THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
This will be the last chocolate chip cookie recipe you’ll ever need! I’ve been making these cookies for over 10 years and can’t find a recipe I like more!
Do you have that recipe that you are always excited to take to a gathering, because you know people will comment on it or ask for the recipe? Well friends, for me, that is this recipe! I almost always get asked what I do different in my cookie recipe that makes it so soft! So, today I’ll be sharing with you my Super Soft Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe!
I got this recipe for Super Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies from a friend of mine and was instantly hooked! The first time I tried them was right after I had my first son and was in the hospital recovering from the unexpected c-section. I may have eaten a giant bag of them all by myself — I just couldn’t stop! They just tasted so good and were so soft!
I think there are two key parts to the success of this recipe. The first is it uses Crisco vs Butter and the 2nd is using a cookie scoop!! If you don’t own a cookie scoop then you need to go fork out the $10 and buy one! It will change your cookie life!
HOW TO MAKE SOFT CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
- Cream together the Butter Crisco, sugar and brown sugar.
- Once combined, add the eggs and vanilla and mix.
- Add the salt, baking soda and ½ the flour and combine.
- Add the additional flour slowly, until combined. I use between 5 ½ – 6 cups flour total. You want the cookies mixture to pull off the sides of the bowl, but not seem at all dry.
- Lastly, add the chocolate chip cookies and mix them in.
- Use a cookie scoop to scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet. I love to use parchment paper on my cookie pans!
HOW SHOULD I STORE THE BAKED COOKIES?
The baked cookies can be stored in an air-tight container for 4-5 days. After that they’ll start to dry out.
You can also freeze the already baked cookies in the freezer for up to 3 months.
CAN YOU FREEZE THE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH?
YES! Absolutely. The dough can be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. After that, make sure and freeze it. It can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months!
I promise you that these Super Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies will be a hit with your loved ones!
