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

  4 eggs
  2 t vanilla

Then add:
  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.
