Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies were the first cookies I baked. Originally, I wasn’t going to post this easy and common recipe, but I learned when I studied in Ireland that not everyone is familiar with this great cookie. When I baked these before work, I didn’t realized I added 1/3 cup shortening instead of 1/2 cup until I was cleaning the cups! LOL! There was no taste difference, so I did something healthy :)


Chocolate Chip Cookies


1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips

Mix shortening, both sugars, egg, and vanilla until creamy. Add flour and soda. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 375F for 8-10 minutes (mine took 13 minutes).
