Chocolate Chip Chunk Cookies
This is my recipe that won the local Wal*Mart Cookie Bake Off in Napoleon, Ohio this year.
- Serves: 3 persons
- 2cups all-purpose flour
- 1teaspoon baking soda
- ½teaspoon salt
- 1cup shortening
- ½cup white sugar
- ¾cup packed brown sugar
- 2½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1⅓ cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1cup chopped walnuts
Step 1Combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
Step 2In a large bowl , cream the vegetable shortening and the two sugars. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
Step 3Fold in the chocolate chips and the nuts. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours.
Step 4Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Step 5Drop cookie by teaspoonfuls onto shiny lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool. Take out of oven when lightly colored - they will darken after being taken off cookie sheet.
