good tasting things.

i like to bake. so clearly i jumped at the chance to fix a dessert for family dinner tomorrow at anthro. these are the tastiest morsels around. i inherited this recipe from my mom and it’s been a favorite since i was pint-sized, (she used to make half a batch without chocolate chips for me, since i didn’t like chocolate until i was about 15). they are light and not too sweet and melt in your mouth.

cream cheese chocolate chip cookies:

1 cup butter
1 cup crisco
8 oz. regular cream cheese
4 eggs
2 cups sugar
4 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour
2 tsp salt
12 oz. chocolate chips

preheat oven to °350. beat together softened butter, crisco, cream cheese, eggs, sugar, and vanilla. just until smooth. slowly mix in flour and salt. then fold in chocolate chips. spoon into 1″ balls, on an ungreased cookie sheet, and bake for 10-12 minutes.

enjoy!
