Brown Sugar Lunchbox Drops

These cookies came out of Better Homes and Garden Fall Baking magazine. There are multiple different things you can add to these cookies, I chose to put in chocolate covered raisins, but you can add M & M’s, chocolate-covered peanuts, or anything else you can think of.

  • 1⁄2  cup shortening
  • 1⁄2  cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1⁄2  cup sugar
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1⁄2  teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3⁄4 cups (352 g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup desired add-in

Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl combine butter and shortening, beating on high for 30 seconds. Add in brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking soda, and salt, beating until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Stir in flour and desired add-in. Drop dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet, baking for 8-9 minutes or until lightly browned.
