Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies
Rose Cottage Guest House, Tacoma, WA
"This has been my secret recipe for over 30 years; our guests enjoy
these cookies each time they visit."
Total preparation time: 20 minutes
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
3 cups flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup regular rolled oats
3 cups chocolate chips (24 oz.)
2 cups chopped walnuts or halved macadamia nuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixer bowl, beat together on medium
speed, the shortening, margarine, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until
thoroughly combined, about 5 minutes. On low speed, beat in the eggs, one at
a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla and lemon
On wax paper, mix the flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and oats. Beat dry
ingredients into the creamed mixture until well combined; mix in chocolate
pieces and nuts.
For each cookie, drop a scant 1/4 cup dough on parchment-lined baking
sheets, about 3 inches apart. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until a golden
brown. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies. Add a cup of raisins also if you wish.
