Five or six weeks ago, I posted a status on my Facebook Fan Page saying that, when I reached 1,100 Likes, I would share my favorite cookie recipe. Mostly, I was joking but also, chocolate chip cookies are serious business at the Chandler home. Plus! You guys! It’s less than two months later and my Facebook Page is past 1,400 Likes. So, really, what kind of person would I be if I didn’t share the best cookie recipe of all time? Definitely a person other than myself.
Here is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (which is super heavily influenced by Crisco’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe– I was raised on that recipe)! Thanks so much to everyone who has liked my page!
3/4 Cups Butter Flavor Crisco (or Butter)
1 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Milk
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
A Little Less Than 1/4 Cup Applesauce
2 Cups Gluten Free Flour (Regular Flour Works, Too!)
1 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Teaspoon Baking Soda
A Whole Bag of Chocolate Chips
Bake for 8 minutes at 375 Degrees (after tasting the dough, of course).
Annnnd there should be a photograph of the finished product here but, I’ll be honest, we ate them too fast. Like I said: cookies are serious business to the Chandlers.
