Chocolate Chip Cookie Receipe

Here’s a super easy and quick recipe for chocolate chip cookies. I make them on the smaller side and, sadly, have to omit the walnuts (nobody but I like them – go figure)! These cookies are great for school lunch boxes! Here is what you are going to need for this:

½ cup butter, softened
½ cup vegetable shortening
1 packed cup dark brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 ½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 12-oz. package semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Take your eggs out of the fridge and let them sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes.
  • Mix the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
  • In another bowl. Cream the butter and the shortening together. Add the sugars and beat until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and the vanilla. Beat until creamy.
  • Add the flour mixture, carefully and working in batches. Mix well.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips and walnuts if using.
  • Drop cookies from a small spoon about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until cookies are evenly browned.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • Enjoy!
