Big Batch Chocolate Chip Cookies
An easy recipe for a great big batch of classic chocolate chip cookies. Perfect for freezing.
Cream together shortening/butter and sugars
Mix in the eggs and vanilla to the wet ingredients
Add the flour, soda, and salt and mix until combined, then mix in the chocolate chips
Use a cookie scoop to make dough balls and put on an ungreased cookie sheet then bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes (or 375° for 7-9 minutes for a crispier cookie)
Place on a wire rack to cool
The original recipe calls for 2 1/4 cups of butter flavored shortening. I don’t love shortening so I usually add 1 1/2 cups of butter and 1 cup shortening. If you want a taller cookie, use more shortening. If you are going for flavor and don’t care about them being flat, use more butter.
Don’t forget! You can use whatever mix-ins make you happy! M&M’s, nuts, craisins, toffee bits, whatever you love.
