Chocolate Chip Cookies

As the oldest daughter in the family I was given the Sunday baking chore very early in life. My Dad's favorite has always been Chocolate Chip Cookies so I made those A LOT. I think I've tried every recipe ever printed for those cookies. I've had some major fails and some okay tries but this recipe is hands down the best recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies I have ever tried. I got this from my friend Natalie while I was at college and I refuse to try anything else. I think it's the mixture of Butter and Shortening that gives it such a great flavor. I let them cook for 8 minutes then take them out while they look 'almost' done and bang the pan on a cupboard to make the cookies "fall" (does that make sense). Let the cookies cool and then try not to eat the entire batch.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
4 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
1 bag of chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat till smooth. Add flour, soda and salt. Mix. Add Chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Makes 6 dozen cookies.

Food is FUN not just fuel.
