According to ccunning's write-up in HOT DAMN!: Drinking, Debauchery, and Dastardly Deeds (and now many from other gathering nodes), I make a mean cookie. People, you can too! It's easy!

Becca's Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe:



  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Mix shortening, butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Stir in remaining ingredients
  4. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls two inches apart onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown
  6. Cool slightly before removing from baking sheet

That's it people! You can do it!

*If you are making multiple batches, it is easier to do them separately. The ingredients mix in better.

* The trick is all of the flour. Most recipes call for 3 cups of flour at the most. The extra flour makes a rounder softer cookie. But, if you find you have added too much flour (is that possible?) and your dough is dry, just add some milk to the dough!
