Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies – NO CRISCO

I think I found the BEST chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I found it a few weeks ago when my mom was in town watching the girls so Brian and I could go to a Redskins game (hush it, they actually won this one AND R.G. III ran an 80 yard touchdown).  Anyways, Ella was begging to make cookies with my mom so I quickly found this recipe on food dot com.  I searched through several highly rated reviews and they mostly used crisco.  NO THANKS!  That stuff looks like straight up lard to me and I can’t imagine putting that in my mouth.  So, I found this OVERLY delicious recipe!  They are so moist and chewy.  I promise you won’t regret it if you make these.  Ella and I actually made them again!

1 large egg yolk, from a large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (semi-sweet, milk chocolate or any combination, 300 gms)

2.  Cover 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper Mix flour, baking powder & salt in a bowl or bag and set aside.
3.  Mix butter and sugars with with a mixer until blended and smooth, add egg, yolk & vanilla.
4.  Mix until incorporated.
5.  Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined.
6.  Stir in chips and optional nuts.
7.  Divide into 18 equal balls, a 2″ cookie scoop works just about perfectly, about 60 gms each.
8.  EVENLY space 9 on each cookie sheet.
9.  Bake for 12-18 minutes, rotating front to back and top to bottom after 8 minutes.

**You want these to be chewy so make sure you don’t overcook!  They should just be golden around the edges.

Add this to your holiday cookies!  Happy baking!!!
