Safe and Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies
Time out with flowers for a recipe post. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. Why? Because it NEVER FAILS. That is right, follow this exactly and you will always have the perfect cookie. They are delicious and they look pretty. You would feel proud to give these away to someone!
Not only does it never fail but it is easy and it has all the basic ingredients you use for a cookie, so you don't have to worry about running to the store for bread flour or anything like that.
One warning: If you eat half the cookie dough before you even bake a cookie, this is not the recipe for you. Because it calls for some shortening, the shortening makes the cookie dough not as appetizing as a recipe with all butter. You've been warned.
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups flour
1 package (12 oz) chocolate chips
1. Combine first two ingredients.
2. Beat in everything else except chocolate chips.
3. Mix in chocolate chips. Make 1.5" cookie dough balls and space about 3" apart.
4. Bake 375 degrees for 10 minutes or until tops just start to turn golden (just slightly, not too much)
