Dear readers here is the much asked for recipe for the cookies I baked on Saturday & posted on Instagram.
Amish Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups of brown sugar
2 cups of white sugar
2 teaspoons of salt
2 cups of half margarine & shortening ( I use Trex for my English readers)
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
4 teaspoons of baking soda
4 teaspoons of cream of tartar
7 cups of flour (plain)
2 to 3 packets of chocolate chips ( I used dark chocolate chips & also chopped up a bar of dark chocolate)
Mix together in order given & drop by a large teaspoon full onto a greased sheet.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes at 375o
I put one third into a cake tin & the other two thirds I froze ready for picnics.
