Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies


     A Food Friday Recipe:  Family favorite!!

  “Tis the season for baking cookies!”  (Well not for me usually.  I let my sister do that since she is a way better baker than I could ever be.)  But this is one recipe I never go wrong with.  

Mom’s Chocolate Chip Cookies.  (Makes a very light cookie)

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup salad oil, 1 cup (real) butter melted, 2 eggs, and 2 tsp (real) vanilla.  Mix well.
  3. Sift in 4 cups flour, 2 tsp baking soda, 4 tsp cream of tartar, and 1 tsp salt.  (I find it easier to sift in one cup of flour at a time, including part of the soda, tartar and salt.  This way you don’t get that salty, soda taste in the cookie)
  4. Stir in one bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
  5. Drop by tablespoon on a cookie sheet.  (I have terrible cookie sheets, so I usually line them with parchment paper or wax paper).
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  7. Place on Parchment paper to cool.
  8. Enjoy!
