    Roxygirl in Colorado's Note:

    These cookies have been served for over 75 years in the quiet village of Orkney Springs, VA. We have stayed in this retreat center called Shrine Mont where people come for rest, devotion, and fellowship. A couple of things set these cookies apart: butter and shortening ensure a thick cookie, soft in the middle, with a touch of almond extract.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 24



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Note: The recipe initially calls for 2 1/2 cups flour, but with the added note if you want them more softer and rounder cookie to add 1/4 cup flour. I add the 1/4 cup making it 2 3/4 cups total.
    2. 2
      Cream shortening, butter, sugars, then eggs and vanilla and almond extracts.
    3. 3
      Blend dry ingredients and add to mixture.
    4. 4
      Stir in Chocolate chips.
    5. 5
      Drop by large tablespoons (I use cookie scoop) onto ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 2-inches room in between to allow cookies to spread. I press down lightly with a measuring cup to bake more uniform cookies).
    6. 6
      Bake at 375° for 10 minutes until lightly brown.
    7. 7
      Makes 2-3 dozen cookies depending on size.

      Beautiful. The ones I made looked nothing like the picture but they were sooooo good. Thanks Roxygirl! Note: I used at least 1/4 cup less of each of the sugars, with the huge amount of choc chips that much sugar isn't needed. I also had less choc chips (coz I ran out) but there were still plenty in the cookies.

      This Chocolate Chip Cookie is a winner for my Cookie Monsters... This is the third time I've made them and I made a double batch only to have them disappear in record time. My house is the house where all the kids come after school, and all I heard was how "awesome" they were . This will definitely be a regular. Don't think I'll have a choice. lol I followed the recipe and used the 2 3/4 cups. of flour version and did refrigerate.

      These were a bit salty for me... not sure why, maybe it was because I doubled it... ??? BUT, they are very good with the addition of kisses and chocolate chips, so next time I will make sure they have a bit of chocolate in every bite. ;)
