TWD My Best Chocolate Chip Cookie

'My Best Chocolate Chip Cookie' said Ms. Greenspan. With a name like that you can bet I will try it. I personally have perfected a chocolate chip cookie, but my cookie is loaded with oats so we really can't compare the two.
I don't make chocolate chip cookies, they tend to go flat, taste greasy and are easy to burn. But I was game, my sweet granddaughter was spending the day, cookie making was high on our priority list. Butter and eggs were out, we had 3 types of chocolate, toasted walnuts and coconut as our 'add ins'. I could tell these were going to be 'the best'. I made a few minor adjustments for altitude, the cookie dough looked (and tasted) delicious, we were ready to bake. First pan was ready to slide into the oven, out of the corner of my eye I saw it. A lone cube of butter. I could easily blame it on my 3 year old helper. How can one forget half of the butter in a recipe?? I take the blame.

What could it hurt I pondered, I'll just call it my 'lower fat' version of Dories Best Chocolate Chip Cookie. Verdict: these cookies were not terrible, they were a soft, cakey, chewy cookie. I thought they might get hard, so as a test I left one out uncovered much to my surprise it stayed soft and chewy. Maybe the coconut helped. It is nice when a 'mistake' gets eaten!
I would like to try this recipe again with all the butter--I'm sure they would be excellent. Our host this week is kait, she will have the correct recipe posted. Check out the TWD blogroll to see how others liked this cookie, they probably made it right!

Cindy your cookies look about the best I've seen! I love your add-ins too.
Since you asked, the altitude of Toronto is about 250ft. above sea level. What city do you live in and how do you adjust your recipes? I'd be interested to see you write about this subject.

Your cookies look perfect! I think your "mistake" turned out to be a winner! Wish mine had turned out half as pretty!

Perhaps you discovered the secret to getting the cookies perfect - because they look so much better than mine!

They look like they baked up really nicely! Coconut sounds like a great addition. My usual chocolate chip cookies have oats and coconut.

Whatever the error, it looks like it resulted in a really good cookie. Those pics are making me want one of these cookies!

Your "mistake" looks mighty tasty to me. I wished for a thick and chewy CCC (which mine definitely wasn't), and yours definitely fit the bill. I'm having cookie envy! :)

Yours are the best looking I have seen. They are NOT thin and crispy so that is already an improvement. Evidently the trick is LESS butter.

Hi Everybody,

i have been looking to figure out a good place to start the Acai Berry free trial and was wondering if someone had some thoughts on whether or not it works for weight loss? So far here is the only [url=http://acaiberries.zoomblog.com/]article[/url] I have been able to check out that seemed real for what my goals are. Opinions?
