My new favorite c.c. cookie. This "makes about 4 dozen chewy-crispy bakery-style chocolate chip cookies. They are wonderful!" Crispy the next day. Source: shared by Renee Hartzler

These are the BEST chocolate chip cookies I've ever made! I love to use cream of tartar in my cookies. It gives them a great taste. The previous recipe I used called for oil and butter but this recipe has it beat, by far. I didn't have the fancy vanilla so I just used pure vanilla extract. I also used Hershey's milk chocolate chips. I will NEVER use another recipe for chocolate chip cookies again. I have four teenagers and the entire batch of cookies is almost gone. I made made them about 3 hours ago. :)

These cookies are wonderful. The cream of tartar gives them their crinkly tops and the Neilsen-Massey vanilla their incomparable taste. They stay soft and chewy even the next day. I make these several times a week, a half batch at a time so we always have fresh cookies.
