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

Step-By-Step

1Cream together sugars, eggs, butter, shortening, and vanilla. Be careful to not over mix.

2Mix together flour and baking soda. Stir in to your sugar mixture.

3Refrigerate dough for at least 30 minutes.

4Take 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.

5Place on to an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes for chewy cookies.

6Remove your cookies from the oven. Sprinkle a dusting of white sugar to the top of your cookies. Leave on the pan until just cooled.
