Baking Day

For baking day this week, the girls made Double Treat Cookies together. The cookies are mega-messy, but mega-yummy. Try them out yourself, but get the kids to do the mixing...
 Double Treat Cookies
2 cups white sugar
1.5 cups brown sugar
2 cups shortening
2 cups peanut butter
4 eggs
3 cups flour
6 cups oats
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp salt
 4 tsp baking soda
2 cups chocolate chips
Have your kids mix it all together by hand (Abi says be sure to do it really well). Gotta be with the hands - don't cheat with a spoon or mixer! Form into small balls and bake at 400F for 10 min.

They're worth the mess, truly.

oh girl, you're killing me w/ that shortening. ;)
I have a recipe almost identical but it calls for whole wheat flour instead of white. And, I use all butter. You can't tell one bit that it's whole wheat flour (until about 8 hrs later in the bathroom) ;)

Nevertheless, if you're interested (I know; I made such a good case for you to try it.) I'll email it to you.
