This is one of my favorite recipes for chocolate chip cookies. They turn out perfect every time! Plus there are gluten-free and dairy-free instructions too!
In my free time, I love to bake. I love to see the smiles on my kid’s faces when a fresh pan of cookies comes out of the oven. Oh, and my house at Christmas time, let’s just say you need to put on pants with an elastic waistband.
My daughter was diagnosed with a severe allergy to milk when she was small. So, it has slowed my baking down a little. It took us awhile to convert my old recipes into new ones. I was a big butter baker. I have since had to change. Now, I have found that if I use butter flavored Crisco, I get pretty good results. I get alright results with margarine, but the best with good old butter.
