Whoo Hoo!  I figured this out all by myself.  That's big.  No...That's HUGE.
 I'm such an old smarty pants.  Let's start with an oldie but a goodie.

Chocolate Chip Cookies.  I don't remember where I got this recipe, but it's been with me a long, long time.  It is tried and true, always a winner.  When we lived in St. G the neighborhood kids dubbed these bad boys "Freezer Cookies" because I always had a bag of them in the freezer for after school snacks...or any time kids were at my house snacks.  Friends were a common occurrence at our house and as the kids and their friends grew, the cookies disappeared faster and faster.  The teenage boy bunch made short work of a bag. I've baked  a lot of cookies.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup shortening
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
chocolate chips

Cream together shortening, sugar, brown sugar,and vanilla.  Beat in egg. Mix in flour, soda, and salt. Add chocolate chips and mix. Bake *375 for 8-10 minutes.

#1 DO NOT be scared off by the idea of  "shortening cookies", these are delish--I promise.  #2  I ALWAYS 4 times the recipe--it's just the way it should be done.  #3  I put a bit more flour in than it calls for...maybe a couple tablespoons more ?-ish-?  #4  I don't measure the chocolate chips--just pour them in until it feels right to ya.  #5  I think they are best with both milk and semi sweet chips.
