Grandma Sanders’ Chocolate Chip Cookies

31 Jan

Baking is what I do when I feel guilty for procrastinating and I feel like I need to do something productive. I avoid my homework and replace it with eggs and sugar and fat. Last night I made some extra delicious chocolate chip cookies. I brought some to a meeting at school this morning and was asked to post the recipe online. So here it is, straight from my grandma’s kitchen to yours:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 oz. chocolate chips (semi-sweet or milk chocolate, whichever you prefer)
  • Optional: 3/4 cup chopped nuts and/or raisins

Cream together sugars, shortening and eggs. Add remaining ingredients and mix until combined. Scoop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes until light brown.
