Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups bleached all purpose flour (see note below)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (I use Ghirardelli brand)

Directions

  • Note: The recipe initially calls for 2 1/2 cups flour, but with the added note if you want them more softer and rounder cookie to add 1/4 cup flour. I add the 1/4 cup making it 2 3/4 cups total.
  • Cream shortening, butter, sugars, then eggs and vanilla and almond extracts.
  • Blend dry ingredients and add to mixture.
  • Stir in Chocolate chips.
  • Drop by large tablespoons (I use cookie scoop) onto ungreased cookie sheet, leaving 2-inches room in between to allow cookies to spread. I press down lightly with a measuring cup to bake more uniform cookies).
  • Bake at 375° for 10 minutes until lightly brown.
  • Makes 2-3 dozen cookies depending on size.
