I tried for years (honestly) to make the perfect chocolate
chip cookie. I tried lots of different recipes, and they always came out too
crispy and flat. I could never get the consistency of the butter or margarine
right; it was either way too soft or too hard.
Then, I found this one on the back of a package of
margarine, and Voila! Perfect chocolate chip cookies. The secret? The
margarine/butter is melted. Now, I get compliments on my chocolate chip cookies
every time I make and share them.
For a variation on my cookies, I tried a cookie pie the last
time I baked them after seeing this idea on Pinterest. It’s ridiculously easy:
Just make your favorite cookie recipe, press the batter into a pie plate, and
Just thinking about these cookies makes me want to bake.
2 1/2c flour
1t baking soda
3/4c butter or margarine, melted and cooled
1 1/2c brown sugar
1c semi-sweet chocolate chips (I often use white and chocolate chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a pie pan.
Combine flour and baking soda and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the margarine and brown sugar. Mix
well. Stir in egg and vanilla until well blended. Add the flour ingredients and
stir until just combined. Fold in the chocolate chips.
Press into the prepared pan and bake 25-30 minutes or until
a knife or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Slice into wedges
To make cookies: Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie
sheets and bake 9-11 minutes.
