     Loaded Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

   

I have made these cookies for over 40 years!  They are so versatile because you can add

 

 

additional ingredients to suit your taste.  

Ingredients* 

  ¾ cup shortening

•  1½ cups of packed brown sugar (I prefer light brown)

•  1 egg

•  ¼ cup water

•  1 tsp of a good vanilla extract or Amaretto

 

•  1 cup flour, sifted

•  ½ cup dry milk

•  1 tsp sea salt

•  ½ tsp baking soda

•  2 cups rolled oats, uncooked

•  1 cup wheat germ

•  ½ cupchocolate chips (up to ¾ cup)

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Instructions

1.  In a medium bowl, place shortening, sugar, egg, water and vanilla; beat thoroughly until well

 

 

    mixed.  In a sifter, place flour, dry milk, salt and soda; sift over the wet mixture.  Mix well; blend in oats,

 

 

    wheat germ and chocolate chips.  Add any additional ingredients of your choice from below.

 

 

2.  Drop by small level scoops onto a prepared baking sheet.  Bake for 12 to 14 minutes until golden.  It may

 

 

     take longer depending on the ingredients. Be careful not to over brown (check bottoms).

    *Ingredients you can add (¾ cup total):

    Chopped pecans, walnuts, macadamias, hazelnuts, etc

    Raisins
