Guest Post: Good Old-Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies

(Here’s another post by Julie, yay!)

It must be done. These chocolate chip cookies are just too good to keep a secret any longer. These cookies have been passed down the generations from Drew’s and my grandmother. They’re made with sugar, brown sugar, Crisco, eggs, flour, vanilla, salt, baking soda, oatmeal, chocolate chips, and optional nuts. (not seen here) The oatmeal makes them healthy.

chocolate chip cookies

3/4 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
1 C Crisco shortening (or one stick, if you can find it in stick form, which I totally recommend- a lot less messy. More packaging however)

Mix together, then mix in 2 eggs.

In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients…

1 1/2 C sifted flour (My mom adds 3 TBS)
1 ts soda
1 ts salt
1 ts vanilla (pure, use 1/2 of that)

Combine. Then add 2 C old-fashioned oats (quick also works), 1 C nuts, optional, like your mom, 1 1/2 C or 3/4 package chocolate chips.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-9 minutes.

*Important Notes*
Be prepared to add more flour than what is given. If cookies come out flat on the first batch, add more flour. “Sifted flour?” hmm… over rated? Or it could be that I just don’t understand how to do it right.

I find it a lot easier just to add the chocolate chips individually to the cookies, everybody seems to want a different proportion of chocolate to cookie, and I end up using way less than what the recipe calls for.

Rumor has it Grandma took the recipe from the back of a bag of flour. I’m salivating just looking at this picture. Must… bake… more…

    Mmmmm. These look delicious! I love your frank statement ("The oatmeal makes them healthy.") The oatmeal obviously overrules the sugar and shortening and chocolate chips. Duh. :D
