Since I make many items for our family reunion most years, this is a cookie recipe that I came up with to make a couple of varieties of cookies. It is great when you are in a hurry, and if you do not want it to get ransid, store it in gallon bags in the freezer and take out what you need when you need it. It is suppose to last up to 6 months if kept in an air tight container. But I store mine in the freezer as a precaution. They are great cookies and I have quite a few chocolate chip cookie recipes in my collection. Not sure but I may have gotten this recipe from Taste of Home years ago.
Thourgly combine dry ingredients, cut in shortening until crumbly. Store in an air tight container in a cool dry place, up to 6 months.
