the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've found yet is the Mrs. Field one. Check out a copycat recipe site and it should be there.
Editor's Note: Here is a good site for CopyCat recipes although there are many. Put Mrs. Fields in their search box and lots of their recipes come up.
This isn't a recipe but is a tried-and-true tip for softening any type of cookie: place a piece of bread in your sealed container of cookies. The moisture in the bread transfers to the cookies! Yum! (Works to soften brown sugar, too!)
Chocolate Wacky Cake: Combine all ingred. in one bowl, mix well w/ mixer, (will be pretty runny), pour into greased 9x13, 350-degr. for 45 minutes, check after 35 minutes, do not overbake. Recipe: 3 cups flour, 2 cups sugar, 1 tsp salt, 6 tbsp cocoa (not dutch process is best), 2 tsp baking soda, 3/4 cup cooking oil, 2 tbsp white vinegar, 2 tbsp vanilla. Pour in 2 cups water, mix well & bake. For richer taste, pour in 2 cups cold strong coffee (liquid, not instant or grounds) INSTEAD of water. This is a good moist cake. Doesn't taste like vinegar/coffee at all. Easy. Yummy w/ just about any frosting, but our favorite is peanut butter! No recipe, just by looks. About 1/2 cup p.btr., about 2-3 cups pwdr. sugar, slowly add milk to mix it into frosting. Note: Too much p.btr. it will be greasy & too soft. Can make choc-p.btr. by adding a bit of cocoa to it. YUM! If want recipe for 1/2 sheet cake, email I have converted it perfectly.
I sometimes add instant pudding powder to the mix depending on how many cookies your making, I usually only use half the packet. Makes cookies softer and I also never cook them for the full time indicated.
An old trick my mother gave me to keep cookies from going hard - add a piece of apple to your container of cookies. Works well. Also, try baking your cookies for less time - try one minute less to start. My oven cooks things quicker than most recipes so I cut back about 5 min., then keep checking.
