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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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! Read More

I used gluten free flour which have been why they were not very fluffy to the eye. The flavor was good. More of a cakey cookie. Not what I was looking for. I’ll keep searching. Read More
