Better than Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Sometimes at 9:00 at night, you just really need a chocolate chip cookie.  And sometimes you have so many dishes in the sink and your kitchen is such a mess you can't actually bake cookies until your kitchen is clean, two hours late. By which point you're tired and hungry and eat far more than that singular chocolate chip cookie you intially desired.  Whoops.  It's okay though, these cookies are so satisfying they justify the calories (or so I tell myself), and so satisfying that you might want to eat 17.  But I won't tell if you do.

  • 2/3 c. butter  
  • 2/3 c. shortening 
  • 1 c. granulated Sugar                              
  • 1 c. Brown Sugar  
  • 2 eggs               
  • 2 tsp. vanilla                     
  • 3 c.  all-purpose flour         
  • 1 tsp. baking soda                                      
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • Semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 375. 
  2. Cream sugars, butter, and shortening.  Add egg and vanilla. 
  3. Mix in flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir in chocolate chips (I use about 1 1/2 cups of coarsely chopped dark chocolate) Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. 
  4. Bake until light gold on top, 8-10 minutes.

  • Remove the cookies from the oven when the edges barely start to brown.  Then leave them a few minutes on the cookie sheet to finish baking.  If you remove them once completely golden and crackled on top, they'll end up a little too crunchy.
Yields 3 dozen cookies.
