Kristina at Kristina's Favorites is hosting Midweek Morsels on Wednesday - check out other great recipes.
It was just that little bit overcast and cool enough today to think about making cookies. When I suggested I might make cookies, three voices shouted out 'Chocolate chip!' when I asked what kind should I make. We make the best chocolate chip cookies, seriously. I know everyone likes their own recipe, but these are crispy the outside and chewy on the inside, they freeze spectacularly and might even be better frozen. When my sister and I were young we would make triple and quadruple batches. They are so good!
Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 C shortening
1/4 C white sugar
1/2 C brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 C flour
chocolate chips (you know how many you like)
1/2 C chopped walnuts
Cream together shortening, sugars, and vanilla. Add egg and stir. Add flour, soda, and salt. Combine. Add chips and nuts. Mix thoroughly. Drop onto greased sheets, bake 7-10 minutes at 375 F.
(Mine tend to flatten right out once out of the oven, so that the chips are bulging out.)
