The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie

My mom makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Go ahead and argue with me if you want, but in the end, when you try them you will agree. My mom used to make large batches of these cookies and then include extras in our lunches for school. She always gave us extras so we could trade with other kids. You have no idea the treats I could get for one of my mom's cookies. They are seriously that delicious. Once at a church potluck, somebody stole the plate her cookies were on so they could figure out who made the cookies and get the recipes. Now that I have talked them up do you think they can live up to the hype? You betcha! 

You will need: 

  • 2 1/2 C. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt 
  • 1/2 C. butter
  • 1/2 C. shortening 
  • 1 C. brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 C. sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 bag milk chocolate chips

Cream butter, shortening and sugar together until it is fluffy and the sugar is dissolved. Add eggs and vanilla while these are mixing. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Slowly add the chocolate chips. 

Drop onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. The cookies may look slightly under cooked when removed from the oven, but they will continue to cook as they cool. This will ensure a softer cookie. 

Does your mom have a signature cookie?
