When I make chocolate chip cookies, we eat a few then the rest sit around for a couple weeks 'till I throw them away. While Tyler's mom was here visiting, I had her show me how she makes hers. We (mostly Ty) went through 3 dozen in a week.
1/2 c butter
1/2 c shortening
1 t vanilla
3/4 c white sugar
3/4 c brown sugar
2 - 2 1/2 c flour (I used1 1/4 c white flour and 1 c whole weat flour
1 c chocolate chips
Cream sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla and eggs. Slowly add flour while mixing until it forms a sticky-ish dough (not too sticky, just bareley handleable). Add chocolate chips (and nuts if you want). Place on greased cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees for 7 - 9 minutes. YUM!
