Jenni's notes for this recipe:
There's a few ingredients in this cookie that you don't normally find in your average chocolate chip cookie recipes. This recipe was slightly adapted from a recipe.
**note** the dough gets refrigerated overnight, so plan ahead! Happy baking!

Mix dry ingredients (first 5 listed) together. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, cream together shortening, butter, and both sugars until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add vanilla and lemon juice and beat well.
Slowly add in dry ingredients, beating on low until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using 1/4 C measuring cup, or an ice cream scoop, place cookies about 2 inches apart on lined baking sheets. Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until cookies begin to turn golden on the top and around the edges.
Cool on pan for 2 minutes before transfering to a wire rack to cool completely.

Why do you need the lemon juice?
