Everybody loves chocolate chip cookies… well everybody I know anyway. And if you’re into the soft and chewy sort, then these are the perfect cookies for you!
Brian has a family recipe that belongs to his great Aunt Maureen. We’ve used it for years, and they’re great cookies. The thing that I found really different about this recipe is the fact that it’s part butter and part butter flavored crisco. Something about that combination gives them a great flavor. About a year or two ago, I came across a recipe online that’s uses a couple teaspoons of cornstarch to keep the cookies soft and chewy. I love this recipe so much that I’ve probably made them at least ten times. I decided to try and merge the two recipes together to make soft, chewy, and super flavorful cookies. It totally worked!
These are fantastic! If you’re feeling adventurous, add in the optional cinnamon. Brian’s favorite cookies of all time are snickerdoodles. He suggested adding just a touch of cinnamon to give the cookies a hint of that snickerdoodle taste. It actually worked out really well, yet it doesn’t overpower the chocolate “chipness” of the cookies.
Please make these, and let me know what you think! I think they’re the perfect chocolate chip cookies!
