I wanted to try a nice chocolate chips recipe that I can sell at the market, and remains crunchy and tender and keeps its texture for days to come...
I tried several options, even I changed the recipe by adding 1/4 cup of shortening with 3/4 cup of butter to see if i will get the tenderness with the same crunchy texture. the taste was very nice but they didn't hold its shape. a photo is attached to show you
I updated Lisa Michel's Copycat recipe and played with the ingredients a little, and because of the necessity to prepare several recipes ahead of time . On the baking day, I took the bag out , the dough was still very cold, barely I could shape it into cookie balls, and was baked in a preheated oven at 350F for 18-20 minutes ... the results are awesome cookies, gorgeous color and to top it all the cookies stayed , crunchy and tender (I saved some in a jar for testing)
I doubled the recipe I used because I wanted to keep some to see the texture of the cookies, and the amazing thing, the cookies kept the same taste and same texture for a whole 10 days , i was tasting half a cookie every day to see...nothing change....too bad, I didn't have any more cookies to test!!! haha since when a chocolate chip cookies lasts 10 days ????
