I've become quite the recipe website and foodblog junkie. Being a member of Tasty Kitchen does not help matters as it just manages to expose me to more cooking blogs. Recently the writer of the blog LaFuji Mama friended me on Tasty Kitchen and I have come to really enjoy her blog.
LaFuji Mama posted a chocolate chip cookie recipe that was supposed to be better than the recipe on the Toll House food bag. The trick to this new recipe was to essentially follow the same recipe on the bag but half the butter and don't add nuts. LaFuji Mama baked both recipes and said that yes this cookie was better than the original.
At my house we love cookies. If I could I would eat cookies all day. My mother and sister's favorite cookie just happens to be chocolate chip so I decided that I would try this recipe when I made these cookies the other day. However instead of ommiting the nuts I only halved the butter. I made a double batch but only added one bag of chocolate chips and some nuts.
These cookies were delicious. I have to agree with LaFuji Mama and the original poster of this trick to the Toll House recipe Chris Garboski. These cookies were not oily and were chewier than the original. They were a hit in my family. :)
