Chocolate Chip Cookies - Uncle Franks Directions

  1. Cream together shortening and sugar, add fruit and mix well. Add salt, baking powder and soda and eggs, mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time and mix well. Add chocolate chips and nuts if desired
  2. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes
  3. We like to add 12oz of butterscotch chips to the mix, the combo with the chocolate chips is really good
  4. For blended fruit you can use applesauce, or peaches or pears. If using peaches or pears place fruit in a blender with just a bit of the juice and blend until smooth
