Best Snickerdoodles and Chocolate Chip Monster Cookies Recipe
Best Snickerdoodle and chocolate chip cookie recipe! I like my cookies big and fat with a good chew. I found a great chocolate chip cookie at my local market made by Carol’s. It was so good, with a melt-in-your-mouth shortbread like quality but not too dry and crumbly. I had to find the recipe even though I am certain she guards hers! I found this Colossal Hard Boiled Egg Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe and it was close! I made the recipe a few times and even had people request the recipe but I still wanted to perfect it, plus the idea of using hard boiled eggs grossed me out even though this is a fantastic cookie!
I use basically the same recipe but instead of the hard boiled eggs, I blend the eggs, vanilla and lemon juice together and gently add it to the “shortbread” crumb mixture just until everything sticks together like you are making a pie crust; you don’t want to over work the dough! I have no idea what Carol’s Snickerdoodles taste like but these are the best! I use the same recipe for the chocolate chip cookies see the details at the end of the recipe….these come out almost like Carol’s with the toffee bits! Note: my food processor is a normal size but I had to do this in two batches because it is just too much dough to fit in my processor all at once! You can also just half the recipe to make one batch…but then that makes only about 7 cookies…
For the Snickerdoodles:
This Snickerdoodle recipe is now my favorite cookie, even tops any chocolate chip except maybe this one!
So did you figure out the secret to great cookies? The first is the bread flour, it gives the cookie more weight and chew, then the cornstarch will add a delicate crispness to the outside and finally baking on parchment paper keeps the cookie from spreading thin ( if you like fat cookies!)
