12 Days of Cookies- Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are simple and classic. They have always been my favorite. Random Crafty Georgia Girl 12 Days of Cookies 2016 holiday series Monster CookiesChocolate chip cookies are a timeless classic. Everyone has their favorite recipes for them and there’s no two recipes alike.

My recipe is from Crisco.

3/4 stick shortening
1 1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat shortening, and brown sugar in a large bowl on medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in milk, vanilla, and egg.

Combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Stir into shortening mixture until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons two inches apart on un-greased baking sheet.

Bake 8-13 minutes until lightly browned. Cool two minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.

I love how soft the cookies are with this recipe. I don’t know about you but I really like softer chocolate chip cookies!

    Your grandmother could never make those. They always came out hard. Eventually she started using the ready made cookie mixes and they turned out good.

      Haha! I know! That’s why I didn’t mention her in this post! I don’t remember her ever making chocolate chip cookies!
