Sourdough Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/4 c butter
1/4 c shortening
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white Sugar
1 c sourdough starter 1 tsp vanilla
3 c flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Combine sugar, shortening, egg, sourdough starter and vanilla.
In another bowl mix flour, baking powder, soda and chocolate chips. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix well and let rest at least 15 min (for even better benefits let it ferment for 1-12 hours) at room temperature.
Shape into walnut-sized balls and then flatten (I use a highball type glass dipped in sugar).
Place on greased cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes. Cool slightly before taking off the cookie sheet.
**I suppose I am going to need another disclaimer here on the Homestead, heh?

Items consumed during recipe tests, home or office cookie exchanges, holiday and other seasonal baking, kept for personal consumption, sold at bake sales, or shared as gifts, may have an adverse effect on proper clothing fit, comfort while doing regular tasks such as sitting, standing or moving, and could result in an unseemly discussion with weight-related items, such as scales, yoga balls, Curves machines, and those friends and family members who also partake but do not show additional poundage outcomes.

Ok...anyone know a good lawyer? I don't speak 'legalese' so I just did the best I could and tried to cover all the bases :o)
And I suppose, in the interest of friendship here, I can always dig up some Richard Simmons, Billy Blanks, or some Biggest Loser exercise clips on YouTube after the holidays to force those cookies back off all of us :o).
Whaddya say? A little Billy Boot Camp and Tae Bo after the holidays anyone?
