What is better than a Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie that is warm just out of the oven? Why, another Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie, that’s what! Unless you live in a far away place isolated from modern conveniences you can relate to what I am talking about. Wanting to put a spin on the popular cookie I conferred with JoJo on how to make them different this year. The recipe developer in her came right out and she immediately offered that we needed to change the way we bake them, and leave the recipe alone. I agreed. And other than the fact we both put the vanilla in the batter (it didn’t hurt a thing), our cookies became the best we had ever made! We didn’t want bars or muffins, the giant cookie was out, so we made our cookies in a muffin pan. That allowed us to make all the cookies the same size, and they rose about half as tall as a muffin would. They cooked completely without burning and no raw middles. They stayed soft and didn’t crumble when we ate them, and they looked so gorgeous! Another hit from my favorite bestie, JoJo! We had so much fun baking these we are still laughing today!
