RECIPE: Chocolate Chip Cookies

We all have a recipe that brings us back to our childhood and this is mine!  For those of you who grew up in New Richland you will remember the Quiram’s Bakery chocolate chip cookies.  I think this recipe tastes just like them and I LOVE them!  So I’m sharing them with you so you can get a little taste of nostalgia!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 c white sugar

1 c brown sugar

10 T sweet cream butter, softened

10 T shortening (Crisco brand makes a difference!)

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

2 2/3 c flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 package mini chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place butter and shortening in the mixing bowl.

2.  Add both sugars and beat until smooth and creamy.

3. Add eggs one at a time and mix well.  Also add vanilla.

4.  Add flour, baking soda, and salt in small amounts and beat until incorporated.  Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are mixed in.

5.  Add chocolate chips and beat until they are all mixed in.

6.  Scoop dough onto pan leaving enough room for them to spread out.  I sometimes like to do small cookies so I just use my 1 T scoop.  If you want a larger cookie the 2 T scoops work well too.

7. Bake 8-10 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown on the edges but not too dark.  I bake them until they are just barely looking done.  Then I leave them sit on the cookie sheet for a minute because they will set up and are then easy to scoop off the pan.  Place on a cooling rack until they are cool enough to stack.

Just a note…try not to eat all the dough raw.  I have an issue with this and end up eating several cookies worth of dough!  ENJOY!!
