For the morning show bake-off I decided to make the chocolate chip cookies I grew up making with my my mom. I believe the recipe comesllllfrom an old Betty Crocker cookbook but I have it handwritten on some notecards. Here's the recipe if you want to try them yourself!
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup margarine or butter, softened
- 1/3 cup shortening
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 package (6 ounces) of semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375. Mix sugars, butter, shortening, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until light brown, 8-10 minutes. Cool slightly before removing from cookie sheet. Make about 1 1/2 dozed
