After experimenting with multiple different recipes, I have come to the conclusion that by following this recipe you can make the perfect cookie that is both a combination of soft and chewy texture. What makes this recipe different from other recipes is that it uses a different ratio of sugar to fat than other recipes. While most recipes call for 2 cups of sugar to 1 cup of fat, this recipe used only 3/4 cup of sugar to 1/2 cup of fat. In addition this recipe called for a crumbly consistency once the flour was added, while many other recipes say to add flour until you get a slightly tacky consistency. These two differences make this recipe stand out, and in my opinion make it the perfect recipe to follow.
