Best Chocolate Chip Cookie EVER!

Today I had so much fun making Chocolate Chip Cookies with my little assistant! Now these aren't just any Chocolate chip cookies....These are the BEST EVER!
They are Oh So Goooood! I have two secrets to making the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie EVER. The first one is that you gotta have a cute assistant helping you. Here is mine...

My second secret is BUTTER CRISCO!

I find that when you use BUTTER Crisco you get the perfect texture. When cookies are made with all butter they can sometimes turn out flat and too crispy. When cookies are made with all shortening the cookies can be very cake-like. So the trick is the combo of both butter and shortening (Butter Crisco). Here is my recipe for the best Chocolate Chip Cookie EVER!
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter Crisco
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12-oz. pkg.)  MILK CHOCOLATE Morsels
  •  3 tsp water
  1. Cream the Crisco, sugars and water together
  2. add the eggs
  3. add vanilla
  4. add dry ingredients
  5. add MILK chocolate chips
  6. bake at 350 degrees and take them out right before they look golden (they will finish baking in the pan and I always like a soft cookie)
Well now that the cats out of the bag and my secret is revealed...I'm going to bed now ha! Oh and BTW... I'm almost at 100 followers!!!!!! "You like really like me"! Love yall ;)


  1. These. Look. Delicious. I want one.

  2. Oh YUM!!!! I never have used butter crisco! Can't wait to try it!

  3. thank you for the recipe I am making those tonight they look soo good!!!

  4. Ashley???? Is this really YOU???? Did someone hack your blog? I can NOT believe you just gave out this recipe!!!!!!!!! SO out of character!! ;) When I saw your title, I thought you were going to write about one you had eaten elsewhere and I thought, "No way...Ashley's originals are the best chocolate chip cookie EVER!!" You'll have to tell me later what secret ingredient you left out ;) HA!

  5. This is a very dangerous post for a preggo to read! I'm not gonna be able to stop thinking cookies now! ha! They look delish! Tks for the recipe, I will have to try it out!

  6. You sure do have a cute assistant! Those cookies look delicious!!!

  7. Chocolate chip cookies are my weakness!!

  8. Chocolate chip cookies and milk are one of my faves... esp. in the evening! Yours look and sound delish! Your assistant is pretty precious too! :)

  9. If you could just come up with a gluten-free version of this recipe that tastes JUST as yummy (not possible, I'm afraid), my life would be complete! Sounds (and looks) sooooo good, though!!

  10. Yum!! I'm going to try these ASAP! I have wondered how the butter crisco tasted! When I make snickerdoodles, I do half butter, half crisco... so that's probably a similar but better idea!

    Congrats on your followers!!

  11. I CANNOT cook but I am going to try these! Your food always looks so yummy!

  12. Can't wait to try your cookie recipe. I just made homemade granola last night that I got from a fellow blogger.

    BTW...I just bought my daughter the strawberry dress from Gymboree that sweet Hannah is wearing. LOVE IT!!

  13. I forgot to ask...did you make the bow Hannah is wearing in the cookie photos???

  14. I"ve never added shortening to cookies, but I want to try it! Thanks for the tip and I love your assistant's outfit!
