Chocolate Chip Cookies

C’mon! Who doesn’t like good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies?

This recipe also from the North Dakota cookbook.

1 C shortening or softened butter

3/4 C white sugar

3/4 C brown sugar (packed)

2 eggs

1 tsp hot water

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 1/2 C flour

2 C quick cooking oats

1 C chopped nuts, if desired

12 oz pkg semi-sweet chocolate chips

Blend sugars and shortening. Blend in eggs. Add soda, salt, vanilla, and hot water. Blend in flour, then oatmeal, then chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 350°. Roll dough into walnut sized balls, and flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes.

If you use butter, the cookies will be moister. Shortening will make them crisper.
