Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookies
We all have a favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that is so easy and melt in your mouth good.
This is not it.
I mean it's definitely delicious but it has a few more ingredients than your basic CC Cookie recipe. But it's really worth it. Trust me. With the nutmeg and cinnamon in it, you will not be able to stop eating the dough.
Chocolate Chip Supreme Cookies (from Southern Living)
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 (3.4-ounce) package vanilla instant pudding mix
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tap ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 (12-ounce) package semisweet chocolate morsels (I used milk chocolate)
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans (I only used 1 cup - the kids aren't nuts about nuts)
1 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
Beat shortening and butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, beating until blended. Add pudding mix and vanilla; beat until blended.
Combine flour and next 4 ingredients. Gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in morsels, chopped pecans and oats.
Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls; place on lightly greased baking sheets, and press to 1-inch thickness.
Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies to wire racks to cool.
Yield: 3 dozen (I actually got 4 dozen of the size in the picture)
