I am going to share with you a recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies. I know everyone has the recipe but I’ll bet none of your recipe cards look like this one. This is what the original card looks like after about 45 years of being there for me. Don wants to frame it. Who knows?
- 1/3 cup soft butter, not margarine
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup Chocolate Chips
- 1/4 – 1/3 cup chopped white Chocolate (melting chocolate disks are best
- 1/2 cup Chopped pecans
Beat together 1/3 cup soft butter and 1/3 cup shortening until well blended, then add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar.
Beat in 1 large egg, 1 tsp. pure vanilla until all is light and fluffy. Add 1 1/4 cups sifted flour, 1/2 tsp. baking soda and a pinch of salt. Blend well.
Now stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1/2-1 cup chopped pecans, 1/2 cup white chocolate wafers: this will be a stiff batter. Drop by tbsp. onto parchment lined cookie sheets and in a 375 degree oven, bake for 10-12 minutes.
If, after a few days should there be leftovers, just warm them up for about 10 seconds in the microwave and presto! Just out of the oven cookies.
Whomever you give these to will always want more. Here is where keeping it tasty is key.
