let me first say that being 8 months pregnant might have something to do with it, but i've never been a big sweets person, i mean i enjoy them on occassion but i can just as easy pass them up. I am very much a meat and potatoes girl... but in the last couple weeks i've been wanting sweets, mostly chewy fruity candies like orange slices but i just wanted to make cookies.

and omg ladies i don't know about you but i like my chocolate chip cookies soft and chewy rather than crunchy. so i went online in search of a good recipie. now these have to be the worst cookies for you i've ever found but i'd rather make it the good way and have one or two at a time over the course of a few weeks. well... there were alot of recipies out there but something in this one got me.
so i made it and enjoyed using the mixer (a milllion times faster than stiring by hand) and i think it's what lends the airyness to the cookie dough that will help make it chewy.



not the best pic because i used my phone, and i made them way bigger than i should have but thats good cause then i can just have one instead of being tempted to have like 5, which i probebly would if they were smaller.
i can't tell you how good they are, i'll post the recipie if anyone wants it... mmmmm

They are so good and super easy this is the recipie as i got it, it can be modified pretty easy for lower fat but i dunno why you would want to Cheesy

1 c. butter (which is two sticks of butter but you could use one stick and 1/2 crisco or whatever shortening)
3/4 c. white sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. water
2 eggs
3 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
12 oz. chocolate chips  (sometimes i only use half the bag instead of the whole 12 oz bag but its up to you)
nuts (optional - but i don't like nuts in mine)

combine the first 5 ingredients and beat 2 minutes on high (i think they do fine on low to med depending on the strength of your mixer, until you start adding the flour)
add eggs and beat an additional 2 minutes.
add next 3 ingredients and beat 2 more minutes.
fold/stir in chocolate chips.
bake at 350 for 11 minutes.

Note your mixing you don't have to go an exact 2 minutes but you want to mix until you get everything combined and smooth so you don't have butter or flour clumps. the batter is also a very light color and when you look at them at 11 minutes they almost don't look like their done but they are. i had mine on 355 for 12 minutes at that point some were starting brown ontop and at the edge. so 11-12 minutes is your window (mine are a little brown in spots but still soft and chewy so a little browning is no big deal.

enjoy! let me know what you think if you make them Cheesy

Quick edit : I made cookies about 2 times as big as what i would call a normal cookie size and i got about 27 or 28 (there are more than in the pic) so you could probebly easily get 35 or more if you use a smaller spoon to spoon it out than i did lol

Well,  I made them.  They were delicious.  I ate the entire batch in two evenings.  I will be making more soon.  Thanks for the recipe.

I can't wait to try this recipe!

Just FYI, I think I read somewhere about crisco affecting the texture/crunchiness of cookies, nudging them toward the crunchy end of the spectrum.  Maybe the recipe could be used for my whole family--I have one kid who likes  crunchy, and one kid who likes chewy. I could just make two batches, one with crisco, one without! Smiley
yay!

Best wishes in your last month of pregnancy--I hope it's not too hot wherever you are!
