    Tips for making Chocolate Chip Cookies:

 Always add the chocolate morsels last to the mix. It's best when they are very cold. Just barely stir the morsels in, don't over mix.

 Cream the shortening and sugar well. All the rest of the ingredients can be just mixed in, but proper creaming of the shortening and sugar is important.

 Make sure that your baking pans are cool between cookie batches.

 Substitute cherry flavored morsels for 1half of the chocolate morsels for a new taste treat.

 Drop your cookies extra thick, use an ice cream scoop, flatten the top a little, then place the cookie sheet in the refrigerator for twenty minutes. Take the sheet from the refrigerator and bake at 375 degrees until the cookie's edges are slightly brown and you will have a soft centered delight.

 Warm cookies always taste better than cold ones. Heat releases the flavor of chocolate and nut-meats. Try warming cookies in your microwave oven for a few seconds or in a 300 degree oven for about 5 minutes.


God didn't promise days without pain,
 laughter without sorrow, nor sun
 without rain, but he did promise
 strength for the day, comfort for the
 tears, and light for the way.
