Chocolate Chip Cookies

I tend to make the Classic Crunchy Chocolate Chip cookies from the King Arthur Cookie book; they also have a recipe online which is not either recipe from the book. I replace the butter with more shortening. Sometimes I cut down the recipe from the full 4 ½ dozen to 3 dozen, thus:



Cream together all but the last four ingredients. Add egg. Add baking soda with flour. Add chocolate chips.

Bake 1 T. per cookie on a greased baking sheet at 350° for 12-14 minutes. Cool on a rack.


Substitute nuts for up to half of the chips.
