Every Christmas we plan a themed family Christmas party. One year we were “mad about plaid, another year we were Grinches and Whos in Whoville, and this year we will be “snowed in” at our very own ski lodge. No ski lodge would be complete without yummy things to eat and drink. Top of our list are warm Chocolate Chunk Cookies perfect for warming us up after a long day on the slopes (or as we pretend to be skiers in our photo booth). We hope you have a SWEET Christmas!
HEAT oven to 375ºF.
BEAT shortening, brown sugar, milk and vanilla in large bowl with mixer on medium speed until well blended. Beat in egg white. Combine flour, salt and baking soda. Mix into shortening mixture until just blended. Stir in chocolate chunks.
DROP by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls 3 inches apart onto baking sheet.
BAKE 8 to 10 minutes for chewy cookies, or 11 to 13 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool completely.
