    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    This is a recipe that has been in my family for years and years. These cookies are cake-like, light, fluffy and moist with zing from using sour milk. If you're looking for a classic chocolate chip cookie recipe, I must enunciate (due to two reviewers' comments) that these cookies ARE NOTHING LIKE A CLASSIC CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE. They are not expected to be crisp or chewy, and the flavor is much lighter. I think this is due to reduced fat content (using 1/2 cup shortening rather than the amount of butter in a classic chocolate chip cookie). I use mini chocolate chips, since regular chocolate chips tend to be too heavy for this cookie batter (but feel free to use your preference). Also, I use homogenized/pasteurized whole milk, but my grandmother always used real sour milk when we lived on the dairy farm. She didn't need to spoil the milk using vinegar. I think the type of milk makes all the diffference. These cookies are great, but they don't quite taste the same as when Grandma made them using more conventional/natural methods.

      Absolutely amazing! Loved the zing added by using soured milk. I probably ate at least 6 cookies-worth of batter before they made it into the oven. I opted to pour the batter onto a rimmed cookie sheet, and cut it into cookie bars when cool (faster and easier than dropping individual cookies). This is permanently on my dessert rotation: so good, so fast, so easy. Thanks for posting!

      I like to try different cookie recipes and have found that sometimes the most unlikely ingredients make the best food. I thought these were the blandest cookies I ever made. Mine came out like a yellow or white cake mix. I even double checked the ingredients and I did exactly what it called for. Very disappointed. Only thing, I am so glad I only made a half recipe and baked just a few to try out. Then I tried to salvage the batter by adding a few other ingredients. Nothing worked. Sorry I really wanted this to work as I had been looking for a chocolate chip cookie that was flaky.
