People know me for these cookies. ;-) I've been making them for years and they have always been a big hit whenever we take them to a get together.
This time I made them with some peanut butter chips and a handful of M&M's that we had left. Normally I make them with chocolate, but really they are good with any kind of chip you want. This is a big batch, but I freeze what doesn't fit in the cookie jar, so we have them handy.
Rachel's Chocolate Chip Cookies
3 c. white sugar
2 c. shorting
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. salt
4 tsp. baking soda
4 tsp. cream of tartar
7 c. flour
1 pkg. semi sweet chocolate chips
Cream sugar, shorting, eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and then mix everything thoroughly.
Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
I like mine slightly underdone, so they are a little gooey on the inside, to do so, take them out just before the top browns.
