There are a lot of minecraft "irl" foods out there but surprisingly no cookies. I had to do something about this monstrosity. I went straight to work planning out the idea. The recipe is really simple and can be done in almost no time at all. Perfect for when you and your buddies decide to do a Minecraft all-nighter and need some chow. These cookies look amazing and taste just as good. It isn't that complicated to make so please don't just look at the pictures.

Step 1: Ingredients
For this recipe you just need:
- 1 cup of Shortening
- 3/4 cup White Sugar
- 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. Vanilla
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 3/4 tsp. Baking Powder (Has to be baking powder)
- 1/4 tsp. Baking Soda (Use these exact measurements)
- 2 3/4 - 3 cups Flour
- A handful of chocolate chips
This is just your regular old chocolate chip cookie recipe but modified a little bit. We need to use baking powder and more flour than usual to make a stiffer, crispier dough that works like sugar cookie dough or play-doh. That way we can mold them into the iconic pixel shape. Don't skimp out on anything or it won't turn out right.
This makes around 8 cookies, 10 if you are careful.
Step 2: Preheat the Oven
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Don't forget this step or else it takes a billion times longer.
Step 3: It's Creaming Time
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the shortening and both types of sugar. Cream until light and fluffy. Once fluffy, add both eggs one at a time mixing continuously. This is the "egg goop part". Here we are preparing the wet side of the cookies so that when we add the dry side we have cookies with a better texture and a better taste, and we always want the better taste.
