Braden Family Cookbook
CHUCK'S D.F.C.C.C. 1994 (Darn Fine Chocolate Chip Cookies 1994)
(1994 Christmas gift to family & friends)
1 cup butter flavored Crisco 2 tbsp. water
1 cup white sugar 1 packed cup brown sugar
Add & cream: 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla
Take 2 ½ cups of oatmeal - put small amounts in a blender; blend until it turns to powder - set aside
Mix: Oatmeal 2 cups flour
½ tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
Combine dry ingredients with creamed ingredients.
Add 1 12-oz bag of chocolate chips . . . mix in
Finely grate a 4-oz plain Hershey chocolate bar into the dough . . . mix in.
Make tablespoon size cookies, roll into balls between hands, put on an ungreased cookie sheet (leave about 1.6453" between the balls) in a 375-degree oven for 10-12 minutes (they are a little soft when they come out of the oven . . . so must cool on cookie sheet for 7 - 8 minutes before being removed to a wire rack)
Makes about 5 dozen cookies. Don't be clever and use butter instead of the butter flavored Crisco. While baking the cookies I suggest a simple Chablis, when eating the cookies (either warm or room temperature) chilled cow juice is usually the beverage of choice.
