Whistle Stop Chocolate Chip Cookies

A beery delicious version of a most popular dessert!

Ellen McKinney: Every now and then Steam Whistle Staff congregate at local establishments for comradery and a pint o' pilsner. We call this Whistle Stopping. The only thing missing from such social gatherings are these cookies! This recipe is a standard chocolate chip cookie concoction that hails from the ovens of New Brunswick that I made all the yummier with a dash o' Steam Whistle! I promise that you won't be able to eat just one... or refrain from gorging on the cookie dough!


Preheat oven to 375 F. Cream shortening and brown sugar in a large bowl or food processor until light and fluffy. Add egg, STEAM WHISTLE and vanilla; beat 1 minute until blended thoroughly. Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a separate bowl. Gradually add to creamed mixture until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoons on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving space between cookies. Bake for 7 - 9 minutes being careful not to overcook as a soft and chewy texture is desired. Cool 2 minutes on sheets and move to a cooking rack. Makes about 3 dozen cookies. Hide until ready to serve!


  • 3/4 C shortening (try to buy the butter flavoured or golden kind as it has more flavour)
  • 1-1/4 cups brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla (pure is the best but artificial will do)
  • Optional: add 1/2 tsp. almond extract for a smooth nutty taste
  • 1-1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups chocolate chips
