This is a tried and true chocolate chip recipe that we make all the time!
- 1/3 cup shortening (use the sticks)
- 1/3 cup butter
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
Beat on medium speed in mixer for at least three mins until light and fluffy
Add 1-2 cups chocolate chips (my very favorite are Guittard, but Ghirardelli works too)
Mix into dough
In a separate bowl, combine
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
Mix into the dough until just combined.
For best results, refrigerate for a bit until dough is cold and stiff.
Cook at 350ºF for 10 mins, or until just lightly browned on top.
These are amazing fresh out of the oven, saved for later, or frozen and eaten straight out of the freezer.
