Chocolate Chip Cookies

There is nothing I bake more often, then a plain chocolate chip cookie. Here is Nestle Tollhouse's recipe, but slightly altered.

  • 2 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (12 oz package) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. First mix together flour (sift it first) baking soda and salt in a seperate bowl. Mix sugar, butter and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Slowly mix in flour "mixture". Add chocolate chips last, but make sure to set aside a handful. I use a cookie scoop to drop onto a cookie sheet. Bake 9-11 minutes.

Should look like this when first dropped onto sheet.
Take the handful of chocolate chips and place a few randomly on each cookie.

That way they look better.
