The other day just for fun I put a photo of our cookie jar on Facebook to recognize National Cookie Day. The response was trememdous, and there were requests for cookie recipes. Since we already have our famous peanut butter cookie recipe posted, I asked the chefs for the next favorite recipe–their special chocolate chip cookies.
Chocolate Chip Cookie (makes approx. 40 cookies)
1/2 pound butter, soft
1/2 pound shortening
2 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
18 ounces chocolate chips
1. Cream the butter and sugars with a mixer or by hand until smooth
2. add the egg and vanilla extract and scrape down the bowl, mix until incorporated, but do not over mix.
3. add the flour, salt and baking soda. Mix until just combined. Mix in the chocolate chips
4. Small ice cream scoop onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees, rotating after 5 minutes for a total of 10 minutes.
