Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the world's best chocolate chip cookies. Perfectly crisp on the outside and and melt in your mouth in the middle.

Servings 2 dozen


Wet ingredients

  • 1/3 cup shortening (the sticks are best)
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Dry ingredients

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (guittard is my favorite, but ghirardelli is our second choice)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips (optional - you can do all chocolate chips!)
  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Beat wet ingredients on medium speed in mixer for at least two mins until light and fluffy.
  • Add chocolate chips and mix until just combined.
  • In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients.
  • Slowly incorporate the dry ingredients to the wet until just combined.
  • Place balls of dough on a cookie sheet with silpat liner or parchment paper, and cook for 9-10 minutes or until JUST browned on top.
  • Remove from the oven and let them set a few minutes before eating.
  • These are amazing fresh out of the oven, saved for later, or frozen and eaten straight out of the freezer.
