Bushel of Cookies

This recipe is an old one, my mom would make these all the time when I was growing up.  I have no idea who she got the recipe from, but the name of the recipe is “Bushel of Cookies”.  This is a traditional chocolate chip cookie recipe, but it supposedly makes 96 cookies!  I must make them too big, because I never get that many out of a batch, but it is a big batch with 5 cups of flour in it!  And out of all the chocolate chip cookie recipes I’ve ever made, this is by far the best dough to eat raw.  Yummy!  Of course, there are raw eggs in it, so eat at your own risk.  Me, I risk it all every time I make these and eat half the dough before it even makes it to the pan.  Enjoy!

Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1 c. butter, room temp

1 c. Crisco (I used butter flavor)

1 1/2 c. brown sugar

1 1/2 c. white sugar

4 eggs

2 t. vanilla

5 c. flour

1 t. salt

2 t. soda

1 bag chocolate chps

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Cream together butter, Crisco, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs and vanilla.  Stir til light and fluffy,  (I used my stand up mixer).  Add flour, salt and soda into the creamed mixture.  Add chocolate chips.  Drop by teaspoon full onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 8-9 minutes or until lightly brown.  Enjoy!
