Rustic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I discovered a really old “bakery-style” recipe that I decided to try a few weeks ago. I tinkered and played with the recipe for awhile, before coming up with the perfect chocolate chip cookie. I have several cookie recipes (and quite a few chocolate chip varieties) on my blog, but I think these are a personal favorite. Experimenting with chocolate chip cookie recipes has always been a favorite “hobby” of mine… And cookies – I have always loved them. I think it is because cookies are the first thing I learned to bake when I was younger.

As with my other recipes – please follow and use the ingredients listed. I use specific ingredients for specific purposes.

Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies Blaise the Baker

Rustic Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup soft shortening (such as “Crisco”)
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups (12 oz.) chocolate chips mixed with 1 heaping tablespoon white all-purpose flour (to prevent the chocolate chips from sinking to the bottom of the cookie)

Start by preheating the oven to 325 degrees F and preparing 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the soft shortening, white granulated sugar and light brown sugar until light and fluffy.

Next, add the baking soda, salt, pure vanilla extract and light corn syrup and stir to combine.

Add the large eggs, one at a time, and stir after each addition.

Finally, gently add in the white all-purpose flour. Stir just until it completely mixes in. Fold in the chocolate chips, being careful not to over-mix.

Drop the dough, in tablespoon size mounds, on the prepared baking sheets. Place (one sheet at a time) into the preheated oven for 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven, and allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet.

Remove and enjoy!
