My last batch of cookies were a little on the crunchy side, so I wanted to try something a little different this time. I happened to have some crisco in the pantry from the doughnuts recipe I made a couple of weeks ago, and on that package was a recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
Cue flashback: When I was younger, we had groups in school where the older children would look after and teach the younger ones about cleaning, sewing and baking. On our baking week, we were going to make chocolate chip cookies, but when I got into the kitchen with the girls, well, there were no ingredients.
I had to get creative. No butter – we’ll use crisco. No eggs – we’ll use crisco. No vanilla – we’ll use crisco! We had chocolate chips, sugar, and flour. …actually those and crisco were the ONLY things we had that day. In the end, the cookies (if you can call them that) weren’t bad really. A little on the greasy side.
So yes, when I saw that recipe on the back of the box, I thought of that day in the kitchen with the girls and those greasy, creative cookies. Although this recipe is a major improvement.
