Heh….guess who forgot her password? Good thing I had that epiphany and it came back to me. “It’s like lightning just struck my brain!” <—name that movie (without googling!!) and get a kajillion cool points!
Okeedokee…This is my favorite cookie recipe. I’ve made these so many times I have the recipe memorized. If I have a party to go to, I normally take these and there usually aren’t any left on the plate. AND I get lots of compliments, besides…I’d like to think it’s because I’m such a swell baker…but really, it’s just a great and easy recipe. If they don’t turn out spectacularly, it’s not the recipe; it’s…(sorry)…you or the ingredients…I’ll bet it’s the ingredients. But like they say in Ratatouille…”Anyone can cook!” so let’s think optimistically, k?
3 doz. 3 in. cookies, 9-11 min. @ 375 degrees
3 cups flour 1/2 cup oil 1/2 oleo (margarine/butter) 1 cup white sugar 3/4 cup brown sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs 3 cups flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 cup chocolate chips …..mmmmmm
Beat oleo, oil, sugars, and vanilla until creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add dry ingredients ( I mix these together in a separate bowl to avoid nasty baking soda or salt chunks in the cookies). Stir in chips. Eat a lot of cookie dough. Shape into small slightly flattened spheres and bake. Eat a lot of cookies.
