an original.

i received this text last night:

"you should bring us some good homemade snacks for our room tomorrow :)"
uh oh. the girls stressed & home sick already?! classes haven't even started! but no worries, i had something up my sleeve. i was out of chocolate chips, so i used my moms perfect chocolate chip recipe + a secret (it won't be secret if you read the recipe) ingredient of my own. thus, creating an original recipe.  

anneliese's take-to-the dorms cookies (doesn't really roll of your tongue...the name might need some tweaking.)

Beat until well blended:
½ cup butter
¼ cup Crisco
3 T. oil
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
2 t vanilla
beat until fluffy. Then add:
2 medium eggs
mix until well blended.
In a separate bowl combine:
2 ½ cup flour
1 t baking soda
½ t salt
add to mixer.
Mix until blended, do not over mix.
1 heaping cup Andes creme de menthe baking chips 

bake 350 for 10 minutes.
yields 4 dozen (and this does allow for some dough tasting).

I can see why you use that secret ingred. One of your favorites. I think it would taste so good. Did you really go to the dorm? That was so sweet of you to take care of the homesick girls.
