What is the secret to creating scrumptiously delicious chocolate chip cookies?

Question by kristin.: What is the secret to creating scrumptiously delicious chocolate chip cookies?
I love to bake, and I especially love making homemade cookies.
I can never seem to get the chocolate chip cookies quite right though.
Does anyone have a recipe that will have everyone saying ‘WOW! That’s delicious!’?
I’d be delighted if you shared it with me!
Thanks so much. (:

I just use the standard Toll House recipe on the back of a chocolate chip bag. I replace the margarine/butter with butter-flavored Crisco, it tastes more like butter in baked goods than butter! I decrease the amount of white sugar by 1/2 cup and then add 1 4-oz. package of instant vanilla pudding. Roll the cookies into a ball and bake as directed on the package. The cookies stay very soft (they NEVER get hard) and they taste very rich, buttery, and chocolatey!

    Basic toll house one is what I”ve always used.
    Just made some.

    3/4 cups of butter
    3/4 cups of sugar
    3/4 cups of brown sugar
    combine together
    then add in
    2 eggs
    1 tsp of vanilla
    1/4 tsp of salt
    1/2 tsp of baking soda, dissolved in 1/2 tsp of water
    mix well
    add in
    2 1/4 cups of flour
    amount of chocolate chips you like.(add as little or as many as you like, it won’t screw up the recipe)
    add nuts if you like

    Drop by spoonful onto parchment lined cookies sheets, bake 350 degree oven until soft and golden, take them out before they are brown, they continue to bake after you take them out.

    Now my trick for all cookies is to use at least 4 cookie sheets…this way you always have 2 in baking and 2 out cooling and loading up with your next batch. You never want to load up hot cookie sheets..the batter will spread.
    Always line your sheets with parchment paper, you’ll never burn another cookie again. And you can line once, bake, and load up again using the same sheet of parchment paper.
    Also in my oven chocolate chips cookies take 12 minutes. At 6 minutes into baking time, I switch the top sheet with the bottom sheet and I turn them 180 degrees to get an even baking.
    Mine are just about done at 12 minutes, but I take them out as they will continue to bake! I transfer immediately to baking racks and let the cookies cool.

    These are the best!!!

    2 1/2 c Oatmeal
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 eggs
    2 c flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 cups milk chocolate chips
    1 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking soda
    4 oz grated hershey bar

    Measure oatmeal and blend in a blender to a fine powder. Cream butter and both sugars. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix together flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda. Bake for 10 min at 375 degrees.

    **the key to any cookie is not over cooking them. Take them out while they are still a little gooey in the middle and they will firm as they cool and won’t be hard!
