saving grace

cookies and bats

these cookies are helping
a lot

actually maybe not so much, it's slowing my running time.

They are the best cookies in the world!
.

I got the recipe from my Laurel Advisor when I was 16.
I knew then that I would want my kids to think that I made the best cookies in the world
.
.
.
...and I do.

Here it is

Kelly Johnson's Chocolate Chip Cookies
(with or without oatmeal, coconut, nuts etc...)

1 cup Crisco (I used butter flavored because I love butter but Crisco makes a much softer cookie)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tbs vanilla
2 eggs
2 cups flour (I did 50/50 with wheat)
1 1/2 cup oatmeal
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 bag chocolate chips
or the following combination
( 1 cup chocolate chips 1 cup butterscotch 1 cup coconut 1 cup pecans or walnuts)

Make the cookies like every cookie recipe you have ever made. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes, I prefer 8 minutes I like them a little gooey. These however were cooked a little longer but they are still soft and chewy.

*Okay, I just realized that I forgot to add 1 tsp of baking powder, but I just made some with out it and they turned out exquisite. So I am beginning to think that baking powder is just a sham. Discuss.

Those sound fabulous. As a cookie connoisseur I will have to give them a try. Have you tried Grandma Hansen's Ranger cookie recipe? I LOVE that one and always add chocolate chips to it.

These sound fabulous. As long as the soda's in there I'm pretty sure you don't need the powder...experiment?
