Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Just like my best friend Ashley brought her mother's Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad recipe to college, my other roommate and best friend Anna brought these delicious cookies. The last time I made them, the boyfriend declared them "maybe the best chocolate chip cookie" he has ever had. And that is no joke considering his cousin Amber has quite a reputation for cookie making. The secret? chunky salt to bring out the chocolatey-ness.

I made these with my mom last weekend for 4th of July and although this batch came out quite flat, they are usually quite chunky.

Start by creaming the crisco, eggs and white sugar. Then add in the rest of your ingredients, like flour.

Chocolate chips

and oatmeal.

Because we were making these in my mom's nifty kitchen, we used her specially reserved ice cream scoop to make identically sized cookies.

See? perfect!

Bake for about 10 minutes but don't overcook them! They don't actually look done when they are- just make sure they aren't still jiggling

And try to eat them outdoors- from a recycled Christmas cookie tin.
