Varieties of Chips

There are so many varieties of chocolate chips to choose from in the store now days.With or without milk, this chocolate chip cookie is one that will please your family. The combination of butter and shortening creates a soft and chewy cookie. I have also made these with many other chip flavors, another one that I like is cherry chip and vanilla chip. You should try it sometime. I think that you will make this your favorite chocolate chip cookie if you do.

Scooping Cookies

When I was growing up, we only used two teaspoons to drop the cookie dough on the cookie sheet. One to scoop and one to scrape the dough off the spoon. Now I use a scoop like this and it makes quick work out of filling the baking sheet. Additionally, the size of the cookie dough rounds is fairly even and helps all the cookies bake at the same time.

School Favorite Too

These cookies have been made for a variety of fund raisers for our school. They always sell out fast. I mean, who doesn’t like a great tasting chocolate chip cookie or one of the other varieties of chips that you dream up. This same recipe can be made using vanilla and cherry chips-delicious. Or try using butterscotch and chocolate chips for a richer flavor. I have not tried the toffee chips in this cookie yet, but I bet that would be good too. Be creative with this one.
