1 c Brown sugar

1 Handful* chocolate chips
2 c Flour (white or half white

Cream shortening and sugar till smooth. Add all the
handfuls. Mix well, then add combined flour and baking
soda. Add milk. Drop by tablespoons on greased cookie
sheet. Bake at 350~ about 10 minutes or until done.
Leave on cookie sheet a minute or two before lifting
them off, as they might crumble. Makes 3 doz.
*Handfuls are adult handfuls. If children are making
this they will need 2-3 handfuls. Ratio of handfuls
can be adjusted – you might want to go heavier on the
raisins and peanuts and lighter on the chocolate chips.
