Chocolate Chip Cookies....

There are tons of chocolate chip cookie recipes out there. This is by far my favorite. I got this recipe from my sister in law Nicole after my husband told me many times..."I wish you would make chocolate chip cookies like Nicoles". The real trick with these cookies is to take them out of the oven early. I take them out at 9 1/2 minutes, Nicole does about 7 minutes. You want them to be just slightly golden and they will look really doughy in the middle. Just let them settle for awhile after you take them out and they will be perfect!!! Thanks Nicole, these are always a hit!!

1 cup sugar
2 cups brown sugar
2 cups shortening
4 eggs
3 3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
Mix the sugar and brown sugar together. Then add the shortening and mix. Add the eggs and mix. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix. Add the vanilla and chocolate chips and mix. Bake at 350 for 9 1/2 minutes. Until light golden brown. Remove from Oven and let sit on pan for a few minutes. Transfer to baking rack and let sit for about 1/2 hour so they can settle!! Enjoy!
***You can also add 2 cups Oatmeal at the same time as the chocolate chips if you desire!!!
