I might eat a chocolate chip cookie (or four) every day.
They are one of my favorite foods. Seriously.
If only they were a vegetable....
In honor of my two year bloggy anniversary I am going to share the recipe I use for chocolate chip cookies. They are soft, sweet, and a little salty. I LOVE them.
Because I love them SO much and I am thankful for all my blogging friends, I am going to share a little chocolate chip cookie love and send two readers their very own bag of homemade chocolate chip cookies. Leave me a comment about your favorite cookie or your favorite way to enjoy a cookie. I will draw the two winners on Wednesday August 26th.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe tweaked a little bit from Betty Crocker Cookie Cookbook
1 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla
3 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 (11.5 oz) milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together shortening, butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla. Add in flour, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Add chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls (or use a cookie scoop) onto a cookie sheet and bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen (depending on how much dough Lance sneaks from the bowl) Enjoy!
