A visitor to my blog asked about Peg Bracken’s Shuttemup Cookie recipe and I found it in her 1976 book, The I Hate to Cook Almanack – A Book of Days (Recipes & Relief for the Reluctant Cook and the Harried Houseperson).
I haven’t tried this one, but I’ve never gone wrong on any of her other recipes. When I do try it, I’ll post an update.
Here you go, Aaron, just as Peg wrote it.
(The fastest chocolate-chip cooky)
1 cup butter or oleo*
1 cup brown sugar
2 cups flour
1 6-ounce package of chocolate chips
1 cup nuts, chopped
Mix it, press it into a thirteen-by-nine inch jelly-roll pan, and bake twenty-five minutes at 350 degrees. While it’s still warm, cut it in bars. If you forget to, just break it up when it’s cool.
