DRAGON COOKIES (for Marcia Geiger )

By mystic

Category: Cookies, Bars, and Candy

3/4 cup butter-flavored Crisco
1 1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2 TBS.milk
1 TBS vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Combine: Crisco,brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Beat egg into creamed mixture. Combine dry ingredients and mix into creamed mixture until just blended. Stir in the chips and nuts.
Drop by rounded tablespoons of dough, about 3 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 9-12 minutes for chewy cookies or 12-15 minutes for crisp cookies. Do not over bake!
Cool several minutes before removing from cookie sheets. Yields 4-5 dozen

Note: For a totally new experience substitute 1-cup white baking chips for the chocolate. I always use walnuts with these cookies. They do not stay around very long!!!!

Note: For a Deeper chocolate experience, when I use the semi-sweet chocolate, I added some chopped bittersweet chocolate with the chips to make the 1-cup-measure

  Extra Notes  
Dragon cookies are out of a cookbook "Cooking for Your Dragon" submitted by Mary Knopinski (I did the white chips and walnut version).

I am submitting this recipe for Marcia Geiger.
