Who doesn’t love a warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie? The original recipe calls for a cup of butter, but I have always found that a cup of shortening delivers a fluffier product. My family certainly agrees!
The first time I made these my hubs was like, “Fruitcake cookies? Not sure about that.” Once he tried them, he was hooked! They are so light & so tasty! And, the lemon drizzle ~ YAAAS!!!!
Aren’t these the sweetest looking cookies. I used my usual recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies and simply sprinkled with red and green sugar crystals. My recipe for chocolate chip cookies will ensure you have moist, fluffy cookies, because I learned a long time ago to switch out butter for shortening. I used butter flavored shortening for this batch! Enjoy!
