William's (Cinnamon) Chip Muffins

This recipe was originally made with chocolate chips, but I've only had it with cinnamon chips, which are delicious. We've made them twice in a week.

1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. milk
1/3 c. melted butter
1 egg
1 c. (mini) cinnamon chips

Preheat oven to 375. Mix together dry ingredients, then add liquid ingredients. Add cinnamon chips last. Like pancakes, do not over stir; this toughens the muffins.

Bake for 25 min.

Makes 1 dozen.

Sister Chalmer's (whomever she was) Chocolate Chip Cookies

Maybe you guys all have a good chocolate chip cookie recipe, but we always just make the one on the back of the package, with sort of so-so results. I had these at a friend's house, and they are mmm mmm good.

1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c white sugar
1/3 c crisco
1/3 c butter
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 c flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 - 3/4 c semi sweet chocolate chips

1) blend shortening and butter until creamy
2) blend in sugars, egg and vanilla
3) blend in all dry ingredients
4) fold in chocolate chips

Bake at 375* for 8-9 min.

(This is only a 1/4 batch from the original. It makes a little over 2 dozen. Can be easily doubled.)
