Jordin's chocolate chip cookies

Recently, I received the first issue of the 'Paths of Peace' newsletter I subscribed to. I would like to thank Jordin from 'Paths of Peace' for taking the time to compile it. Starting from the second issue, Jordin decided to create a separate newsletter blog.

Among other things, Jordin included in her first newsletter her favorite recipe of chocolate chip cookies. It was the best I ever tried (see picture below), thanks, Jordin!

And here's the fabulous recipe:

2\3 c. shortening

1\2 c. sugar

1\2 c. brown sugar 1 egg

1 t. vanilla

1 1\2 c. all-purpose flour

1\2 t. baking soda

1\2 t. salt

1 pkg. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix shortening, sugars, egg and vanilla thoroughly. Measure flour by dipping/leveling/pouring. Blend dry ingredients; stir in chocolate chips. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls 2 " apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool before removing from baking sheet. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies.

Note: I didn't have brown sugar, so I just used 1 cup of sugar, they were still excellent. I wasn't sure about the chocolate chips either (how much I should use exactly), so I put in as much as I thought would be good - and it was good.

I'm so glad you liked the recipe! :D

I think I use a little more chocolate chips in mine...we like the eat cookies with our chocolate chips! ;)

They look great--and no, I didn't mind you sharing the recipe at all.

Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite!! Of course I'm slightly predjudiced to my own recipe. lol :) If you want, I could give it to you and you could try it as well if you want. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us-I will definitely try it! I've never made chocolate chip cookies with shortening before.

Oh yummy!! We'll have to try these sometime soon - I have to replenish my baking cupboard first though, we're out of flour and sugar!

I love fall - as soon as the weather turns cool I like to begin baking goodies and having hot cocoa or another warm drink with our read aloud time during lessons everyday. :) Yesterday was "Poetry" day - so we drank tea while I read out loud from T. S. Eliot's cat poetry. Looking at these cookies makes me think we should add them to our read aloud times as well -- maybe hot from the oven! :)

Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Oh my goodness! Those look amazing! Unfortunately, I am unable to have dairy, sugar, sweetners, or refined carbohydrates, so i have had to come up with cookies that don't contain these wonderful foods...hmmm...I think i might actually put it in my blog!

Thanks for the comment on my site! it is wonderful to know that there are such godly ladies out there and I am so blessed to have found your blog! I enjoy reading it very much!

God Bless!

Those look so yummy. I read that you don't eat meat. That's really cool. We eat a lot of meatless meals for health & frugality. Do you think you will ever post some meal ideas and recipies for meatless meals?

Anna S said...

Coupon addict,

Yes, I'm vegetarian and really happy with that. I do have some recipes and meal idea in my 'kitchen' section, posted a way back, but I sure would like to add more, as time allows, and maybe share my typical daily menu.

I add a teaspoon of honey to my chocolate chip cookies, and it makes them really delicious and chewy.

Mmm. Those look really good! Hi. *wave* You probably don't know who I am,so I shall introduce myself. :) I am Ana's (anas-corner.blogspot.com) sister. She has told me so much about your blog and how wonderful it is and I figured I should check it out being that, from what I hear, we are quite like minded. Continue to look to Christ for all your needs.
