Plain Ole Chocolate Chip Cookies

Well, grab a coat, because Hell must have frozen over - I finally made good on my promise to make good ole regular chocolate chip cookies (thanks to my High Altitude Baking cookbook).

I know, I know, I am just as shocked as you are.

There's really no funny little anecdote to go along with this. I made chocolate chip cookies. They tasted good. Boom.

But here's a picture of a kitten for stopping by:

Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
2 tablespoons water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and baking powder. In a large bowl, cream sugars and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Add flour mixture slowly and thoroughly, a little at a time. Stir in chocolate chips and water. Drop cookies, about an inch around, onto an ungreased cookie sheet about an inch apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove cookies from the cookie sheet immediately and place on a cooling rack or wax paper.
