The best chewy chocolate chip cookies ever.
Dudes, these are in no way WW-friendly. But when it comes to choc chip cookies, I don’t want them to be. This recipe is courtesy of my aunt Kathy, but it’s not like a family secret or anything, they’re way too good to keep secret.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Makes about 3 dozen medium size cookies
2/3 cup shortening
2/3 cup softened butter
1 cup sugar
1cup brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 tsp vanilla
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
12 oz chocolate chips
Mix shortening, butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla until creamy. Mix flour, soda, salt and morsels in separate bowl, then stir together. Drop dough on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees. Cool before removing from cookie sheet.
I take them out at 8 minutes so that they’re really soft when they cool.
I made the dough for these last Thursday, and kept it in the fridge until Friday. I just let it come to room temp and then baked them. They turned out perfectly, so you can definitely make the dough ahead of time (although it runs the risk of being eaten before you get a chance to bake it!).
