Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies
a double batch...
1 1/3 cup butter
1 1/3 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
2 cups brown sugar
4 teaspoons vanilla
6 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 (12 ounce) bag chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream butter and shortening and two sugars together. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat until combined. Add flour, 2 cups at a time. Add baking soda and salt with last 2 cups. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by large tablespoons (or ice cream scoop) onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8 minutes. Cookies will seem underdone when first removed, but will set as they cool!
NOTE: Quite possibly the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I've ever made. Seriously.
It also worked well as a deep dish option.
