Too hot to Touch

These are fresh out of the oven...

First dozen

Varying sizes, oven pre-heat at 375 F.

Now the kitchen...

Gotta do dishes before we are able to lay out the dough :(

Batter's done kitty can't have none

All that's left is adding the chocolate chips!

Adding the flour

Three cups takes a while to mix, you realize.


I caught the kitten before she got to the batter

Seen here seconds before..

Becoming Batter

We're getting close:

Eggs Vanilla Baking Soda Salt

Whipping this with a fork before mixing with the sugar helps create the caking

Fully Blended

Margarine, shortening, brown sugar, sugar, properly blended:

Blending Process

A closer look, halfway blended:

Energies and Buttery Scents

Here's stage two - see the familiar begging?

Gar knows margarine container by sight.

Soon the kitten will come.

Chocolate Chip Cookies


1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
2/3rds Cup Shortening
2/3rds Cup Margarine

Mix until most of the lumps are gone (patience pays off in better cookie)

2 Eggs
2 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt

Mix thoroughly, with fork, then fold into the sugar, shortening, and margarine

Add 3 Cups flour

Mix vigorously, until all the flour is part of the batter

Add 1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Split into tablespoon-sized balls

Bake 375 for 10 to 12 minutes (altitude determines cook time)
