Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat sugar, shortening, butter, vanilla and egg with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt.

Expert Tips

Melt chocolate chips in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until melted. Or microwave chips in a microwavable bowl uncovered on Medium (50%) 3 to 4 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes.

Bake the cookies, tightly wrap and freeze up to 6 months. When you're ready to serve the cookies, thaw at room temperature and add the caramel and chocolate topping.
