Deniece W's Chocolate Chip Cookies


2 sticks(1 cup) butter, softened
1 cup oil (I used canola)
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
5 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 lb chocolate chips (I used Hershey's)

Cream butter, oil and sugars. Add eggs, vanilla (and almond ext). Add dry ingredients (I did 1 cup of flour at a time). Add chocolate chips. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Best when underdone and cooled completely. ( I never wait...I love chocolate chip cookies and cold milk)

my husband has been making these for years...with the almond extract (his secret ing.) He would be crushed to see this published. I'll keep it our little secret. Everyone we share them with LOVES them.

These are really amazing cookies and they bake up so nice. It was so unusual to make a cookie with canola oil in it, but they cooked up so nice and fluffy. I loved the almond extract in it. The only change I made was to reduce the sugars by a combined total of a cup and a fourth and the cookies were still plenty sweet, even my daughter thought so. Thanks for sharing this "secret" recipe!

Pink Posts - How much of each sugar did you use? And did the cookies maintain a good texture?
