Triple Chocolate Chip Cookies

"Look not mournfully into the past. It comes not back again. Wisely improve the present. It is thine. Go forth to meet the shadowy future, without fear, and with a manly heart." - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

It's time to ring out the old and ring in the new with some heart warming dishes and lip smacking goodies. We had a great time with friends on New Years' Eve, counting down to 2010. A great start to a new decade, a new beginning....

I whipped up some triple chocolate cookies a few days ago. I added in three types of chocolate to make it chocolatey in every bite.

You will need: (Yields about 60 cookies)

½ cup Vegetable Shortening
½ cup unsalted Butter, at room temp
1 cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
½ tsp Baking soda
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla extract
2 ½ cups All-purpose flour
4 oz Milk chocolate chips
4 oz White chocolate chips
4 oz Semi-sweet chocolate mini chips

Preheat oven to 375F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.

Beat the shortening and butter using a stand up mixer or a hand-held electric beater till smooth and well blended. Add the brown sugar, white sugar and baking soda. Beat until combined; then add the eggs and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in the remaining flour using a wooden spoon. Add the chocolate chips and give one last stir to combine. Using a teaspoon, drop rounded mounds of the dough on prepared baking sheets spacing them 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.

Let cookie sheets cool between batches so the dough doesn’t spread too much while baking. Cool cookies completely before storing in air tight containers.

These cookies are irresistibly good while still warm. I had a hard time trying to avoid stuffing myself!

Wishing all of you health, wealth, and scrumptious food this year! :)
