Take a megabite of these chocolate chip cookies.
I know i said last time that i found my go to chocolate chip cookie recipe on my previous post. i lied. i sooo lied. I found this great site http://www.takeamegabite.com/ by a nice young lady named Megan. I asked her for a chocolate chip cookie recipe and she came through. Oh my gosh did she come through. I'm obsessed. I've already eaten 4 and i just took them out of the oven like 2 minutes ago :-/ These are my new favorite. They are the best chocolate chip cookies i have eaten in my life. ever. Go to her recipe and fall in love.
Here is her website and a link to this recipe:
I'd write more but i'm currently covered in chocolate... Here is the recipe, which i have changed a bit to suit my liking.
1/3 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup butter flavored crisco
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 t vanilla
3 cups flour
1 t baking soda
1 t salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup cholate chunks
(i added hazelnuts to 1/2 the batch...holy yum)
1.Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Using a hand mixer cream the butter, crisco and sugars together until fluffy - about 4-5 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix until all combined.
2.In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture, in 3 different batches and beat slowely until your ingredients are combined. As always, DO NOT overmix. Stir in the chocolate chips and chunks and nuts if you are using them. Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes or over night.
3.Place heaping teaspoons of cookie dough a couple inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden and the center is light still, but no longer shiny. Remove cookies from the oven and transfer to a wire rack until cool.
I also froze some batter so that i can bake them anytime i want because when you eat them warm, the chocolate ooooozes out. Omg. These are best cookies EVER. Thank you so much for this recipe megan!! go to her site! http://www.takeamegabyte.com/
