At my Card Buffet in August I made these cookies and lots of you asked me for the recipe. It's an old Family Favourite, I hope they become your favourites too! I usually make them into Chocolate Chips because those are the most popular around here
Family Favourite Cookies
1/2 cup Butter
1/2 cup Shortening
3/4 cup Brown sugar
3/4 cup White sugar
1 Tsp. Baking Soda in 1 tsp hot water
1 Tsp. Vanilla
2 1/4 cups Flour
Cream butters and sugars. (I always use Imperial Margarine squares instead of butter & shortening.) Add eggs, baking soda/hot water and vanilla. Stir in flour.
Bake @ 350 for 8 - 10 minutes on greased or parchment paper lined cookie sheets.
*For Chocolate Chips cookies add 1 cup chocolate chips(or more!)
*Same for Butterscotch Chips
*For Peanut Butter add 1/2 cup Peanut butter (chunky or smooth) and press with fork tines for decoration.
Hope you love them as much as we do! Enjoy!
