butter flavored shortening
packed brown sugar
sifted all-purpose flour
semisweet chocolate chips
I'm known in my family for being "adventerous" when it comes to food, and luckily this time I was. This proved to be a great recipe despite all the reviews and my children got hooked on it! I glazed the cookies with vanilla glaze (normally meant for bundt cakes) and did use 2 cups of flour as other reviwers suggested. The amount of shortening and butter was fine, considering I used a light subsitute, but I don't really think that made a difference, because the batch I made for the kids used classic butter and they loved it! Also instead of chopped walnuts, I used ground walnuts, no one in my family being big on nuts! If these cookies didn't work the first time, I would consider trying them again with the recommended changes, and I can assure you, your whle family will be begging for more!
Thanks, Stacy Mae
My husband loves chocolate chip cookies, and this recipe has potential if you cut out the butter flavored shortening, used 1 1/2 cups of flour, add 1/4 tsp. of cream of tartar and bake these at 350 for 10 minutes vs. 375 - you'll have a much better experience.....
This cookie recipe had way too little flour for the amount of shortening and butter. My first batch was very greasy and dark brown. I added more flour and the rest of my cookies were really good.
These aren't cookies! They're chips! They're literally chips, like potato chips! You could add a cup more flour to the recipe if you want cookies instead of chips.
I've been making choc chip cookies for many years. My recipe is almost exactly like this one but I only use 1/2 cup shortening in mine. Just omit the butter and then they will be perfect :)
more flour needed! I used 2 cups and they turned out great!
Needs more flour! The cookies just melted all over the pan... there was nothing to hold it together!
I agree, needs more flour. First batch was a big blob that ended up in the garbage. I added 1 more cup of flour and it was fine. I should have read the review prior to attempting.
