Chocolate Chip Cookies


This is my preferred, above all others, chocolate chip cookie recipe. These are the cookies of my childhood. Bri asked me the other day what my favorite part was: the dough or the cookie. I love them both and cannot choose between one or the other. I enjoy the cookies fresh from the oven; though once they’ve cooled, my preferred way of eating them is to freeze them, retrieving a few and dunking them in milk, soaking it long enough that it gets nice and chewy.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup Crisco
  • 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 4 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the salt, soda, and flour, mixing until combined. Add in the chocolate chips; stir to incorporate.

Drop by rounded tablespoons and bake 9-10 minutes, or until golden brown.
