  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine flour, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, combine soften butter with shortening, sugar and brown sugar and vanilla. Beat until creamy. Beat in egg. Gradually add flour mixture and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 8-10 min. Note: I take them out of the oven before they start to turn dark! Do not double this recipe, or they don't bake soft. Can make this recipe for bars too. Spread dough into greased 9x13 inch pan. Bake them at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 15-20 minutes.

I followed this recipe exactly. In my opinion the recipe calls for too much shortening. I think that was the problem because I could taste the shortening in the cookies.

These were really, really good. Be sure to watch them in the oven, or they won't turn out as soft. But they are great either way!! The salt does need to be increased to 1/2 tsp, though. Othe...

These are wonderful. These have definitely replaced my old regular recipe. I think these are even easier to make. The key is definitely to remove them from the oven before golden brown and le...

These were great and were still nice and soft the next day. The dough freezes great as well.

I am not the best baker in the world and my biscuits never seem to work but I have my 4th batch in the oven now from trying this recipe for the first time. I do not agree that the cookies are no...
