“This is a no-frills kind of cookie recipe that I have had for years. I am unsure where it originated. I do sometimes add in 1/2 cup chopped nuts or 1/2 cup baking chips to change it up a bit, but they are good on their own. NOTE: The original recipe called for 1/2 cup butter & 1/2 cup shortening, but I now use I cup butter (or margarine).”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350*. Cream the butter and brown sugar.
  2. Add in the eggs and vanilla.
  3. Mix together the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt) and combine with the creamed mixture. Mix well.
  4. Stir in nuts or baking chips if you are using.
  5. Drop by teaspoons on a cookie sheet. ( I personally prefer to chill my dough-for easier handling & roll teaspoons into balls, flattening slightly with a glass dipped in sugar).
  6. Bake @ 350* for 8-10 minutes.
