Dorie's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Probably my most favorite sweet treat ever, is the focus of today's Tuesdays With Dorie! This week's Tuesdays With Dorie baking challenge is Dorie's My Best Chocolate Chip Cookies, chosen by Kait of Kait's Plate .

I read that a lot of TWDers didn't enjoy them and said they were too thin. I decided to switch it up and add half butter flavored Crisco. I know, I know most of you hate Crisco. But if you want that thicker cookie, that is what it take. Dorie states that they a similar to Toll House, and they are. She reduced the flour a quarter of a cup.
I myself loved them! Of course, there are not many I do not like....as long as they are nice and chewy. So pour yourself a large glass of milk and enjoy maybe one, two or five......
Thanks to Kait for selecting this week's TWD baking challenge. Please check out Kait's blog for the detailed recipe and be sure to take a peek at fellow TWD's to see how their recipe came out!
We give this 5 glasses of milk,
for uttergoodness!

Chocolate Chip cookies are my absolute favorite cookie. A couple cookies and a glass of milk...yum.

I still use the Toll House recipe, but I use half butter and half shortening. It does make for a better cookie. (higher melt temperature) So I am with you on the Crisco.
