Baker in Training

Isaac helped me bake chocolate chip cookies yesterday afternoon. He loves to help me in the kitchen, and he always needs “his” apron to help. Of course the best part to him is tasting the end results! 🙂

 I have tried several recipe’s for chocolate chip cookies, but this one that I got from my mother-in-law is my favorite. They always turn out delicious!

Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 pkg. (12 oz.) Semi-sweet Chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix thoroughly shortening, butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by rounded teaspoon fulls two inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until light brown.
