I have been searching for "the best" chocolate chip cookie recipe forever.
I've tried numerous recipes that claimed to be "the best" chocolate chip cookies.
But everyone has their own opinion about what "the best" is.
Some of the recipes were decent. The flavor was usually great, but it's the texture and consistency that I have not been able to get down.
But finally, here it is!
In my opinion, this one is THE winner.
Makes 4 dozen cookies
- 1/2 C (1 stick) butter
- 2/3 C shortening
- 1 C sugar
- 1 C brown sugar, packed
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3 C flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 1/2 C chocolate chips
Cream margarine and shortening until smooth.
Beat in sugars, eggs, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda.
Add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture; beat well.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll cookies into about 2-inch balls, then place on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
*Set the timer for 8 minutes. You do not want to over-bake!
