What better way to say "I love you" than with a long-stemmed chocolate chip cookie?
What You'll Need
- 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
- 20 wooden skewers or popsicle sticks, 6 to 8 inches long
- 1 cup (1 6-ounce package) semisweet chocolate chips
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat cookie sheets with cooking spray.
- In a medium-sized bowl, cream shortening, sugars, egg, and vanilla until light.
- In another medium-sized bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Add to shortening mixture and blend well. Add chocolate chips and nuts and stir until well mixed.
- Lay skewers on prepared cookie sheets (7 or 8 per sheet). Spoon 1 tablespoon of dough onto end of each skewer, covering top 2 inches of each skewer.
- Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Let cool 3 or 4 minutes and use a spatula to carefully remove stemmed cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Wrap a dozen long-stemmed chocolate chip cookies in waxed paper, plastic wrap, or tissue paper and tie with a ribbon to resemble a dozen long-stemmed roses...wink, wink.
