Now THESE are the best Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've been seeing a certain recipe on Pinterest that claims to be the "Best Chocolate Chip Cookies"
and while, I have yet to make them...I just don't believe they are.


Because I know these are. 
And thank goodness for running, because I am pretty sure I need to run a lot to work off the points I used to eat these. 
Worth. It.

My Mom's Very Best Most Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies in the World

1/2 Cup shortening
1/2 Cup margarine or butter ( I always use butter)
3/4 Cup sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp water

Beat until creamy

Add in 2 eggs and mix well

Add 2 1/4 Cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt and fold in 12oz ( 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips)

Drop spoonfuls on to cookie sheet
Place in preheated 350 degree over for 9-10 minutes

NOW...I love my cookie to be pretty soft. Especially on the inside with just a slight crispy edge. So, I take mine out after 8 minutes. They won't look done, but they will set up nicely as the cool.

You are welcome


  1. I must make cookies this week. Except I hate to bake. I need to get over it! Yum!

  2. Um, YUM! Your pictures are what sold em! (ps....don't try the pudding cookies on pinterest, not impressed).
