Cookie Madness

After this post, several people were asking me for that cookie recipe. I think a lot of people have one favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe that they always turn too. This recipe is one that I used with a 7th grade Home Economics Class when I was student teaching. I was teaching a lesson on measuring. This is the recipe I always turn to when I need one. I remember my supervising teacher telling me I cooked them too long because they were not soft and chewy, but I like mine soft but crunchy, so I guess everyone has there own preference on how to make cookies. Here is my recipe:
Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies(from The Southern Living Cookbook)
3/4 cup butter
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (12 ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels (I have used white chocolate chips, Milk chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, and M&M's or a combination of several)
Cream butter and shortening; gradually add sugars, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well. Combine flour, soda, and salt; add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in chocolate morsels. (or whatever chips you want to use) Drop dough by heaping teaspoons (I use an old measuring cup that was in a set used to measure coffee and it makes them all the perfect size.) onto ungreased cookie sheets(I use a stone and like the results better). Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Yield: about 6 1/2 dozen
My son asked me when I was going to make some more of those cookies. I have not made them any for a long time. So, I decided to try to find some new recipes and I posted several on Lorie's To-Do blog that I am going to try. Go visit Lorie's To-Do if you are interested in more cookie recipes.
