Hillary Clinton's Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Brush baking sheets lightly with vegetable oil.
  2. Combine flour, salt and baking soda on waxed paper.
  3. Beat together shortening, sugars and vanilla in large bowl with electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in rolled oats and then chocolate chips.
  5. Drop batter by rounded teaspoonsfuls onto baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or till golden. Cool cookies on sheets for 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
According to the lore surrounding these cookies, Hillary used to make them for congressman and other politicos when she was Arkansas' first lady. I hear Bill liked them too. A recipe from the first lady who declared that she wasn't the cookie baking type on 60 minutes.

Who am I?

My name is Anna.
I am a HUGE lover of Chocolate.
I eat it, I research it, and I live by it.

By day I am a dietician, ironically as it may seem.
By night, I am obsessed with the various aspects related to chocolate.

A Day Without Chocolate is like a day without Sunshine.
