I've tried a lot of chocolate chip recipes in my life. Ahem. A LOT!!! This one was given to me by my friend Carmonie Russell. It is the blue ribbon winner in my book. It makes a h-u-g-e batch which we use a couple of dozen at a time. I refrigerate the rest and we bake them fresh every couple of nights for a bed time snack. Enjoy with a tall glass of Reed's Dairy milk. ***I admit, the ink is still wet on my New Year's Resolution to lose some weight. But hey, they are that good!
1 pound butter (I use 1 cup butter plus 1 cup of butter flavored Crisco)
3/4 C. white sugar
2 C. brown sugar
2 T. vanilla
Beat together well. In another bowl, mix and then add:
6 C. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
1 1/2 t. soda
1 pkg. chocolate chips
Bake @ 350 for 10-12 minutes. (My oven seems slower, so 355* did better)
More good news: The Taggarts joyfully announce the upcoming arrival of Cafe Rio to Idaho Falls! Coming soon to the new building behind Texas Roadhouse! Life is good.
