My Favorite Cookies

I am running low on things to post for right now, so I am going to share my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.  It is a combination of recipes. I just kept substituting ingredients until I came up with one I liked.  Feel free to substitute ingredients as you see fit.  The kids like M&M's instead of chocolate chips.

          1 cup buttered flavor shortening
          1 1/2 cups brown sugar
          2 eggs
          1 tsp. vanilla
          2 1/4 cups ap flour
          1 tsp salt
          1 tsp baking soda
          1 1/2 - 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

I generally mix the first 4 ingredients together and then add the dry ingredients.  I add chocolate chips last.

Bake at 375 for 7 minutes.  Take them out of the oven but leave them on the pan for 3 more minutes.  If you choose to take the cookies off the pan immediately, they will be doughy.  If you choose to bake them for 9 minutes, they will be crispier.    

Just an idea of what to do with extra cookie dough over at bakerella.

I asked Scott if you could cook. He said probably...she is Granny's granddaughter. I can't wait to try these. It is much easier than what I do, and it is Scott's favorite. What a treat to make my hubby his favorite dessert from a should have been sister's recipe book.
