My sister-in-law’s friend gave me this recipe and it is the best one yet…IF you’re going for the variety of cookies with no oatmeal.
(I’m a little biased toward oatmeal but man alive, these are tasty.)
And let’s just put in a side-note that I KNOW Crisco is not a good thing health-wise, but hey, every once in a while for big events it’s good to have a big, good, fool-proof chocolate chip cookie go-to recipe :)
Especially if that big event is that the neighborhood is at your house and you need a good little treat for them. These things go like hotcakes cause they are so darn good.
2 c. butter flavored Crisco
1 c. butter
2 3/4 c sugar
2 3/4 c. dark brown sugar
1 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
Mix well and add 8 cups flour, then 3 cups chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Makes a ton. (I add 1 Tbsp. flour)
Optional: Can divide dough in 1/2 and add different kinds of chips and nuts. Example: 1 1/2 c. vanilla (Hershey's) chips and 1 cup chopped macadamia nuts.
