mmmm sounds yum! Wanna make some and share with the CRew??August 26, 2009 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm #1058447
Can I also share a recipe?
You will need
4 Dollars or
1 Credit Card or
Find a convenience store.
If they are open, walk in and use give the Dollars or Credit Card to the cashier in exchange for a package of Matts cc cookies.
EDITED (ask your LOR first though)
Matts makes the type of cookies that no one I met can believe are kosher, let alone parve (and mezonos!). Why bake, when EDITED.
Don’t worry squeak, now they’re all wondering what you really wrote. Makes the joke seem funnier somehow 😉 26August 26, 2009 7:14 pm at 7:14 pm #1058448
Isn’t that the Tollhouse Chocolate Chip recipe??? If not – the recipe on the back of a package of Nestle Tollhouse Chips is the absolute best, and I have tried ’em all, (just use the recipe itself, and save the chips for a milchig recipe as they are no longer pareve for some years now). Paszkesz (sp?) and Bloom or Mishpacha all make good chocolate chips. My secret to the best chocolate chip cookies ever, is always putting coarsely chopped walnuts into the batter. It is not the same without it. I also prefer the firmly packed DARK brown sugar to the lighter version or the brownulated, even though the latter is much easier to use.August 26, 2009 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #1058449
How do they know that I didn’t just write EDITED in there myself because I couldn’t come up with anything funny?August 26, 2009 7:20 pm at 7:20 pm #1058450

squeak, they don’t. It’s the ambiguity of it all that will drive them crazy.
mepal, why, thanks 🙂August 26, 2009 7:56 pm at 7:56 pm #1058452
ames, are you so desperate that you have to buy friends? 😉
Disclaimer: I have never tried this myself, I’ve heard it works very well.
Brown sugar has a tendency to harden into a rock-like form. Put a small piece of bread in the package and it lets out moisture so the sugar stays soft and usable.August 26, 2009 8:44 pm at 8:44 pm #1058453
She was probably just following the advice of Pirkei Avos, “K’nei l’cha chaver”. Unfortunately, there is no separate Pirkei Avos for women so everyone has to use the same one (despite the lack of gender neutral pronouns).August 26, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #1058454AnonymousInactive

my friend says that all the time…. mmmmmmAugust 26, 2009 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm #1058461
Please pardon my asking… But what is crisco please?
KaPUSTA- brown sugar also comes in a yellow plastic pack that says on it- the sugar that pours. Same company, same sugar but it doesn’t turn hard. Its great.August 26, 2009 9:33 pm at 9:33 pm #1058462
Crisco is the stuff that you rub on someone’s windshield wipers when you want to serve revenge cold.August 26, 2009 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #1058463
smartcookie, I should think you would know that. 😉 its shortening,= bad for you.
thats true, I was gonna say that but I forgot the technical name, so I just decided to leave it out. 😉August 26, 2009 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #1058464August 26, 2009 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #1058465
Pop 72, thanks for standing up for me 😉August 26, 2009 9:37 pm at 9:37 pm #1058466
yes, kapusta and ames have mentioned a popular side use of Crisco that I neglected to mention.August 26, 2009 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #1058467
SQUEAK- ha ha ur funny! I get it!!
Can it be substituted w reg margarine instead(no trans fat marg).August 26, 2009 10:20 pm at 10:20 pm #1058468lakewoodwifeParticipant
I used to think that that was the best recipe but a few years ago I found this one and it is AMAZING. It ends up being a chewy cookie that everyone comments on!
‘Hershey’s Soft & Chewy Cookies’
1 Cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine
3/4 Cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 Cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 pkg (10-12 oz) Chocolate (or any flavor) chips
Beat butter and sugars till fluffy. Add corn syrup, egg and van, beat well. Add flour, baking soda & salt (stir together, first), beating until well blended. mix in chips. drop by rounded tsp (I use a small ice cream scoop)onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 min at 350.
Variation: decrease flour to 2 1/4 cups and add 1/4 cup cocoa to make choc cookies.
I usually use the candy covered choc chips, mixed with regular mini chips in the vanilla cookies and peanut butter chips in the chocolate cookies. YUM!!!
This recipe comes from a cookbook/pamphlet called ‘Bake Sale Favorites’August 26, 2009 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #1058469
crisco brand shortening does not have trans fat it however does have sat fat but so does marg no?August 27, 2009 12:05 am at 12:05 am #1058470YW Moderator-72Participant
ok, time for the bake-off.
ames and lakewoodwife
make one batch regular and one batch using a sugar substitute, sugar free chocolate and whole wheat flour.
send them over…
the Jr-72’s will have the reg batch and the custom batch(make a double recipe) i will sample…August 27, 2009 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1058471tzippiMember
About Crisco: Smart Balance used to make a trans fat free shortening in the same 3 lb. containers, competitively priced. Unfortunately the best you can get now are the expensive tubs. Smart Balance makes a pareve slightly reduced fat (9 grams vs. the normal 11 -13) margarine that can be substituted for regular margarine as it’s still pretty high fat.
A few great recipes:
The “Neiman Marcus” one with the ground oatmeal (grind a lot and keep it in your freezer for easier baking, just freeze in the amounts you’ll need). I leave out the nuts and extra grated chocolate, and instead of 2 cups of margarine, use one each of margarine and shortening, or 2/3 each of marg., short., and oil.
In one of Levana Kirschenbaum’s cookbooks she has a wonderful choc. chip cookie recipe with oil. I’d share it but it’s copyrighted and this is too broad a forum.
Ditto for an out of this world cookie from America’s Test Kitchen. It’s in their cookbooks. It’s a double chocolate chip cookie. A bit of a patchke but sooo worth it. And use Taster’s Choice French Vanilla coffee for the coffee powder called for. (A great sub all the time.)August 27, 2009 2:21 am at 2:21 am #1058472LAerMember
Oomis, that’s not the Toll House recipe – but the Toll House ones are definitely MY favorite! I’ll try to post it if anyone wants. And lakewoodwife, those sound great. By the way, the Hershey’s “Perfectly Chocolate” cake and frosting are by far the BEST chocolate cake and frosting – moist, long lasting, delicious! It’s on the back of every Hershey’s Cocoa container (and I think that the recipe is in the Kosher Palette or By Design, but not the frosting).August 27, 2009 2:57 am at 2:57 am #1058473
MCHEMTOB- there is a pretty new marg that does not have trans fat- its a clear and blue wrapper. I only use this one. same thing just missing the real unhealthy stuff(dont think it equals to spinach now though cuz it really doesnt!!!)August 27, 2009 5:22 am at 5:22 am #1058474
for trans fat free marg i use earth balance sticks like for rice crispie treats and what not… but into e/o life a little crisco may fall. either way you look at it they are both unhealthy and yummy. we should all just stick to fruit.August 27, 2009 3:58 pm at 3:58 pm #1058475jewishfeminist02Member
I’m getting hungry just reading this thread.August 27, 2009 4:03 pm at 4:03 pm #1058476
Crisco makes you hungry? 😉August 27, 2009 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #1058477jewishfeminist02Member
No, it was all the different cookie recipes- but I have Crisco on the brain anyway. One of the books I’m reading for my journalism class has a really long section on the marketing of Crisco by Procter and Gamble and the effect it had on the advertising industry.August 27, 2009 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1058478feivelParticipant
“Crisco on the Brain”
sounds like an interesting syndrome.
can you tell me more about it?
i might do a “feivels wonders of creation” about itAugust 27, 2009 4:27 pm at 4:27 pm #1058479
lol, I was just kidding.August 27, 2009 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1058480tzippiMember
Ames, about your original recipe – 1 c. Crisco = 1 stick = half a can.
1 c will be 16 Tbsp, which is usually two sticks of margarine but the shortening sticks do seem larger. I do have to ask how big your can is. Most cans I see are 48 oz. (3 lb) which I think is SIX cups.
So if anyone makes the recipe and wonders if they have the right size can, stick, etc. just be sure that you have 1 full cup, or 16 tablespoons.August 27, 2009 6:24 pm at 6:24 pm #1058481PhyllisMember
For the best cookies ever look in the cover of teh Quaker oats box. They are called Vanishing oatmeal cookies, cuz when u make a batch they vanish! I sub the raisins for chocolate chips thus they are chocolate chip oatmeal cookies!!August 27, 2009 6:55 pm at 6:55 pm #1058482yoyoMember
they all sound scrumptious but does anyone have a really dietetic one with less fat and calories for all those who are trying to watch themselves?August 27, 2009 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #1058483
i also use the recippe on the top of the box however i always omit the cinnamon and we like to use craisins or choc chips. but i’ve been to lazy to check the oat and yashan just started also so….August 27, 2009 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1058484
The best low-fat, low calorie cookies are meringues. They only use egg whites and sugar, but you can try substituting Splenda for the sugar or even half and half Splenda/sugar. The meringues are delicious and almost unlimited, in terms of being “legal” for weight watchers and diabetics.August 28, 2009 2:54 am at 2:54 am #1058485
phyllis- those are really delicious but not the typical choco chip cookie, it does have more of an oatmeal taste and texture. I just had two bags in my freezer that just vanished like that! they were yum. thinking of doing another batch.August 30, 2009 3:26 pm at 3:26 pm #1058486Mrs. BeautifulMember
Phyllis, My sister in law makes those all the time using the recipe off of the Quaker box. I used to think they were these healthy dietetic oatmeal cookies (boasting oatmeal and raisins). When I started making them I realized that they are super duper in TASTE and in CALORIES!!!August 14, 2011 6:07 pm at 6:07 pm #1058487observanteenMember
I’m in the mood of baking and I looked for some good recipes on here.
Oomis, I decided the Toll House sounds best. Can I use oil instead of margarine? Also, is it ok if I don’t use the nuts? Thanks in advance.August 15, 2011 1:54 am at 1:54 am #1058488tomim tihyeMember
Now, why did I click on this thread when I’ve got a dozen luscious fruits in my crisper?November 10, 2011 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm #1058489observanteenMember
Oomis, I owe you my thanks. This choco chip cookie recipe is a HIT! My sibs love them. I added nut crunch instead of regular nuts, and they’re delicious. It adds a new twist. Thank you for posting it!January 28, 2015 11:57 am at 11:57 am #1058490
This is so weird! It says the thread was started by ames…..but it doesnt have the OP! Where did it go? (Only found this thread coz was looking for a chocolate chip cookie recipe 🙂 )January 28, 2015 1:47 pm at 1:47 pm #1058491
Go with the one on nestles tollhouse morsels’ package, just use pareve chips. It really is the best recipe I have ever used. Belated “you are welcome,” to observanteen.January 28, 2015 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #1058492
umm I never heard of those! Are they an American brand? Where can u get them? Very possibly they sell them where I live truth is I don’t really notice these types of things 🙂January 28, 2015 8:50 pm at 8:50 pm #1058493
Nestles Morsels are not pareve or cholov Yisroel (if that is a concern for you). But there are plenty of good chocolate chips on the market that are kosher. Paszkez, Blooms, Liebers, Gefen, etc. Just use the recipe on the back of the Nestles package. The other packages don’t follow that recipe (as far as I know).February 2, 2015 7:43 am at 7:43 am #1058494
I used a recipe from the ami – it was amazing! They tasted milchig 🙂February 2, 2015 1:22 pm at 1:22 pm #1058495Rema711Member
cozimjewish or try a whole package of chocolate flavored tea biscuits, a whole container of chocolate flavored fluff, and a whole package of tootsie rolls, and a whole bottle of chocolate syrup and mix that up together and roll the batter into Palm sized chocolate balls, and enjoy the chocolaty goodness
