The best money I've ever spent on a recipe book was Baking 9-1-1. Sarah's recipe for Sarah's Thick-With-A-Chew chocolate chip cookies uses all butter, and it is exactly what it promises. I also love her brownie recipe.
Baking 9-1-1 book
I know this is an old thread but I am also very frustrated at not being able to make my choc chip cookie recipe anymore and I know the reason. It's because the govt has required all the trans fats be removed from products, specifically, in this case, the crisco. I never had a problem making my cookies until they changed this product. I had a cake business and was no longer able to make icing that would hold up.
