Amber's Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 c shortning (I use 1 c butter-flavored shortning/shortning sticks and 1 c margarine)
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1 1/2 c white sugar
2 t vanilla
2 t baking soda
2 t salt
5 1/2 c flour (I usually only need 5 c)
1 bag chocolate chips
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-11 minutes.
Makes 6 dozen.
*This time around I didn't have a full bag of chocolate chips, so I put the 3/4s bag I had in the mix and added some Hersey Symphony bar. Yum! Also, to keep the cookies from going flat, I recommend that you keep the dough cold before cooking. I usually put it in the freezer between batches--and this recipe makes a lot of batches!
As a side note, I am a huge believer in parchment paper. I use it whenever I cook cookies, cake, or bread and skip the spray.
