Chocolate Chip Cookies

I painted a pottery cookie jar just last weekend at a "paint your own pottery" place in town! HAD A BLAST! These are the memories I want my kids to have! Only hope they don't fight over it when they are older as to who gets the cookie jar from growing up to use with their own kids! :) So that's why there are extra pictures! :)

HAD to make cookies to put in there! :)

WHO stole the cookie from the cookie jar!?!?

Was it Laine!? Ezra? Chavalah!?

1 c butter
1 c shortening
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 c white sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla
1 t. soda
1 t. salt
3 c chocolate chips
3 c flour
1 sm box instant vanilla pudding

Combine flour, vanilla pudding dry mix, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine soften butter with shortening, sugar and brown sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Beat in eggs. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Scoop onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Hey Just a Parents tended to try to do triplicate of gifts to give us. For example my mom has a wooden pig cutting board that my Dad made her for a wedding anniversary, two years ago for Christmas my dad took the top (old buther block wood) off of our diswasher and made three more piggy cutting boards and all three of us girls got one for was the memory of home something we grew up with plus something dad took the time to make for I would say if you get a chance go back make two more or three just in case one breaks and squirrel them away for when the kids go to college, or buy their first home, or gulp get married....just a thought then there is no fighting over all the good memories.
