Double Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Amish Friendship Bread Starter, and make your own starter!

It was time to use my Amish Friendship Bread Starter again, so I decided to come up with something different, and of course I thought of chocolate! This time I decided I wanted a double chocolate cookie. Have you noticed that I make a lot of chocolate things? Yup, I do, it always goes over well at our hose. Well, I played around a little and came up with this recipe.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies made with Amish Friendship Bread Starter

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
2 cups flour
6 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Cream the shortening and the sugar. Beat in the eggs and the Amish Friendship Bread Starter. Mix in the dry ingredients, then the chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

If you don't have a starter and you want to make one in a bowl mix -

Amish Friendship Bread Starter

1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
Put 1 cup stater into into 1 (1 gallon) ziploc bag. Do 3 bags total. Now you can give 2 away and keep one. Don't forget to put the date on it.

Here's the directions for how to keep the starter -

Day 1 - Do nothing
Day 2 - Mush the bag
Day 3 - Mush the bag
Day 4 - Mush the bag
Day 5 - Mush the bag
Day 6 - Add to the bag: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk - mush the bag
Day 7 - Mush the bag
Day 8 - Mush the bag
Day 9 - Mush the bag
Day 10 - Mix and divide starter

****Pour entire contents of bag into a not-metal bowl
****Add and mix well: 1 1/2 cups milk, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups sugar
****Measure out 1 cup of mixture into 4 separate 1 gallon Ziploc bags
****Keep 1 bag for yourself (You'll need to use it every 10 days, if you can't that's ok, it's pretty forgiving, you can let it go a few days, just keep mushing, then mix and divide. If you need to go on vacation, you can refrigerate it or freeze it)
