I could eat these sweet bites all year 'round! This recipe is super kid-friendly, so grab those little ones and mix up a batch of these classic all-American cookies. You'll be celebrating in no time.


In large bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars; beat in egg and vanilla.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture, mixing well.
Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto greased baking sheets.
Bake in 350 oven 8-10 minutes, just until edges
are golden (centers will still be soft).
Remove to wire racks to cool.
