Oh So Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is the finished product. These cookies are delicious! And to think The Kid did it all by herself...I'm so proud! Of course, after sampling the dough pre-baking there inevitably seems to be that leftover amount that isn't quite enough for a whole pan, but too much to just throw away. What to do, what to do...oh I know, let's make a giant cookie for the baker!
Here's the recipe :)
Chocolate Chip Cookies
2-1/4 cups leveled flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup margarine, softened
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1 4-oz pkg instant vanilla pudding (we used sugar-free)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 eggs, beaten
1 12-oz bag chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
Combine flour and baking soda, set aside. In a large bowl beat brown sugar, sugar, butter, shortening, pudding mix, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix until well blended.
Add eggs and mix well. Beat in flour mixture.
Stir in chocolate and butterscotch chips.
Drop by rounded teaspoonful and bake 10 minutes at 350. Don't forget to make your BIG cookie!
