I LOVE these cookies! If you don't oven cook them they are the softest sweetest, melt in your mouth goodness! You might think you'd taste the yogurt and that would turn you off from these cookies but you don't notice it at all. It just adds to the softness of the cookie which is alright by me! I think these are a must try! I think they would also be good with chocolate covered raisins.
I give these a 5! They are some of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! (1 being "I'll never bake them again" and 5 being "They are now one of my favorites")
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup shortening (I used butter)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt (I used vanilla)
1/2 c mini choc chips (I just large ones, I like them better!)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar, butter, and shortening; beat until light and fluffy.
Add yogurt and vanilla; blend well. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonfuls 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-12 min or until light golden brown.
