Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grandma's Recipe Box: Chocolate Chip Cookies

 
From the "Betty Crocker Cooky Wise" booklet
 

 
(Chocolate Chip Cookies are "drop cookies" because you "drop" the batter onto the pan.
Brilliant, I know.)
 
 
Mix the following ingredients thoroughly... 

2/3 cup soft shortening (part butter) - we used all butter

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup brown sugar (packed)

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla
 
 
 Stir together and blend in…

1 ½ cups Gold Medal Flour (for a softer more rounded cookie, use 1 3/4 cups flour)

½ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt
 

Stir in…

½ cup cut-up nuts (optional)

½ pkg. (6 oz.) semisweet chocolate pieces (about 1 ¼ cups)
 
 
Drop rounded teaspoons about 2” apart on un-greased baking sheet. Bake until delicately browned; cookies should still be soft. Cool slightly before removing for baking sheet.

Temperature: 375 F.

Time: Bake 8-10 min.

Amount: 4 to 5 dozen 2” cookies




 
Enjoy this delicious recipe! We did! ;)
