Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies


In an attempt to woo my way into the hearts of my son’s preschool teachers, I have been baking batches of the following chocolate chip cookie recipe:

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter-flavored shortening
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups All-purpose flour
2 tsp vanilla
3/4 tsp salt (I like ’em salty, but if you don’t like salty as much add only 1/2tsp)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine shortening and both sugars. Mix with electric mixer on “low” just until blended. Add eggs, vanilla, flour, baking soda, and salt and mix well on medium/low speed. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Drop cookie dough by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 9-12 minutes (or until golden brown).

Tip: Do NOT leave these lying around the house. I cannot resist them which is why I promptly give them away.

Here’s to making my friends and neighbors fat one chocolate chip cookie at a time!

Happy Monday!
