I am not a big chocolate fan in any way. Stephen loves it but I just don’t. But even with that in mind I think these cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! We got this recipe from some good friends and we have been loving them ever since!!
- 1 C Shortening
- 3/4 C Brown Sugar
- 3/4 C White Sugar
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tsp Baking Soda
- 1 tsp Salt
- 2 1/2 C Flour
- 6 - 8 oz Chocolate Chips
- Nuts, if desired
- Preheat oven to 375 Degrees. Cream together the shortening, brown sugar and white sugar until fluffy. Then add eggs and vanilla and beat enough to combine.
- In a separate bowl combine, flour, salt and baking soda and mix with a fork. After stirring together add to first mixture and beat to combine. Then add chocolate chips and nuts.
- Grease cookie sheet and then drop 1 inch balls on the sheet. Bake for 13 - 14 minutes. You will only need to grease for the first batch!
