My brother in law Matt makes the best chocolate chip cookies…sorry to my Mom and sister…but it’s true, Matt’s chocolate chip cookies are the best. 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.
#6 The 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!)
