Chocolate Chip Meltaways

Sorry there was no “What I Wore Wednesday” this week.  It’s been a really tough week and I just couldn’t pull it all together in time.  So, enjoy some yummy cookies instead!

These are pretty quick and easy.  I make them at Christmas sometimes too.  I printed this off from an e-mail a long time ago but it says it is from Marge Clarks “Just About Thyme.”


-1 cup butter, softened

-1 cup vegetable oil

-1 cup sugar

-1 cup confectioners sugar, sifted

-2 eggs

-4 cups flour

-1 tsp baking soda

-1 tsp cream of tartar

-1 tsp salt

-1 tsp vanilla

-12 oz package semi-sweet chocolate chips

-additional granulated sugar


1.  Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl.  Beat until smooth.

2.  Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.  Add to butter mixture.  Beat until smooth.  Stir in vanilla and chocolate chips.

3.  Refrigerate dough for 10-15 minutes.

4.  Shape mixture into 1” balls.  Roll in granulated sugar.  Put 2” apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 395 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
