About this recipe: These are my favourite biscuits, which my grandma used to make for me.
Well, I could tell from the start that this recipe needed some adjusting. The amount of shortening and butter didn't sit well with the flour. I used 2-1/4 cups flour, 2/3 c. each brown and white sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp salt and added 1 cup nuts and 12 oz white chips. (Left the other ingred. as they were) Bake for 11 minutes at 375 and give yourself four stars!! - 03 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Delicious cookies. I did admit I changed the recipe just a little. For added moisture and chewiness, I included some brown sugar. I put in 1 1/3 cup white sugar, and 1/3 cup brown sugar (omitted the last 1/3 cup altogether). I also used over half whole wheat pastry flour. I baked for 8 minutes at first, then went to 7.5 minutes- perfect time for my oven. Chewy inside and crisp edges, and nice and soft. These are really good. - 09 Feb 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I make cookies all the time and these were great...Made just as is and they came out wonderful. I like to make my chocolate cookies a day ahead of time because the good chocolate flavor comes out better after a day at rest. Keep in a air tight container and they held up wonderfully! Thanks for the share. - 30 Jul 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
