Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is a modified version of the Tollhouse cookie recipe.

1 cup butter (softened)
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons of vanilla
4 eggs
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon of salt
4 1/2 cups of flour
1 24 ounce bag of chocolate chips.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

First, add the butter and shortening to your mixer and cream together:

Add the sugar and continue to mix:

Then add the brown sugar and mix well:

Next, add the vanilla (I am usually very liberal with the vanilla:

Next, scrape down the sides of the bowl:

Then add the eggs, one at a time, and mix until fluffy:

Then add the baking soda and the salt:

Next, add the flour. I have a 1 1/2 cup measure cup, so I do three of these, mixing well between each addition:

Next, scrape down the sides of the bowl again:

Now add the chocolate chips:

Now scrape down the sides of the bowl one last time, allowing even more mixture of the chocolate chips:

Now the dough is ready to be scooped onto your parchment lined cookie sheets:

Bake for 11 minutes and then remove from oven, and scoop onto a cooling rack:

Pour a nice big glass of milk, and enjoy!!

This recipe yields approximately 7 dozen cookies.

I adore baking and your recipes and pictures are gorgeous.

I love your kitchenaid! My family has the slightly larger model. My father has owned it since long before I was born. I'm about to leave home and I keep threatening to steal it...

Would you mind if I friended you?
