*Marie’s World Famous Chocolate Chip Cookies*
Makes 7 dozen

These delicious cookies are everything a chocolate chip cookie should be. Crisp and buttery and chock full of chocolate chips. Bet you can’t eat just one!

2/3 cup Trex or White flora
2/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup caster sugar
1 cup soft light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
3 cups plain flour (may need more
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 pound chocolate chips

Pre-heat the oven to 190*C/375*F. Lightly grease several cookie sheets and set aside.

Cream together the butter, shortening and sugars in a large bowl until fluffy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Sift together the flour, salt and soda. Stir into the creamed mixture to make a soft but not sticky dough. You can add a bit more flour if you need to. Stir in the chocolate chips. (You may substitute some of the chocolate chips with some sultanas and chopped nuts if you want)

Roll tablespoons of the dough into balls and set on the prepared cookie sheets, two inches apart. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let sit on the baking sheets for several minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with the rest of the dough. These are fabulous!
