A cloudy day in paradise can be turned around with one batch of these bad boys. I have no idea where this recipe originated from, all I know is that I stole it from my sister and will never stray.
They are full of everything that is oh-so-bad.
But they are oh-so-goooood.3/4 c. brown sugar 1/2 c. sugar 1/2 c. shortening 1/2 c. butter or margarine 1 + 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 egg 1 + 3/4 c. flour 1 tsp. baking soda 1/2 tsp. salt 1 6 oz. pkg of chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In bowl, beat brown sugar, sugar, margarine and shortening until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; beat well. Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix with hands. Mix in chocolate chips.
Form into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Remove and let cool on pan for 5 minutes before transferring to wire rack for 10 minutes. Store in air-tight container to retain moisture.They taste best if eaten in batches of six. =)
*Time and energy saving tip – have two pans going at once. While you are letting one batch of cookies cool, stick the other pan in the oven. Repeat!
I can tell you where they originated from!
It’s a Pillsbury cookbook that was donated to me from a lovely woman in Brooks. It was published in 1989.
Yay random-woman-in-Brooks! Best cookies ever!
