1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup Crisco
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups flour
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
Cream sugars, Crisco, egg and vanilla together until light and fluffy
Add rest of ingredients and mix until blended.
Drop on ungreased cookie sheets and bake in a 375 degree oven for 10 minutes.
Cool on wire racks.
The cookie sheets I use are the ones with a layer of air between two layers and I really think it makes a big difference.
I store the cookies in plastic freezer bags in the freezer.
The recipe is from an old Better Homes and Garden cookbook that I bought on our honeymoon many years ago. The recipe is now changed in the newer versions.
There have only been two people who told me they've eaten better chocolate chip cookies than these over the years and they both like their mother's better.
Happy Baking 🍪
