My brother in law Matt makes the best chocolate chip cookies…sorry to my Mom and my sister…but it’s true. He shared all his secrets with me and said that I could share them with you! So take notes, this is a good one!
#1 The Recipe. He sticks with America’s Favorite Recipe. Because it’s the best and he’s American.
#2 The Key Ingredient. He uses Butter Flavored Crisco instead of butter. This is the key my friends.
#3 The Shape. He molds them uniformly. I love my small ice cream scoop for this one to get the job done fast.
#4 The Smash…this is crucial for even baking. (Loved this tip!)
#5 The Helper. She needs to be smart, sassy and love to eat lots of cookie dough.
#6The Method: Undercook & Cover. About 10-11 minutes then cover them with your notsofavorite okaytogetgreasy designated cookie covering hand towels. Then walk away. Leave them there on the (preferably air bake w/parchment) cookie sheet and let them cool.
#7 Enjoy! …the perfection in a cookie. Mmmmm.
(Thank you Matt!)
