Oh yeah, it’s recipe day. How about something yummy for the kids during summer break that they can help make? One that we enjoy making together is our Chocolate Chip Cookies. Even my 5-year old grandson gets into doing these, and they don’t last long. I would show you a picture but I can’t keep them around long enough to photograph. Enjoy them while they last.
Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 cup shortening (regular or butter flavor)
2 large eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
