Mom's Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe


  • 1/2 cup butter softened not melted
  • 1/2 cup palm shortening regular shortening will work but that's what I use
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package chocolate chips


  1. Mix together the sugars, butter, shortening.
  2. Mix in the eggs and the vanilla.
  3. Add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix well.
  4. Add in the chocolate chips and take a minute to admire the cookie dough. (or if you are like me have a taste test)
  5. Drop the dough onto a greased cookie sheet. I like to use the muffin scooper to make them so they are bigger.
  6. Bake at 350F for 12 minutes or until slightly browned on the tops.
