“My friend Helen said to come prepared to eat cookies. Well…I’m ready!”

Since Helen has invited so many “friends” to join us I guess we had better prepare for a larger crowd this month!!

And what better way than with one LARGE COOKIE!

COOKIE CAKE

1 cup crisco

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 tea baking soda

1/2 tea salt

1 package (12 ounces) chocolate chips (I like Hershey’s Best!)

Heat oven to 375.  Mix shortening, sugars and egg.  Stir in flour, baking soda and salt (dough will be stiff).  Stir in chocolate chips.

Spray round aluminum pan lightly with baking spray.  Place entire chocolate chip mixture in center of pan and begin to flatten/press evenly, until dough is within 1/2 inch of edge(s). (Dough will spread to edge during baking.)

*Recipe can also be made for individual medium-size cookies. Drop dough instead by rounded teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake until light brown, 8 to 10 minutes. (Centers will be soft.)

Makes 1 round cookie-cake

0r

6 dozen medium-size chocolate chip cookies.

“Wait, so you mean if someone ‘dresses up’ they can expect bigger cookies to be served?”

“If so, I sure do hope this will work!!”
