i love boys

my friend mark sent me his recipe for orange chocolate chip sugar cookies.

fucking phenominal.

i just love the way you can tell he's a straight boy baking. tell me if this doesn't crack you up. (and i quote):


ok cookie recipe.

1 c shortening
6oz cream cheese, softened (I find 40 seconds in the micro softens it perfectly)
1/2 c sugar, granulated
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
2 eggs, large
2 ts orange peel, grated (I zest it, and use two oranges)
1 ts vanilla
2 c flour, unbleached (whatever. bleached)
2 ts baking powder (do not substitute baking soda. trust me.)
1 ts salt
6 oz chocoloate chips (I use more...)

cream together shortening, cheese, and sugars. add eggs, peel, and vanilla. beat well. stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. add to creamed mixture. mix well. stir in chocolate chips. drop from teaspoon two inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. bake at 350 degrees F about 10 minutes. I wait until you can see the bottoms browning then wait a couple more minutes depending on how thick they are. you'll get a feel for them.
