As promised I am sharing one of my favorite family recipes. I don’t know how many times or for how many events i have made these for… However, they are always a hit. People LOVE them!!
Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
Heat oven to 375*
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
1 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter and shortening. Gradually add sugars and beat until fluffy.
Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
Combine flour, baking soda and salt. Add to wet ingredients, beat well.
Add in chocolate chips. Drop in 1/4 cup (I drop mine by a heaping teaspoon-–like the one you eat with.)
Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes, keep a close eye on them! They get dark extremely quickly. Take them out of the oven when golden brown around the outside.
Time-saving tip: place parchment paper on your pans before cooking. It is easy to remove them from the pan, just pull the paper gently off the pan AND it saves them from sticking to any of your pans.
