Surely you know Aug 21st is gonna be an epic day! When a “never gonna happen again in our lifetime” event occurs it’s to time to throw an out of this world party! It’s a given that we’ll have Sunkist, Sun Chips, and Starburts. But topping our list of necessary supplies are Total Eclipse Cookies – part light, part dark. A science lesson and treat all in one. We promise only to take our glasses off to grab a cookie or two!
Total Eclipse Cookies
1 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips, melted
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
Beat Crisco, sugar, brown sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and creamy.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture, beating until blended. Divide dough in half.
Stir melted chocolate and dark chocolate chips into one portion of dough. Stir white chocolate chips into other portion.
Take a small spoonful of each dough and roll together into a 1-inch ball. Place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 8 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to rack and cool completely.
