Cookie, Anyone

Chocolate Chip Cookies



2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup shortening

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (12oz.)


1. Preheat oven to 375º F

2. In a large bowl, combine flour,

baking soda and salt; set aside.

In another bowl, beat butter and

shortening at medium speed

until well-blended and fluffy;

gradually add sugar and brown

sugar, beat well. Add eggs and

vanilla, beat well. Add flour

mixture to butter mixture, mix

well. Stir in chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons

about 2 inches apart on baking

sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes. Cool

slightly on baking sheet; cool

completely on wire rack.


The blue mat that the cookies are on is silicon, I'm testing it out for the Cooking Club of America, then I let them know what I think. I think it's very cool and worth checking out. No need for a spatula to remove the cookies and the mat can withstand up to 500º. You can also freeze them and then take them straight to the oven. Fold them up for great storage, they never lose their shape. A good investment!


Have a great week!
