Best -Ever Holiday Cookies
My daughter made these. I think these are her favorites. It is a basic Chocolate chip recipe but for the holiday we tweaked it a little.
Best-Ever Holiday Chip Cookies
1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 teaspoon water
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 oz of chocolate chucks
6oz of Nestle Swirled Holiday chips.
Cream shortening in large mixing bowl. Gradually add Sugars beating well.
Add eggs , vanilla and water; beat well
Combine flour , soda and salt, sift together. Add to Creamed mixture, mix well.
Fold in chocolate and chips.
Drop by tablespoon onto lightly greased cookie sheets. about 2 inches apart.
bake at 350 degrease Fahrenheit oven for 12 minutes. remove for over let cool on sheet for about 1 minute. Remove and continue to cool on wire rack.
It's hard to not eat them warm. but they are really good when completely cooled.
