I wanted to bake tonight. Cookies sounded like a great idea. We were out of chocolate chips, and I didn't want your average sugar cookie. So - these sweet, soft & chewy cookies were created! They were a big hit with the hubby & kids.

Serves:

makes about 2 dozen cookies

Ingredients

3 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
10 Tbsp
butter, softened
2/3 c
shortening
1 c
white sugar
1 c
packed brown sugar
2
eggs
1 Tbsp
vanilla
extra white sugar for dusting

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream together sugars, eggs, butter, shortening, and vanilla. Be careful to not over mix.
2
Mix together flour and baking soda. Stir in to your sugar mixture.
3
Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.
4
Take golf-ball size portions of dough, and shape into about 4" round circles. The dough will hold it's shape for the most part. It will spread a bit while baking.
5
Place on to an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes for chewy cookies.
6
Remove your cookies from the oven. Sprinkle a dusting of white sugar to the top of your cookies. Leave on the pan until just cooled.
