I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

My World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everyone has a "world's best"  this or that.  Well until I find another one, THIS is MY World's Best Chocolate Chip Cookie!

1  1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup margarine
1/2 cup butter-flavoured shortening
1/2 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
1 tbsp vanilla

4  1/4 cups flour
2 tbsps cornstarch
2 tsps baking soda
3 tbsps cocoa
1 tsp salt

1  1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans

mini M and M's (optional)

Cream together the first six ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix together the five dry ingredients.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet by thirds, incorporating well each addition.

Fold in the chocolate chips and pecans.  The batter is thick. 

Take 2 tbsps size balls of dough and lightly flatten on a parchment lined baking sheet.  At this point you can press some M and M's on top, or even add more chocolate chips or pecans to make the tops look more perfect.

You can also try dipping your dough ball in sugar and press.
Bake in a 350F oven for 15 minutes


Makes 3  1/2 dozen perfect cookies.
Just the right size and not too cakey, not too crisp.
