Yogurt, Walnut and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here's a great recipe that uses yogurt and no eggs to make some of the best chocolate chip cookies I've ever tasted.

  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 ounces chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together sugars, shortening and butter until thoroughly combined. Stir in yogurt and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine salt, flour and baking soda. Stir into creamed mixture until thoroughly combined, mix in chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  allow to cool for a few minutes on cookie sheet after taking out of oven, remove cookies to a wire rack to cool. Makes about 36 cookies.
