This chocolate chip cookie recipe is one from my Great Grandma Hancock. It's the one we used growing up & I still make when we need a good 'go to' cookie recipe or I'm craving some delicious cookie dough.....seriously. I gave Scott some cookie options tonight & these are the ones he wanted. Enjoy!

chocolate chip cookies:

1 1/2 C. sugar
1 1/2 C. brown sugar
1 1/2 C. butter flavored shortening
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/2-4 C. flour
1/2-1 bag chocolate chips

1. Mix sugars, shortening & eggs well.
2. Add remaining ingredients & blend well.
3. Spoon onto cookie sheets & Bake 350 degrees for 8-10 mins or until light brown on top.
