    I add instant French Vanilla to all my cookies. Just 2 Tablespoons to just about any cookie adds to the softness and moist(ness) to each cookie. It is important not to add more that the 2 Tablespoons to the recipe.

    I have had it in chocolate chip, peanut butter, oatmeal etc. It still makes the edges of the cookies crisp that is always wanted.

    I also always use real butter. If you are going to have cookies might as well have the best.

    A must have is BUTTER over margarine. Butter is richer and makes for a better tasting cookie and its used for most cookie recipes. For Chocolate Chip or any Chocolate Cookies it has to be Semi Sweet Chocolate and it has to be quality Chocolate. I would never substitute either one for anything less then the best.
