Like a lot of families, It has become a bit of a tradition in our family to do a lot of baking around the holidays. From cakes to cookies and occasionally pies, we make it all to enjoy with family and friends. Baking really gets me into the spirit of the holidays and is something I’ve always enjoyed doing, even with my mom and grandmother as a child and through my teenage years! Now that E is old enough to participate in the baking of goods, I make sure to include her in the process.
When it comes to one recipe I know that everyone enjoys, it’s hand down chocolate chip cookies! We recently baked some chocolate chip cookies that contain only the best ingredients including Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil which I picked up at my local Stop & Shop. We just about always include Crisco® products in some of out favorite recipes but their products also inspire me to create new baking favorites for all to enjoy! From their cooking oils to sprays, they feature products that could be included in every recipe!
This is a special recipe that I’m sharing with you today because it comes from my Grandma Rita’s kitchen! After she had passed away many years ago, We came across some of her favorite recipes which she kept on note cards in a tin recipe holder. This one was titled “Chocolate Chip Cookies” but as kids, we called them “Grandma’s Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies”. These cookies are perfect for sharing with the ones you love!
- 2 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups cup semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Mix flour, baking soda and salt.
- In a separate bowl, mix the vegetable oil, brown sugar and granulated sugar. After beating the eggs, stir in with the vanilla extract.
- After combining ingredients, mix. Then add the chocolate chips once ingredients are blended. Make sure to save 1⁄4 of the chocolate chips to add on top of the cookies cookies as they cool (It’s not necessary but it makes the cookies look even more delicious!).
- Use a tablespoon or cookie scoop to drop dough onto your cookie sheets.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in oven. Let cool.
