CNYEats A Taste of Utica Hj’s Chocolate Chip Family Recipe

by Joanne on February 10, 2013

It was going to be a beautiful day for a run as long as you could wait until after about 10 am.  I’m impatient and want to get my workout over in the early AM so I couldn’t wait.  It was too cold to do my long run outside at 6 am with temperatures at 2 degrees.  I grabbed water, a couple of gels, put the fan on, turn the T.V. to Law & Order and ran for 14 1/4 miles on the treadmill.  Finished outside for 4 miles with Shane and Zoey then made good use of the snow by icing my sore hamstrings.

We all had fun in the snow.

And then we ate cookies…

A recipe over 60 years old and made with Buttermilk.  They freeze well and won rave reviews by our recipe contributor, Hj.  Found on page 203 of our book A Taste of Utica.

Makes 4 dozen

  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup shortening (I used unsalted butter)
  • 1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 TBS vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Mix all of the above well.

Preheat oven to 375 F (orig. recipe said 350 but I found 375 worked better) and prepare cookie sheets with a light coat of non stick spray.

Drop by tablespoons on cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for approximately 12 – 14 minutes or until light brown.

That’s it!  You have a load of delicious chocolate chip cookies.
