Another blog sans pictures. I'm bad at this.
A couple weeks ago at the grocery store, best friend snuck 2 bags of Nestle dark-chocolate-and-mint chips into the cart. He knows me so well. :) (The Nestle brand is a few cents cheaper than the Andes mint chips.)
This weekend, we whipped up some cookies.
1/3 cup of butter
1/3 cup of shortening
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 teasp of vanilla
1 1/2 cups of flour.
Mix the sugars, butter, and shortening. Once that is well mixed throw in the eggs and the vanilla. Gradually add the flour, mixing well. Once everything is mixed in, toss in as many chocolate chips as you want. We put in almost an entire bag...technically I think most recipes call for 2/3 cup.
Cook at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
My favorite thing about these cookies is that they are super easy to make, and they don't require getting a mixer out. I just use a fork and a wooden spoon.
