Pinspiration in the Kitchen- Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have a tried and true chocolate chip cookie recipe that I have stood by for many, many years.  It started over 10 years ago when I bought my first pack of Butter Crisco sticks. I tried the recipe for the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies that came with the pack, and knew I had found my go-to recipe.  These cookies became much requested by my family over the years. Yes, I have tried different recipes here and there, but nothing that came close to my Butter Crisco recipe.
Until this week...

This week I decided to try Once Upon a Chef's recipe for Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Click here for the recipe.
So, what are the secret ingredients?  You will have to click on the recipe link above to find out.  I don't want to give away all of Once Upon a Chef's secrets. ;)
The only ingredient I left out was the pecans.  I didn't actually have any in the house, so I just opted to forgo them.  They were amazing without them, but I am sure they are amazing with them as well.
My family LOVED them.  Heck, I loved them.  I ate 3 within 30 minutes of them being out of the oven!  These are seriously THE BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever made.  After trying one, my husband said that I would be lucky if any of these cookies made it until the morning!  Well, they made it past morning, but not by much.  By the next evening, the entire batch was gone!
