Cookie similar to Michelle Obama's
Ingredients
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter-flavored solid vegetable shortening
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup extra dark chocolate chips
  • 2 cups toasted and chopped walnuts
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Have ready two ungreased baking sheets.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda and salt together in a small bowl.
  3. Using medium-high speed of an electric mixer, beat the butter, vegetable shortening, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.
  4. Reduce mixer speed to medium and beat in the eggs, beating just until mixed.
  5. By hand, stir in the flour mixture. When flour mixture is incorporated, stir in chips and nuts.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Notes
The original recipe says it makes 60 cookies, but I make mine slightly larger and get around 48.
