Sunday June 9, 2013 - 2 days before we add a puppy to our family. I decided to make some cookies, but I am not baking the whole batch. My problem is always that I love the cookies warm...so I followed the recipe on the back of the Kirkland Chocolate Chip bag and it was easy. I baked 8 and put the remaining dough in the fridge for later. BTW -the dough tasted amazing!
I will say that they are pretty good. I wanted to find an easier way to locate my recipes. I have saved so many that when I want a specific one I can't find it. I am looking at 3 3in. binders full and then a box full in the other room. Too many recipes...too little time (or money - haha).
Here is the recipe on the back of the bag of the Kirkland bag -
Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 C shortening & butter mixed (1/2 cup butter, fill the balance of the cup with shortening)
1/2 C granulated sugar
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 2/3 C all-purpose flour
1 C Kirkland Signature Chocolate Chips
Preheat oven 375°F. combine shortening, butter, sugars, egg, and vanilla in a medium size bowl. Mix thoroughly with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add baking soda and salt. Slowly add flour until thoroughly blended. Turn off mixer and fold in Kirkland Chocolate chips with a spatula.
Drop by spoonfuls onto cushion-air baking sheets. Bake at 375°F for 8-10 min. For a softer chewier cookie, bake until the edges and peaks are slightly golden brown. Recipe courtesy of Kim Walior Costco Wholesale Buyer.
