Black & White Cookies

Here's another cookie recipe that freezes just great.  Then when someone calls and says they want to stop by, you can pop a few in the oven.


1 butter flavored Crisco stick
1/2 C white sugar
1 1/2 C packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 C all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp hot tap water
1/2 tsp salt
1 C semi sweet choc chips
1 C white chocolate chips


Cream together shortening and sugars with a mixer.  Beat in eggs, then stir in vanilla.  Dissolve the baking soda in a small bowl with hot water, then add to the cookie batter along with the salt.  Stir in flour with the mixer until well combined.  Stir in both kinds of chocolate chips by hand.  Roll cookie dough into 1 1/2 inch balls and place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.  Flash freeze for 1-2 hours. 

Once frozen, gently peal up cookie dough balls and place in a zip lock bag.  Freeze until ready to bake. 

When ready to bake place desired number of cookies on a cookie sheet and bake 350 degrees for 11-12 min.  Let cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 min.  Then serve. 

These are nice and sweet.  =)  A great mix of chocolates for true connoisseurs.
