Walmart: Chocolate Chips Clearance!



At my Walmart on Sawdust, in the back where they have their clearance, last night they had a pallet full of Nestle Chocolate Chips, all kinds marked down to $1 a bag! Some of my bags of mini chips rang up at $.50! I make the kids cookies every Sunday afternoon, so for my food storage I figure I need about 52 bags of chips for the year, $1 is a GREAT price! I grabbed 30 bags, there must have been aboout 3,000 left!



For the past few years I have just stuck with the same two recipes for chocolate chip cookies. Either the Nestle Toll House one on the bag, or the Neiman Marcus recipe if I have to make a LOT of cookies. I thought I would try something new yesterday. I picked this one because I thought the combo of shortening and oil was a little different, since I only use real butter for cookies. They turned out really nice I think. They don't spread out, they stay chunky and have a shortbread consistency. The kids and Paul gave two thumbs up.

Does anyone have any favorite Chocolate Chip cookies recipes you can post to share that I can try???

Ingredients:
1 Cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
1 cup vegetable oil
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
4 cups all-purpose flour
4 t. cream of tartar
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used 1 cup Ghirardelli's + 2 cups semi-sweet chips and 1 cup chopped pecans)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I an a medium bowl , beat together white sugar, brown sugar, oil and shortening until smooth. Stir in eggs, and vanilla beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt, stir into sugar mixture. Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by big spoonfuls onto cookies sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 min. cool on sheet and remove.

There is something about shortning instead of butter...here's my recipe that I have stuck to for 25 years!

1 C shortning
3/4 C sugar
3/4 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teas. vanilla
1 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. water
1/2 teas. salt
mix all these ingrediants together then add...
2 C flour (rounded, not heaping)
mix well then add...
12 oz. NESTLE CHOC. CHIPS
mix and drop on foil covered cookie sheet and bake for 8 - 10 minutes at 375. This is going to sound corny, but I use a fork to mix with and even though I have a kitchen aide mixer, I don't use it on my choc. chip cookies, they just don't come out the same. I have people who ask for my recipe all the time say they can't get it to come out the same way mine do...so I have gotten used to trying to explain everything that I do in hopes that it works for them! Enjoy!

I will email you my recipe. It has pudding, so they stay moist. They have a little different texture, but my family loves them.

My favorite also has pudding. You can go to allrecipes.com and type in Award Winning Chocolate Chip Cookies and it is called something like that. SOOOOOOO GOOOD!
I make them for parties and everyone oohs and aahs while eating them!
