Chocolate chip cookies, honoring hockey

Chocolate Chip Cookies honoring hockey!

Dear friends, I present yet another chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have dozens (yes, that is with an “s”) in my arsenal because that is the number one request of my husband for a treat. And it is not in me to make the same recipe each time, so I mix it up. These cookies are thick and soft and filled with mini chocolate chips. I used mini chocolate chips because they are what I could get to. Gracie was sleeping in front of the cabinet where I keep the 72 ounce bag of Nestle Chocolate chips, so instead of disturbing her, I opted for another type of chip. Worked out just fine. As you can see, the cookies look, well, like hockey pucks. They do NOT taste like them. 🙂 A few reminders – scoop your flour from your container into your measuring cup so you get the right amount./ If you pour the flour directly in, you can get to much and wind up with a dry cookie. These cookies need to be put in the freezer for an hour or two so they can keep their nice shape. And, preheat your oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking so the oven is the right temerature. (an old trick from the kind LG repairman, Stanley).

  • Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (I ran out of patience, as usual, and used a cheese grater to speed up the process)
  • 1 cup crisco
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 1 tbs cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups plus 3 tbs flour
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
Chocolate Chip cookies are like seeing or talking to old friends – they just make your day!

Directions – Cream butter, Crisco, sugar and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Mix in chips Scoop out 1/4 cups of dough. Freeze dough for at least an hour or two. Preheat oven to 350 degrees for 20 minutes before baking. Line a cookie sheet with nonstick baking liners. Stagger frozen cookies on sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Cool completely. Store in covered container.

Go Sabres!
