What is better then nice warm cookies and a cold glass of milk . Here are two of my favorite recipes that I have been using for over forty years. Hope you enjoy them as much as my family and I have .
OATMEAL COOKIES !
Blend together in large bowl – 1-1/2 Cups shortening , 1-1/2 Cups brown sugar , 3 – eggs – 3 tablespoons water , 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla .
Mix together 2-1/4 Cups flour , 1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda , 1-1/2 teaspoons salt 4-1/2 Cups of rolled oats .
Optional ingredients are: 1 – cup of either nuts or coconut . Changes them up a little. The coconut is very delicious , I’m a coconut fan . On occasion , I have put in dried cranberries or raisins . That to has been a hit around my house.
Mix the dry in with the wet ingredients blend well . I then put the cookie dough into the fridge for about a hour it lets it set up . You do not have to do this if you are in a hurry . Its just something I do.
Preheat your oven to 375 degree ‘s and on a greased cookie sheet or a cookie sheet with parchment paper spoon the batter on . Put into the oven and cook 12-15 minutes depending on your oven or how large you make your cookies. When done and golden brown remove from the oven and cool on a cookie rack. This recipe should yield about 3 dozen cookies
RECIPE NUMBER TWO! CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES !
Blend together in a large bowl – 1 half Cup brown sugar , 1 quarter Cup white sugar , 1 half Cup shortening , 1 egg , 1 teaspoon vanilla
In a smaller bowl blend together – 1 cup and 2 tablespoons flour , 1 half teaspoon baking soda , 1 half teaspoon salt , 1 half package of chocolate chips , white or brown your choice or some of both .
Then mix the dry ingredients in with the wet , blending it well .
You can also add nuts or raisins to this recipe this to is optional.
Again I let my cookie dough sit in the fridge to set up. I preheat my oven to 375 degree’s . Place my dough on a greased cookie sheet or with parchment paper . Cook 12-15 minutes until golden brown remove from the oven and cool on a rack. This recipe will yield about a dozen cookies .
So after all that hard work take out your nice cold milk pour yourself a big glass , grab a couple cookies and a good book and have a break .
