I'm showing Kennedy how to look for the measurement on the spoon.
Kennedy agrees that this cookie dough tastes pretty darn good.
Ready for baking.
Tasting the fruit of our labor! Yum!!
These are my most favorite cookie! Here's the recipe if you'd like to give them a try.
1 C Shortening*
1 C Brown sugar
1C white sugar
*it's important to use shortening instead of butter. I only had 1/2 C of shortening and substituted butter. The butter melts much faster making the cookies flat. They are still good but more crunchy. If you go by the recipe and use shortening the cookies will be soft and chewy on the inside.
cream together and beat in 2 eggs.
1 tsp Vanilla flavoring
1/2 tsp orange flavoring
1/2 tsp lemon flavoring
4 or 5 drops of butter flavoring (only if you don't use butter flavored shortening)
Sift together and add
2 C flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt.
1 1/2 C Quick Oats
1/3 C coconut (I don't use)
1 C nuts (I use pecans but you can also use walnuts)
1 C dates or raisins (I don't put in my cookies)
Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
Hope you enjoy! Have a good one!
