    I use the Tollhouse recipe. The secret is to take them out of the oven while they still look moist on top (about two minutes earlier) and let them continue to bake for the final two minutes out of the oven.

    1 cup butter flavored shortening

    3/4 cup white sugar

    3/4 cup brown sugar

    2 eggs

    2 teaspoons vanilla extract

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1 teaspoon salt

    2 cups milk chocolate chips

    1 cup nuts, if desired


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets. In a large bowl, cream together the butter flavored shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

    Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

    2 eggs

    1 tablespoon vanilla extract

    2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

    1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


    Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Sift together the all-purpose flour, cake flour, baking powder and baking soda; set aside.

    In a large bowl, cream together the butter, white sugar and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs and vanilla, until well blended. Gradually stir in the flour mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon, stir in walnuts if desired. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

    Chewy Chocolate-Chip Cookies:

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

    1 teaspoon baking soda

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    3/4 cup packed brown sugar

    2 tablespoons light butter

    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups, and level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat brown sugar, butter, and vanilla extract at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 5 minutes).

    Beat egg whites until foamy using clean, dry beaters. Gradually add granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; beat until soft peaks form. Add corn syrup; beat until stiff peaks form. Fold brown sugar mixture into egg white mixture. Add flour mixture; stir in chocolate chips.

    Drop by level tablespoons 1 inch apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven, and let stand 5 minutes. Remove cookies from pans, and cool on wire racks. Store loosely covered.

    When I make mine I slightly underbake them...only by a couple of minutes. They should stay soft if stored in a ziplock.

    Just don't bake them as long, and be sure to add more eggs (one more per six made).
