Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies
Everyone claims to have THE recipe for the perfect chocolate chip cookies. So, I'll just say these thick, soft, chewy, chips laden dudes are my #1 favs!
Servings 24 Cookies
- 2/3 Cup unsalted butter at room temperature
- 2/3 cup butter-flavored shortening
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light brown sugar packed
- 2 eggs large
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup pecans chopped-optional
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Stir the pecans and chocolate chips. Using a large cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a silpat lined cookie sheet.
Bake 14-16 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the centers are set. Don't overbake. Cool 5 minutes before removing cookies to cooling rack.
