Toll House Recipe - But 400 degrees - 14 minutes - Two Bowls into One Bowl
Wet Ingredients Mix Together:
- 1 cup shortning, melt
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 eggs
Dry Ingredients - Add to Wet Ingredients:
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
Add to Wet/Dry Mixture:
- 2 cups carrots, frozen, shredded
- 1 cup raisins, 6 snack size boxes
- 2 cups chocolate chips, 1 bag
Then, you start adding your carrots, raisins, and chocolate chips one ingredient at a time. Once everything is mixed together, you take a spoon and scrape up a spoonful of dough and place it on the cookie sheet in an organized fashion. These cookies will spread a bit, so make sure there is space between. A person could add an extra egg, and a little more flour to this, but I did not. The cookies baked well.
You bake them until the top looks dry. Usually, it has a nice, golden brown color on the edges.
Take the pan out of the oven, and cool it for a minute, then, loosen your cookies with a flat spatula. Move the cooling cookies to a cooling rack.
I covered my cooling rack with waxed paper to make the counter have less of a crumbly mess. It sort of solved my crumbs.
The flavor of the cookies is fruity.
I suppose the carrot flavor takes over, plus the raisins are probably fruity.
At any rate, they were or are pretty tasty.
And, maybe they are healthy for me.
