Here are some delicious cookies that I got from my 10 year old reader, Miss Alex. What really was interesting to me about this recipe was that you use butter flavored shortening. My Dad described these accurately...."just a good ol' Chocolate Chip Cookie".
½ cup unrefined sugar (you could use regular sugar, this just gives it a great texture)
½ cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup butter flavored shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups unbleached flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 package milk chocolate chunks or chips
Cream eggs, butter, shortening and sugars. Add vanilla and dry ingredients. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 8 – 10 minutes or until golden brown.
