Late nights in the fields, hungry kids and farmers, unexpected company, or just simply craving sweets, you will always find a homemade cookie in my kitchen.

This dough can be used immediately, refrigerated or frozen, and baked one pan at a time. Either way, it is easy to throw a pan full of cookie dough in the oven and still taste amazingly delicious.

We always have people, whether a friend or farmer, a supplier, or a mechanic, dropping by, and this dough makes it easy to have freshly baked Chocolate Chip Cookies for them.

There are countless recipes for this cookie, and I have tried many of them, but I always fall back to this never-fail recipe.

Crisp on the outside yet gooey on the inside; baked to perfection. This recipe is simple, straightforward, and made with basic ingredients easily found in your pantry.

My two secrets to this cookie recipe; are butter shortening, softening to room temperature, and not overbaking. Only bake for 9 minutes at 375° and take it out of the oven. Let them rest on the warm cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes before placing them on a cooling rack.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

•1 cup butter shortening, room temperature

•3/4 cup brown sugar, packed

•3/4 cup white sugar

•1/2 tsp pure vanilla; if using imitation, use 1 tsp

•1/2 tsp water

•2 eggs

•2 cups all-purpose flour

•1 tsp baking soda

•1 tsp salt

•2 cups chocolate chips

  1. Heat oven to 375°.

  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.

  3. Use an electric mixer and beat the shortening, white sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla until creamy in a large mixing bowl.

  4. Beat eggs together in a small bowl and add to mixer.

  5. Slowly add the flour mixture in small amounts until it is combined.

  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.

  7. Drop the dough by rounded Tablespoon onto cookie sheets.

  8. Bake 8-10 minutes at 375°. Let rest on the cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes, then move to cooling racks.

Sometimes just offering a warm cookie and a tall glass of milk will change someone's day. Enjoy this recipe as much as our farm, family, and friends do!

What is butter shortening? I've always used butter in CCC, but I'm willing to try something different.
