What happened to my puffy cookies?

These cookies were supposed to be puffy mounds of goodness for my goddaughter’s 13th birthday. Instead, they ended up flat as pancakes, but extremely large. So I brought them to work and made Sara something more acceptable looking! I blame these on the heat and humidity. They were well-received at work today. ☺

Note- you don’t have to use cake flour, you can entirely use regular flour of you want. Also preheat your oven to 410 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so it heats up to the right amount.

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup cup butter
  • 1/2 cup crisco
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – cream butter, Crisco, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Fold in chips. Divide dough evenly into 8 mounds. Chill at least a few hours. Preheat oven to 410 degrees for 20 minutes. On a cookie sheer lined with nonstick baking liners, stagger cookies. Bake 14 to 16 minutes (you will see light golden pathches on top) . cool completely. Store in covered container.

The cookie monster did not take a bite of this one, I promise!

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day, one that I hope is filled with joy and love. And remember to be kind. We are all fighting a battle of some sort.
