Absolutely the Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I usually use the recipe on the chocolate chip bag, but I had 2 bags of Ghiradelli Semi-Sweet Mini Chips and there was a cupcake recipe on the bag, so I went looking and found this wonderful recipe. I had no butter-flavored Crisco, but I had plain so I doubled the recipe using 1 cup of Crisco and 1 cup of butter, in an attempt to get the butter flavor. I also used the semi-sweet mini chips rather than milk chocolate as that is what I had in the pantry. Luckily, I had Mexican vanilla! Wow, what a hit. I took them to work and several people told me they were the best chocolate chip cookies they had ever had. I had many requests for the recipe. The combo of shortening and butter made them crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and let me tell you, these are outstanding cookies. Thanks so much for the recipe Nicole!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
Let me preface this by saying and I am a terrible cook! About 50% of everything I make turns out awful, even if I follow the recipe exactly. My hubbie asked for beef stroganoff tonight and I found this recipe. I had a small filet, fresh mushrooms and dry sherry rather than chuck roast, canned mushrooms and white wine, but otherwise followed the recipe as written. I cooked the mushrooms with the onions. The filet was so tender, I reduced the cooking time. It was fantastic! Thank you for a great recipe, Donna. It was a big hit at our house and I will make it again soon.

I made these with lemon cake mix and raspberry jam. I planned to frost them with lemon cream cheese frosting. After reading all the reviews, I was eager to try them. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the outcome. The crust was soggy and they just didn't taste good. I did not bother to frost them.
