I’ve been planning to try this recipe for brown sugar cookies for a few years, ever since I found out that my dad used to actually make these when I was little.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 cup shortening, melted
2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups + 4 T flour
Mix all ingredients together (batter will be thick). Drop or roll into a ball.
Bake until brown (about 12 minutes)
Because the cookies were a tiny bit bland, I added chocolate chips to half of the batter:
This recipe is an excellent base for a cookie that could have endless possibilities. I made a second batch yesterday and added some rolled oats. I also used butter instead of shortening this time, which changed the taste a little bit (more creamy) but made the cookies a bit more crunchy. Next, I’ll try coconut.
