The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies EVER!

February 16, 2018

Okay, I know that this is a huge promise that not too many deliver on but seriously, I’ve been told, and I know, that these are some of the best of the best. This chocolate chip cookie recipe is one that my Grandma has been using for years and I guess I should ask her where she got it from.
These are chewy on the first, second, third, fourth, okay you get it, day. The trick is obviously to keep them in Ziploc bag. If you like a crispy cookie, these can be your thing too. Just cook for 1-2 minutes longer and don’t store it in the bag the first day. They don’t get overly dry, and they are just heaven! Customize the ingredients to your liking.
Combine your Crisco and sugars in a mixing bowl and cream together until it is fluffy. This to me is the all-important step. If this step isn’t right then the cookies will be a little weird. FYI, that is a cookie term. If you like the addition of walnuts or any kind of nut to your cookie, add it. I think that’s what makes this recipe so great. You can add anything to these chocolate chip cookies and they’ll be absolutely delicious.
I line my cookie sheets with my Silpat and scoop out the dough with my ice cream scoop. These don’t spread too far because of the shortening so a lot can fit on a sheet tray. Bake at 350 for 9 minutes, a little longer or shorter if you desire.
When you remove them from the oven, let them cool on the tray for 2 minutes and then transfer them to a cooling rack. You can thank me later!
