till mixed well. Set the flour mixture aside.

mixer to medium speed and beat the butter for 30 secons.
Turn off mixer. Measure the brown sugar and regular sugar.
Add to the mixer bowl. Turn mixer to medium speed and beat about 1
minute or till mixed well. Turn off mixer. Use a rubber scraper
to scrape sides of mixer bowl and beaters.

gently seperate the eggshell halves. Pour egg into small bowl.

Turn the electric mixer to low speed and beat the chocolate pieces
into the cookie dough. Turn off the mixer.
6 To drop the dough onto the cookie sheet, get enough dough on a small spoon
so the dough is slightly humped in the spoon. With the back of
another small spoon, push the dough onto one of the cookie sheets.
Leave about 2 inches between each cookie.
7 Put the cookie sheet in the hot oven. Bake the cookies for 8 to 10
minutes or till the cookies are golden brown. Meanwhile, drop
some more cookies the same way onto the other cookie sheet.
8 Use hot pads to remove cookie sheet from oven. Put the second sheet of
cookies into the oven. Let the baked cookies cool for 1 minute on
the cookie sheet. Use a pancake turner to lift cookies onto a cooling
rack, or clean counter top. When the first cookie sheet is cool, drop
more dough onto it. Bake the rest of the cookies the same way.
Turn off the oven. Makes about 48 cookies.
