Baking: Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies

(yes, the cookie dough is this lickable...)

My (famous) chocolate chip cookie recipe.  It's from a church recipe book of the '80s, which is plum full of many a delicious idea.  Good Lord, but those Christians sure do know how to bake! These cookies are by far the best of the batch.  They melt in your mouth (sometimes falling apart before they get there).  Best of all, it's the best darn cookie dough this side of the ... the ... Lake Ontario? The point is, my friends, they're delectable.

The best tip I can give you to make these the best they can be, is to mix the batter between every addition of ingredient.  This ensures total absorption of sugars and makes for the lightest of batter.  I usually add about a cup of chocolate chipits.  And then use a spoon to deliver said batter to the cookie sheet.

Happy baking!
