Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking and this chocolate chip cookie recipe has been in my family for years. I can remember my mom making it when I was a kid, and then I made it for my kids. Now my own kids make this recipe for themselves!

One day I came home and my oldest son was just pulling the last sheet of cookies out of the oven. The kitchen smelled delicious! I couldn’t wait to grab a cookie and an ice cold glass of milk.

You can imagine my disappointment when I looked at the cooling rack and not a single cookie had chocolate chips in them!

Apparently Cora told him she didn’t like chocolate chips and since Cora always gets what she wants from her big brothers he made a triple batch of “chipless” chocolate chip cookies!

I highly recommend using chocolate chips (or chunks) in these cookies, as they taste much better. 🙂

I love this recipe because it turns out every single time! You can’t mess it up, they always taste great!



Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies


  • 1 cup butter flavored shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla
  • 6-12 oz milk chocolate chips


  1. Cream together shortening and both sugars.
  2. Add eggs, flour, salt, baking soda, and vanilla.
  3. Mix thoroughly.
  4. Then add milk chocolate chips, add as many as you like, I have used a whole bag before. Mix them in with spoon so you don’t break up the chips.
  5. Drop on a cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

  1. I’m gonna save my milk ration today for these! I LOVE chocolate chip cookies, and so do my kids.

    I’ll start eating healthy tomorrow…

  2. I use the butter flavored crisco too – I just do 1/2 cup of that and 1/2 cup of butter. The butter crisco really makes a difference doesn’t it? I may just have to make some today too!
