The chocolate chip cookie-it seems like everyone is constantly striving to find the ultimate recipe. I am no exception. I always try different recipes, hoping to find some unbelievable recipe that somehow tops my usual chocolate chip cookie, but it hasn't happened yet. I always go back to my standard, which was a recipe I got from a lady in my home neighborhood. These cookies are truly amazing. They are always sure to please, never to disappoint. I think the secret is all of the mixing that is required. I make mine in my bosch, I haven't tried it yet in my kitchen aide mixer but am anxious to see if the results are the same. If anyone has a chocolate chip cookie recipe that you think could beat mine out, I'd love to hear it! I LOVE my recipe, but am not closed minded and am open to the possibility that some other recipe could be better:) I usually put chopped up symphony bar bits in my cookies instead of chocolate chips, I think that extra touch makes these cookies out of this world!
My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
Note: Like I said above, I have only made this in my bosch mixer, they could turn out a little different if you make them with a hand held mixer or with a kitchen aide, but I'm sure they would still be great:)
Mix for 8 minutes (stopping at 4 min. to scrap down sides)
¾ c. butter
¾ c. butter flavor Crisco
1 ½ c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. sugar
¼ c. milk
2 Tbs. vanilla
Add 2 eggs, one at a time, mixing for 2 min and 30 sec. after each.
Combine dry ingredients in separate bowl:
3 ½ c. flour
2 tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. baking soda
Mix dry ingredients together thoroughly so everything is combined. Add to creamed mixture and don’t mix long-just pulse to blend. If you have a bosch, pulse the medium switch 3-4 times.
Mix in by hand 2 c. chocolate chips.
Baking at 350 7-8 min.
