Basic Cookie Mix

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 1/2 cups granulated sugar
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


3 cups Basic Cookie Mix
3 TBSP milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips
1/2 nuts or coconut (optional)

Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C). Grease baking sheets. In large bowl combine cookie mix, milk, vanilla and egg. Blend well. Stir in chocolate chips, nuts and/or coconut (if desired). Drop by teaspoonfuls onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Makes 2 dozen cookies.

Peanut Butter Cookies

3 cups Basic Cookie Mix
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup chunky-style peanut butter


Peheat oven to 375F (190C). Lightly grease baking sheets. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Blend well. Shape into 1 inch balls. Place on prepared baking sheets and flatten with fork tines. Bake 10-12 minutes, until edges are browned. Makes 30-36 cookies.

Variation:

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies: On baking sheets, press thumb into center of balls. Do not flatten. Fill with grape jelly.
