This a recipe that has three of your favorite cookies in one cookie. I entered this cookie in the fair years ago and won best in class. The kids like it because you can change what you put in it to suit what they like. This a fun one to make with the kids.
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, Crisco and margarine; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; blend well. Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix well.
2. Divide dough into three separate bowls. Put a little more into one bowl than the other two as you won,t be adding as much to it.
3. Add melted chocolate to bowl with most dough; mix well leaving no original dough showing.
4. Add chocolate chips to another bowl; mix well.
Add peanut butter to last bowl, mix well.
Cover and put in refrigerator for 1 hour so that it will be easier to handle.
Cover cookie sheets with parchment paper. Pinch off a piece of dough a little smaller than a walnut; roll into a ball and place on the paper. Do the same for the rest of the dough placing each piece next to each other.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to finish cooling.
Tip: You can use different ingredients such as: mini m & m's, peanut butter chips, raisins, butterscotch chips, drained pineapple, chopped apple and the list goes on and on. Make it your own.
