They ended up a little on the flat side so I'd recomend about 1/4 less flour and for some reason they tasted like shortening, I've used shortening in cookies lots of time but never tasted in and I usualy use 1/2 butter 1/2 shortening recipy so I'm not sure about that, needed to be cooked about 12 min for me... overall thought it was a good cookie, thx!
I was really craving chocolate chip cookies and thought I'd give this recipe a try since I saw that someone made it for Spring PAC 2008. I've tried a number of choc chip cookie recipes, but this one is different, and as far as I can tell, much better than the others. I don't usually bake with shortening, but I had purchased some butter-flavored Crisco for a previous recipe. I halved this, and got 16 cookies. I replaced the butter with Smart Balance with Flaxseed Oil Spread, and the whole egg with egg substitute, and followed the rest of the recipe as directed. My cookies needed the full 10mins, and I let them sit for another 10 mins before removing to a wire rack. I also used parchment paper on my cookie sheet. Crispy and soft. I hope they store well, though I've already gone through 4 of them in one sitting! Thanks for sharing! :)
Very nice biscuits, and I am not the worlds greatest baker! They came together beautifully and gave me a tray of crisp chocolate chip cookies, well-received by the family, who are not used to home-made biscuits! Thanks Jamie Leigh! Made for PAC Spring 2008
