I told someone awhile back that I could literally write a book on chocolate chip cookies… I love them, and always love trying new and exciting recipes. This recipe does not contain anything out of this world unique, but the combination of ingredients and flavors truly make a delicious cookie…
Brown Sugar Chocolate Chip Cookies
2/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
2/3 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup white granulated sugar
1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz. chocolate chips (mixed with a heaping tablespoon of white all-purpose flour to prevent the chips from sinking to the bottom of the cookie)
Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the solid vegetable shortening, unsalted butter, white granulated sugar and light brown sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, before stirring in the pure vanilla extract.
Next, add in the white all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt. No need to add in increments here – just add it all at once and stir until everything is combined.
Last, add in the flour covered chocolate chips and stir until combine.
Place tablespoon size amounts on parchment paper lined baking sheets and bake in preheated oven for about 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
Remove from oven and allow to cool on the baking sheets.
