I have not tried this one yet...... but I have a bunch of chocolate chips in the fridge and plan to make a few batches of choc chip cookies this weekend!

Basic Cookie Mix

8 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3 cups vegetable shortening

In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, salt and baking soda until well blended. With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed. Put in a large airtight container. Label and store in a cool, dry place for up to 12 weeks. Makes aboout 16 cups of Basic Cookie Mix.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 tsp vanilla
