Cookie success!

It couldn’t get any simpler or easier than a chocolate chip cookie. We’re starting slow remember? So I found a pin with some tips and hints for making the perfect chocolate chip cookie. I pulled the recipe from the post and we started our recreation. We modified it slightly, using butter-Cristco instead of butter and double-strength vanilla extract instead of regular extract, eyeing the chocolate chips, and adding a tad more baking soda than the recipe called for.

Keely and Abha’s Delicious Chocolate Chip Cookies:

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp. salt

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

1 cup butter-flavored Cristco

2 large eggs

1 tsp (double strength) vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups (ish) chocolate chips

1 cup (ish) chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine and stir flour, salt and baking soda in small bowl and set aside. In mixing bowl, combine Cristco, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth. (This is awesome when you have a Kitchen-aid mixer as my parents do!) Scramble the eggs in a separate bowl. Add the eggs to the sugar and butter mixture one at a time. Slowly add the flour mixture and make sure to mix it well! Add the chocolate chips (and pecans if you want).

I read somewhere that putting the cookie dough in the fridge right before it goes in the oven will make your cookies fluffier, so I tried it and it works. Although I’m not sure that’s exactly why they were so fluffy, but I’ll do it again next time I make these cookies!

Put small spoonfuls of cookie dough on a cookie sheet about 2-3 inches apart and bake for 7-10 minutes depending on how done/underdone you prefer your cookies!
