  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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

I followed the recipe exactly with the exception of using mini morsels and they turned out delicious; and they're a very pretty looking cookie as well! Thanks for sharing with us!

Exactly what I was looking for in texture! Didn't change anything but I did double the batch
