We've lived in Colorado four years now and in that time I've never baked a decent batch of chocolate chip cookies. Not one. Oh, they're edible, but they turn out flatter than pancakes, in large part due to altitude. I've adjusted my recipe countless times, but even with adjustments my cookies still turn out flat. Until today.
A couple of weeks ago, while reading Barb's blog she posted about her similar chocolate chip cookie woes, and one of her readers responded and gave her this recipe. Oh my goodness! For the first time in 4+ years my cookies look like this. I've pulled dozen after beautiful, fluffy dozen out of my oven this afternoon. So, so happy about that!
Abbey said they were yummy, and I'll have to get Will and Sarah's verdict after school. And John's verdict after dinner tonight. I haven't tried one because of that weird not liking chocolate quirk I have. But they sure do look and smell mah-velous!.
I think the secret to this recipe is more flour, more vanilla, and Crisco. (If you think I'm weird about chocolate, don't even get me started on Crisco. Ugh.)

Thank you, Barb! This recipe is a keeper!!!
