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 ????
My new Chocolate Chips Cookies came out perfect, crumbly, crunchy and at the same time remained tender and didn't turn hard even after 10 days.
