Grandma's Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Grandma's Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies - Finding Joy in My Kitchen


2 C shortening (or butter)

2 C white sugar

1 C brown sugar

4 eggs

4 C flour

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking soda

1-2 tsp. vanilla

12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips


Cream sugars and shortening together. Add eggs one at a time, mixing briefly after each addition. 

Add vanilla, soda and salt and cream. Add in flour and chocolate chips. Refrigerate several hours, or overnight.


Drop by spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes, or until browned. 

Makes about 6 dozen cookies.


Note: dough freezes well. Simply scoop out individual cookies portions onto a cookie sheet or into a pan, cover and freeze until solid. 

Transfer to an airtight container and freeze until ready to use. You may also shape dough into a roll to have your own slice and bake cookies. 

Grandma always seems to have these in the freezer :)
