Everyone is always on the search for the best chocolate chip cookies, right? Well, no need to look any further, because I have that recipe right here. And not only that, but instructions on how to make your own cookie pizza using that recipe!
My mom was given this recipe awhile back after she tried these cookies at a church activity. When she made them, I was skeptical. She claimed they were the best cookies she had ever tried, and she knew I would feel the same way. For me, a chocolate chip cookie has to have the combination of softness, chewiness, chocolaty-ness, and butteriness. And these cookies have all that…and more.
Don’t ask me exactly why, but we are pretty sure it’s because of the butter flavored Crisco. We’ve made it with plain Crisco, and something is definitely missing!
This recipe was recently used in my house to make a cookie pizza for my brother-in-law’s birthday. I helped my sister make the final product, and we came up with a delicious frosting to put on top. This is an easy dessert that can make any celebration a little more fun.
This recipe can be made into one big cookie, or it makes two dozen — depending on what you want! I’ve also included the marshmallow frosting recipe below. I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine has!
