Chewy Chocolate Cookies!

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

One of my grandmother's recipes that came out great! I had to share. These are very chewy fudgy cookies.

Chocolate Drop Cookies

2 c brown sugar

1/2 c shortening (Crisco)

1 t vanilla

1 egg yolk

1/2 c "sour" milk - put 2 t vinegar in a measuring cup and fill to 1/2 c with milk

2-1/2 c your choice of flour - I used Bette Hagman's original blend

1/2 c cocoa (or 1/2 c melted baking chocolate)

pinch of salt

1 t baking soda

2 -1/2 t xanthan gum

Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets.

Cream shortening and brown sugar. Add vanilla, egg yolk, and sour milk.

Combine dry ingredients and gradually add to wet ingredients until completely combined.

Use two forks to drop blobs of dough onto cookie sheets. Make blobs the size of a ping-pong ball, more or less. Bake 9 - 10 minutes. Remove to paper towels on counter to cool.

When these first come out they might seem underdone, but as they cool they will get charmingly wrinkled and become nice and chewy. They kept well for a couple of days, although I had to hide them from myself to get them to last that long.
