Yes, I know there are thousands of chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. But , my nephew loves the soft and chewy kind.I tried a bunch of recipes out , everything from shortening, corn syrup and vanilla pudding among some of the ingredients.He and I never really love any of then. So, I put my culinary skills to the test. After a few months , I came up with this recipe and we love it. I hope you do too.

1 teaspoon of salt
1 1/2 baking power
