Chocolate Chip Cookies

We love this recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I usually only get to bake a few cookies when I make this recipe because....we LOVE cookie dough at our house. This recipe is delicious, baked....or not:)

Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1 1/2 t salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet chocolate chips)

  1. I am craving cookies now. Chocolate chippers always hit the spot!

  2. There is nothing better than a good old chocolate chip cookie, and I'm always looking for new chocolate chip cookie recipes to try out. Thanks for sharing this one!

    I also left you a blog award, so come on over to get it!

  3. Wow Ive never seen this ratio before with chocolate chip cookies (2 eggs to 1/2 c butter. usually its 1 egg to 1/2 c butter) I'm gonna have to try this. They look beautiful.

  4. I'm curious about the ratio too - I made this and it seems really dry and crumbly. I'm going to add some butter and see if that helps.


THANKS for visiting!!
