~ Recipe of the Week ~

* Jamie's Chocolate Chip Cookies *

Do you LOVE chocolate chip cookies? Well, here is the BEST chocolate chip cookie dough recipe I have come across yet!! I can't take credit for this recipe, but I would like to give a shoutout to one of my dance students -- Jamie L. (and her mom for copying down the recipe for me!) -- who shared these delicious delights with us one night at dance. I was finally able to make these yummy cookies with my son today, and so of course I HAD to share it as my "Recipe of the Week" this week!! Believe me when I say, you can't eat just one, I PROMISE!!!! ENJOY!!!

Preparation and Cook Time: 20 minutes
Makes approximately: 48 cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 - 12 oz bags of chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1) In a large mixing bowl, cream together the shortening and brown sugar.
2) Add the 2 eggs and vanilla, and mix well.
3) In a separate small dish or cup, dissolve the baking soda in 1 tablespoon of hot water; then add it to cookie dough mixture.
4) Add salt and flour and mix ingredients together.
5) Finally, mix in the chocolate chips.
6) On a greased cookie sheet, scoop out cookie dough (approximately 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie) onto the cookie sheet -- fitting about 12 cookies depending on cookie sheet size.
7) Bake the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes or until the bottom of the cookies are slightly browned and the insides are thoroughly cooked.
8) Remove cookies from oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack.

Serve with a nice, cold glass of milk and ENJOY!!!!
