Chocolate Chip Cookies

Melissa Snow


These aren't the prettiest cookies in the world, but I've been eating these cookies since I was about 10. I love the cinnamon that is added to these!

Thanks to Dad for sharing this recipe with me. Enjoy!

How to Make Chocolate Chip Cookies


  1. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, shortening, granulated sugar and brown sugar on high speed until very light and fluffy(about 5 min). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla and lemon juice.
  2. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and oats. Gradually add to butter mixture blending thoroughly. Stir in chocolate and butterscotch chips and walnuts.
  3. Use a scant 1/4 cup of dough for each cookie. Drop dough onto lightly greased baking sheets, spacing cookies about 3 inches apart. For soft cookies, bake in a 325 degree oven for 17 10 19 minutes or until a light golden brown; for crisp cookies, bake in a 350 degree oven for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Transfer to racks and let cool. Store in an airtight container.
