It was like I couldn't add enough flour to get these things to come out like a COOKIE instead of a taco shell!
That's why I spent 6 months experimenting and coming up with my own recipe that I was willing to put my name on. Seriously, I refused to take orders for choc chip cookies until I worked this out. Whatever they did to the good old 'regular' toll house recipe ruined a classic recipe and it just SUX now.
The happy ending to this story is I came up with an AWESOME choc chip cookie, if I do say so myself!
I also agree that the butter-flavored-crisco is nasty. I used it once in cookies, and well ...... lets just say I used it ONCE. About 6 months later, I finally threw out the almost-full can of it. I won't even fry eggs in this crap.
