Here's my favorite - they are soft and delicious! I can't remember where it came from but I have tried lots of recipes and this one is my favorite. I use it every time now.

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup shortening
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups all-purpose flour

DIRECTIONS:
. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine soften butter with shortening, sugar and brown sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 min. Note: I take them out of the oven before they start to turn dark! Do not double this recipe, or they don't bake soft. Can make this recipe for bars too. Spread dough into greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake them at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15-20 minutes.

This is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe. I like crunchy cookies not a fan of soft cookies ( would rather eat cake soft and moist) I like to make them really big, They make the best ice cream sandwiches. OK wish I hadn't seen your post cause now I gonna have to bake some cookies, mouth watering just thinking about them!

I use the Toll House recipe too and they are delicious. I always take them out right when they start to brown and they are the perfect amount of doneness (I know - not rally a word) I bake them on the silpat ALWAYS and I don't know if that makes a difference or not but people LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

I have hunted high and low for the best CC cookies and I have found them! These cookies are known far and wide with friends and family members! The only thing that I change is I use dark brown sugar rather than light.
I have used both butter and margarine and I think that actually the margarine tastes better. The bigger the better...

HoosierMomOf5 Posted 4 Aug 2007 , 3:43pm

I don't remember where I found this recipe but it it THE BEST! It makes a ton of cookies. I think the pudding is what makes these so darn good! icon_biggrin.gif

4 1/2 c flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 c butter, softened
1 1/2 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c granulated sugar
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
4 c sem-sweet chocolate chips

Sift together the flour and soda; set aside. Cream together the butter and the sugars. Beat in the pudding mix until blended in....then add the eggs and vanilla. Blend in the flour mixture then stir in the chocolate chips. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

allie73 Posted 4 Aug 2007 , 3:43pm

The best recipe I have found is the one on the back of the Ghirardelli semi-sweet choc. chip bag. Whenever I make them, everyone raves. They are buttery, full of chips and make a really big batch that stays soft for days.

chocolateandpeanutbutter Posted 4 Aug 2007 , 4:21pm

Here's mine. This is a recipe I've been making since high school (say, late 70's) and I've yet to find one I like better:

1 cup butter
2/3 cup white sugar
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup (or more) chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla. Stir in flour, salt, and soda. Stir in chips. Bake at 375F for 8-10 min or until golden brown.

Don't burn your mouth on the first one - you won't want to wait till they cool.

mamatina Posted 4 Aug 2007 , 5:39pm

OMG!!!! icon_surprised.gif thanks for the big response everyone! I think i will have to try them all. my family is happy to be my tasters icon_smile.gif i will post back with the one we like best. ok i am hungry now, starting right now~!!!!!!!!!!!

southaustingirl Posted 5 Aug 2007 , 2:11am

I use the same recipe as HoosierMom. It's really good.....and I can't remember where I found it either.

CookieChef Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 3:29am

I use Nestle Toll House except with extra vanilla, pecans and milk chocolate chips.

iramirez94 Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 3:39am

I use the tollhouse receipe. I line my cookie sheets with parchment paper. I use a cookie scooper to drop them and bake them for 10 minutes. (I also use butter flavored crisco)

zenu Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 3:40am

I love the one from the Ghiradelli chips. It's so delicious!

moptop Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 3:59am

My son makes choco chip cookies using the recipe in the BC cookbook (cookbook is approx 15 years old) that are absolutely divine! In fact, they're so good I don't even bother making any anymore - just let him do all the work and enjoy the results. (perhaps that's part of why they taste so darn good *smile*)

mamatina Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 3:55pm

So I tried the cookies from Jessmar. OMG! thumbs_up.gif I used a big cookies scoop and they are just like the ones we get at the deli. Family loved them too. I did buy ghiradelli chip bags and I bought some pudding so I will be trying those next too. We decided we were goingn to have a little fun and have a cookie contest and then I place them out and they get to rate each of the cookies that I make and then the one with the highest votes, will be the "cookie champion". Can't wait. and again thanks for all the advice!!! icon_biggrin.gif

you havent lived until you have had these cookies.... these are my favorite too.... BY FAR! icon_smile.gif

iramirez94 Posted 8 Aug 2007 , 9:56pm

I added pudding to my cookie receipe a while back and they didn't like them, but after looking at the receipe i can see some differences. I am going to try hoosiermom's receipe. I will let you know how they like them.

Can you post this recipe? I can't get it because I'm not a member. TIA

mamatina Posted 10 Aug 2007 , 12:07am

I couldn't get to the americas test kitchen either? I would love to have you post it as well!!!!!

Thanks

smbegg Posted 10 Aug 2007 , 10:08pm

This recipe is from America's test kitchen. I do the whole roll the ball, break in half, twist and put back together thing. These cookies have height and are really yummy! Also, I would never place cookies into a container with out a piece of bread in it to keep them moist.

Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/1996

These truly chewy chocolate chip cookies are delicious served warm from the oven or cooled. To ensure a chewy texture, leave the cookies on the cookie sheet to cool. You can substitute white, milk chocolate, or peanut butter chips for the semi- or bittersweet chips called for in the recipe. In addition to chips, you can flavor the dough with one cup of nuts, raisins, or shredded coconut.

Makes 1 1/2 dozen 3-inch cookies
2 1/8  cups bleached all-purpose flour (2 cups plus 2 tablespoons)
1/2  teaspoon table salt
1/2  teaspoon baking soda
12  tablespoons unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), melted aand cooled slightly
1  cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1/2  cup granulated sugar
1  large egg
1  large egg yolk
2  teaspoons vanilla extract
1 - 2  cups chocolate chips or chunks (semi or bittersweet)


1. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Adjust oven racks to upper- and lower-middle positions. Mix flour, salt, and baking soda together in medium bowl; set aside.

2. Either by hand or with electric mixer, mix butter and sugars until thoroughly blended. Mix in egg, yolk, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients; mix until just combined. Stir in chips.

3. Form scant 1/4 cup dough into ball. Holding dough ball using fingertips of both hands, pull into two equal halves. Rotate halves ninety degrees and, with jagged surfaces exposed, join halves together at their base, again forming a single cookie, being careful not to smooth doughs uneven surface. Place formed dough onto one of two parchment paper-lined 20-by-14-inch lipless cookie sheets, about nine dough balls per sheet. Smaller cookie sheets can be used, but fewer cookies can be baked at one time and baking time may need to be adjusted. (Dough can be refrigerated up to 2 days or frozen up to 1 monthshaped or not.)

4. Bake, reversing cookie sheets positions halfway through baking, until cookies are light golden brown and outer edges start to harden yet centers are still soft and puffy, 15 to 18 minutes (start checking at 13 minutes). (Frozen dough requires an extra 1 to 2 minutes baking time.) Cool cookies on cookie sheets. Serve or store in airtight container.

Mmmmmm! boy am I hungry for cookies. Thanks for all the great recipes. I need to get baking icon_biggrin.gif
