Light and Fluffy Chocolate Chip Cookies


I found an original recipe and adapted it to my taste. I love the fluffiness of this cookie. It's soft, not hard, and crunchy. I get so many compliments on this recipe!

Prep Time:

Total Time:
18 mins
2 dozen cookies


  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour, or more as needed

  • 1 (11 ounce) package semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Beat shortening and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add brown sugar and white sugar and beat until smooth. Add eggs, vanilla extract, and baking soda; beat until well mixed.

  3. Slowly mix enough flour into butter mixture until a thick dough forms; fold in chocolate chips. Spoon small mounds of dough onto a baking sheet, about 1-inch apart.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 9 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Take cookies out of oven before completely done for a soft, not gooey cookie.

Use chocolate pieces instead of chips, if desired.
