Baking My Way: Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Just a great classic cookie. It's a great go to cookie. This used to be the only thing that I would make (easy, quick and simple) so I think it's funny that I have to bake it on a challenge that is supposed to make me bake different things. 

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 shortening
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chunks
1/2 chopped nuts or sunflower seeds


Heat oven to 375

In a bowl combine sugars, shortening and butter, beat until light and fluffy.

Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.

Add flour, baking soda and salt; mix well.

Stir in chocolate chunks and nuts/seeds.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons 3 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool 1 minute, remove from cookie sheets.

Check out all the link parties where I share my recipes (at the bottom of my blog!)
