The Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are the best chocolate chip cookies you will ever make. They always get rave reviews wherever I take them.  I hope you enjoy them as much as my family and friends do.


  • 2/3 cup Crisco shortening
  • 2 sticks of real butter (salted)
  • Eggs-2
  • Granulated sugar-1 cup
  • Light brown sugar-1 cup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups bread flour (all-purpose flour is fine also)
  • 12 oz. bag of Nestle semi-sweet chocolate chips



  • Mix together thoroughly the sugar, brown sugar, Crisco, butter, eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda
  • Add flour and mix thoroughly
  • Pick up a bit of dough.  If it is very tacky, add more flour.  It should come off of your fingers easily
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Drop by hand to a cookie sheet in desired size, spacing 1-2 inches apart
  • Bake at 375 degrees until the peaks are golden and they no longer appear gooey in the center (don’t let them get too golden)
  • Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheet to allow for residual baking to occur
  • Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to continue to cool completely
