. Kristie, an incredible friend, mother, and cook, pinned this recipe to my dress the morning of my wedding. It was by far best wedding gift we received.
1 cup butter flavored Crisco (comes in packs of 3)
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups flour
1 12 oz pkg of semi-sweet chocolate chips (sometimes I only use 80% of the bag)
Preheat oven to 375°
1. In a large bowl with a wooden spoon (no hand mixers allowed), cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. This can take about 3-4 min to do).
2. Stir in the eggs.
3. Add & mix well the vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
4. Add & mix in the flour.
5. Stir in chocolate chips (I usually use a little less than one bag)
Form large spoonfuls (about the size of a golf ball) onto an ungreased (light, not dark colored) cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 min. They should still look slightly raw when you take them out of the oven. If the tops are kind of brown you know they're done. I always let them finish cooking on the baking sheet for a minute or two before transferring them onto a rack to cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week. But I guarantee they won't last that long. Just ask the Hubs.
