Copycat Chips Ahoy Cookies

Copycat Chips Ahoy Cookies

I stumbled upon this recipe recently while trying to figure out what to do with some Crisco brand shortening that was just hanging out in my pantry. I went online and looked through recipes calling for shortening. I stumbled upon this recipe from allrecipes com.

When I made these cookies I was trying to use up older pantry products, and in addition to the shortening I wanted to use, I also had some older self rising flour that needed to go. In the States self rising flour is a combination of regular or all-purpose flour with the addition of baking powder and salt.

These are a crispy cookie that is amazing dipped in milk. As soon as I tried them they reminded me of ChipsAhoy cookies. I suspect the difference has to do with the baking powder in the self rising flour and the omission of the baking soda. I am not sure of the science but these are a win and will now be a permanent cookie recipe in our family.
