    Default making chocolate chip cooks with the "grands"

    i had thekids over today, son & their mother (who is his significant
    other) both work the same shift at the restaurant on wednesdays.
    today alyssa (age 8) and i made the king arthur flour recipe. we left
    out the almond extract, and used the ralph's brand flour, because
    that's what we had in the house. raymond (age 8) chose to watch the
    telly, and eat the cookies. they are now eating the warm cookies
    with cold chocolate milk.

    * 2/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
    * 2/3 cup granulated sugar
    * 1/2 cup unsalted butter, right from the fridge, or at room
    temperature
    * 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
    * 1 teaspoon vinegar, cider or white
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 large egg
    * 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    * 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

    * 5 ounces light brown sugar, firmly packed
    * 4 5/8 ounces granulated sugar
    * 1 stick, 4 ounces unsalted butter, right from the fridge, or at
    room temperature
    * 3 1/2 ounces vegetable shortening
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    * 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
    * 1 teaspoon vinegar, cider or white
    * 1 teaspoon baking soda
    * 1 large egg
    * 8 1/2 ounces King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
    * 12 ounces semisweet chocolate chips

    Directions

    Preheat the oven to 375F. Lightly grease (or line with parchment) two
    baking sheets.

    1) In a large bowl, combine the sugars, butter, shortening, salt,
    vanilla and almond extracts, vinegar, and baking soda, beating until
    smooth and creamy.

    2) Beat in the egg, again beating till smooth. Scrape the bottom and
    sides of the bowl with a spatula to make sure everything is thoroughly
    combined.

    3) Mix in the flour, then the chips.

    4) Use a spoon (or a tablespoon cookie scoop) to scoop 1 1/4" balls of
    dough onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving 2" between them on all
    sides; they'll spread.

    5) Bake the cookies for 11 to 12 minutes, till their edges are
    chestnut brown and their tops are light golden brown, almost blonde.
    Remove them from the oven, and cool on the pan till they've set enough
    to move without breaking. Repeat with the remaining dough.

    Yield: 32 cookies

    You are a good Grandma, I hope the grandchildren appreciate you. If I
    have grandchildren, I hope I will do the same.

    Sounds like a great day with the kids! Cooking with kids is so important for their development... teaches math skills, chemistry, physics, social skills and most importantly just good old fashioned bonding!
