Cecelia's Story

Years ago before my children were born, I found this recipe in a cookbook. It was so easy to follow, and always came out tasting so good. The key is not to overcook, so the cookies are chewy and soft.


1/2 c
vegetable shortening
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/4 c
brown sugar, lightly packed
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 c
sifted all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c
broken nuts

Directions Step-By-Step

In a mixing bowl combine the shortening, sugars, egg and vanilla. Beat mixture till thoroughly combined. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to creamed mixture blending well.
Stir in chocolate pieces, and if desired nuts.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoon 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or till edges are lightly browned.
Cool cookies on a wire rack.

    You are welcome Bernice. When I think of chocolate chip recipes this is the one I use. I really hope it turns out as well as it has for the past 31 years for me.
