Ladybug Cookies

I try to do some kind of baking each week with the kids. They love to be in the kitchen with me, so we decided to "wing it" and make these.

Here is the recipe:

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Red Baker's Chocolate
Mini Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, the eggs and the vanilla. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, soda and salt. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls.
Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Remove immediately from baking sheets.

Melt the Red Chips, then have the kids dunk cookies in the red chocolate and sprinkle with mini chips.

Simple, and good for an afternoon snack. :)
Made by the kids, for the kids.
