Homebaked chocolate chip cookies

Man, homebaked chocolate chip cookies are the most addictive things EVAR. The butter. It's gotta be the butter. I don't think Toll House uses butter in their cookies. I don't think I've tasted butter in any retail chocolate chip cookie that I've eaten in the last several years.

God bless The Joy Of Cooking pub.1997.

I can't speak for the store-bought Toll House cookies, but the Toll House recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter. Someday I will do a side-by-side comparison...

The Joy of Cooking called for 1 stick of butter, used 1/2 a 6oz package of chocolate chips and claimed to make about 45 cookies. I didn't count the cookies before I started eating them. I don't think I'll ever use the Toll House recipe because that called for a whole 6oz of chocolate chips. I prefer fewer chips and more walnuts.

Bleah - nuts.

But to each his own :) It really does depend on what you like. I like the Toll House dough so much that I'm willing to mess with the add-ins. The dough itself actually bakes up well without chips at all.

Back when I baked, I accidentally made a version of Toll House cookies that people loved. I was out of butter so used margarine, and I mixed everything but the chips in a food processor. They were big and fluffy cookies. I had to keep making them that way because people insisted.

It's funny, but I actually prefer using butter-flavored Crisco in my recipe (the one on the package, of all things). I've been doing it for many years now and get requests every year to bring them. I prefer my chocolate chip cookiees flat and chewie, whereas most folks make them fat and a bit dry. I've always blamed the butter for that, I guess. Just a personal preference.

Oh, I meant to add that I'm not a fan of Toll House, either.
