This recipe comes from one of my FAVS, Martha Stewart; however, with a twist of Judy to it!  But seriously, can you make a bad chocolate chip cookie?  Yeah, I didn't think so either.  I do, though, love a "cakey" cookie!  If you do too, you will love this.

  • 2-14/ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 full stick of Crisco Butter Flavor Shortening (you can use butter instead, unsalted, 1-3/4 sticks, room temp)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used the mini's in this recipe, but use what you want)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.

In the bowl of electric mixer, combine butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Reduce speed to low; add the salt,vanilla, and eggs.  Beat until well mixed, a couple of minutes.  Add flour mixture; mix on low to medium until just combined.

Add in chocolate chips; mix on low for about 30 seconds.

Drop 1-1/2 tbsp size balls of dough, about 2 inches apart on baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bake until cookies are golden around the edges and set in the center, 10-12 minutes. 

 Remove from oven and let cool on wire rack.

Of note:  Makes 2 dozen if you make a bigger cookie (1-1/2 tbsp), and 3 dozen if you make a smaller cookie (1 tbsp)
