This all goes back to a month ago when I made the cookie recipe on the back of the chocolate chip bag in hopes of taking them to some of my neighbors. Unfortunately they turned out terrible looking. They were overly greasy and ended up as flat as the cookie sheet. The chocolate chips looked like they were sprinkled on as an after thought. They were fine for us to eat but there was no way I was giving them to anybody else. I decided that I was going to find a better recipe. For some reason I decided that this was the week to do it. I did some searching on a cooking forum and gathered some recipes to try based on the good reviews they were given.
Recipe #1: Is the Cooks Illustrated recipe for Chewy and Crisp Cookies. Here is a link to the recipe.
