Aunt Angie’s Chocolate Chip Cookies — 3 Comments

  1. Hooray for your experiments–I’m sure even those batches that weren’t as great as Aunt Angie’s were enjoyed nevertheless. 🙂

    I have experimented a little bit with chocolate chip cookies, and my recipe is close, but slight variations. I think chocolate chip cookies are trickier than one would think, and it’s probably those slight differences that produce different results.

    Your aunt’s mixture of margarine and butter is possibly what gave her the thicker cookie. I use 1 1/2 sticks butter and 1/4 vegetable oil (which probably approximates margarine), and that keeps my cookies from spreading out super thin like they do when I use all butter.

    Yours look so good. Aunt Angie would be so pleased to know that you loved her cookies so much!

  2. I am sure your family did not mind the experiments and I look forward to trying this recipe. Mildred Nalley
