Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some cookies for a rainy day.

Chocolate chip cookies are such a delicate treat. Everyone has a favorite recipe or knows someone who makes them the best. I have tried a number of recipes and finally tweaked mine so it's just how I like it. I've been told they taste like Hot Chocolate, I'll take it as a compliment.

Thought I'd share my recipe in case any of you are still on the hunt for one you like (my hunt will likely never end).

Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • 1 c. butter flavored shortening (they never turn out for me if I use butter)
  • 3/4 c. granulated sugar
  • 3/4 c. packed brown sugar + 2 Tbsp (give or take)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/4 tsp real vanilla
  • 2 1/2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Chocolate chips- lots!
Cooking Directions:
Cream shortening and sugars. Beat in one egg. Beat in second egg and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients then add. Stir in chocolate chips. Do not roll, use cookie scoop or spoon.

Bake 350 9 minutes, then check, or until light brown. I usually go about 10 minutes. Drop the cookie sheet of the counter and remove cookies to cooling rack.

I loved these. My kids are gobbling them up as we speak. I love how you explain the steps - super easy to follow for anyone. I think the key in these is the cinnamon - haven't used it in a plain chocolate chip cookie before. I'm just happy I made a double batch. Tell the girls hi for us. Let's skype so they can chat!!
