Madeleine family recipe

Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup shortening (I like to use a butter Crisco stick)
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla

cream together first four ingredients

then add

1/3 buttermilk (I just add 1 tsp white vinegar to my skim milk)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups flour (I may add a touch more because I don't like greasy cookies)
1 package chocolate chip cookies (I prefer Hershey Semi Sweet or Dark)

form into balls and bake at 350 degrees for around 10 minutes
makes 3 dozen

Then just add milk and enjoy!

We love them and hope you do too!
