Homemade cookies

My husband asked me the other night if I would make cookies. I wasn't feeling baking, so I told him I would help him make them. He wanted to make peanut butter cookies, but with my mom's chocolate chip cookie recipe. I didn't think this would work, until he pulled out some peanut butter chips. ah, now I understand.

Delicious Cookies

1 c shortening
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 c flour
2 c chocolate chips (** We used Peanut Butter Chips **)

Thoroughly cream shortening and sugars, add eggs and vanilla. Beat well and add dry ingredients. Add chips and nuts (optional). Place on cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-13 minutes

Well, I think Chuck should always be the one to make cookies because he stirs them so well! :D I envy my mom though. She has one of those little cookie scoopers so that she can scoop a tiny bit amount in a perfect cookie shape. Mine never come out in uniform sizes and I like the smaller size too. But, here they are; they were delicious.

Side blurb. My little brother recently turned 17 and I mod podge a wood frame and put in a picture of him and my son for his birthday. Just thought I would share how it turned out.


  1. Those cookies look incredible! And I love the frame.

  2. The cookies look Delish! I love how the frame turned out.

    I LOVE Mod Podge, but have yet to try a picture frame...I will one of these days though!!!
