For the past few years I have just stuck with the same two recipes for chocolate chip cookies. Either the Nestle Toll House one on the bag, or the Neiman Marcus recipe (if I have to make a LOT of cookies).
I picked this one because I thought the combo of shortening and oil was a little different, since I only use real butter for cookies normally. They turned out really nice I think. They don’t spread out, they stay chunky and have a shortbread consistency. The kids and Paul gave two thumbs up. The only problem now is that I ate so much cookie dough, I need someone to figure out how many WW points it was, and I have a feeling I am done eating for the next 8 days!
Does anyone have any favorite Chocolate Chip cookies recipes you can post to share that I can try???
