Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mmmmmm .... Chocolate Chip Cookies! I have to admit, we don't make chocolate chip cookies from scratch much any more, because Otis Spunkmeyer provides such yummy, easy dough (Costco carries the boxes). But sometimes, when we need a LOT of cookies and want to save a little dough (both literally and figuratively) then we do pull out the cookbook and bake up a big batch.  Here's our family favorite that I picked up from my friend Misty back when I was in Jr. High ... we almost always double this recipe too ...

Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup Shortening
1 Cup Butter
2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Granulated Sugar
2 Beaten Eggs
1 TBSP Vanilla
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
5 Cup Flour
Chocolate Chips

Cream Butter, Shortening, and sugars. Beat eggs, add to mixture with vanilla.  Sift dry ingredients together, add to mixture. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

Landon has actually been the main chocolate chip cookie maker lately. He wants to take a bunch to his friends, and I tell him he is welcome to, as long as he does the work himself ... and shares a few with the family.
