Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

My daughter recently had several friends over to watch the premiere of Descendants 3 on the Disney Channel. To add to the festivities, I based all of the food on the previous two movies. If you are a Descendants fan, then you know that Mal puts a love spell on Ben with a chocolate chip cookie recipe that had walnuts and called for one tear of human sadness. For the party, I pulled out our favorite Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe and turned it into One Tear of Human Sadness Cookies. I substituted walnuts for the pecans &, of course, did not add one tear of human sadness.

Baking Tip

The original recipe calls for 3/4 cup of butter flavored Crisco. Sometimes, I substitute 3/4 cup butter for the Crisco. Typically, though, I use 1/2 cup Crisco & 1/4 cup butter because I like the texture better. Using all butter yields much flatter cookies that tend to be crisper than I like.

If you prefer your chocolate chip cookies without nuts, eliminate them and double the amount of chocolate chips to 2 cups.

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
